Mark is an intelligent but shy teenager who has just moved to Arizona from the East Coast. His parents give him a short-wave radio so he can talk to his pals, but instead he sets up shop as pirate deejay Hard Harry, who becomes a hero to his peers while inspiring the wrath of the local high school principal. When one of Harry's listeners commits suicide and Harry- inspired chaos breaks out at the school, the authorities are called in to put a stop to Harry's broadcasts. Written by

Mark says his father gave him this Short Wave transmitter to communicate with his friends to the East. Shortwave radio is radio transmission using shortwave frequencies, generally from 1.6 to 30 MHz, just above the medium wave AM broadcast band. There is no way that these frequencies can be tuned from car radios or common radios, as shown in the film. See more
