SWL Guide Websites
« on: October 12, 2013, 11:59:39 PM »
I've been monitoring SW broadcasts quite a bit lately and I thought I'd pass along a website I've found very helpful in navigating around all the S-meter pegging, fire and brimstone, religious stations here in the US - no offense if that's your thing but it's definitely not my cup of tea.


It's very versatile in that you can specify any combination of language, radio station, time, etc and it will spit out what's on the air, when, where on the dial and also display the transmitter location on a gray line map. I normally listen to Radio Habana Cuba, Radio Romania International, Radio Australia International and China Radio International; this site makes it easy to figure out which one of the multiple transmitters the stations have are using and at what time.

Interesting site. Actually a bit educational if you bother to read the whole thing.

So what does the rest of the world think of the games our government is playing with respect to its' effect on them?

Thanks for posting that link. From the assumption that the net may not be there at some point - or one may not be at the net - it's worth perusing & listening to find who broadcasts what of need, and write it down.
Very well done website for its type.

Now back to facilitating the in-law exodus...

Good point. I have a bunch of schedules already written down for that very reason but obviously nowhere near as inclusive as what's available on the website. Of course there's always the tried and true method of just spinning the old VFO knob to find stations.

I love short-wave.info, great site. It's easy to navigate and I use it pretty frequently. Although, I still pine for the days of the old yearly editions of "Passport to World Band Radio." I miss that book.

World Radio Television Handbook (WRTH) was my favorite: http://www.wrth.com/
