This is cross-posted to the radio board, but I didn't get any responses, so I thought I'd post it here, too, in the hopes that another radio buff might provide an answer...

My husband and I are starting a class in early January for our technician class ham radio licenses, but we're concerned because our shortwave radios pick up very few signals in the apartment where we now live.

We know that technician class licensees are often assigned to higher frequencies than can be picked up on shortwave but we're wondering if the poor reception on HF should be a concern.
