The first Traveler's Guide To World Radio was a good idea; in theory. It was small (3¼"W x 7½"H or 9.5 x 19 cm) and easily carried, especially if you were traveling by air. It listed not only shortwave broadcasts to a particular city but also MW and FM frequencies in those cities. There was also a short survey of portable receivers and two pages dealing with worldwide plugs and sockets, which I found very useful. It was laid out as much the same way as the PWBR, with the time bars. The short receiver reviews were noticeably designed for travelers that needed a small, lightweight and inconspicuous radio that was able to make it through various checkpoints. I still found myself lugging around the WRTH and PWBR, even overseas.
