    How much do stopwatches with the ability to record ten's of lap times
    cost?

    Additionally, how much could I get a shortwave-only radio for?  I have
    one that covers six radio bands including shortwave, but it was built
    when Americans were lunar explorers.  I can hardly tune any station in.
