Whats on shortwave

for languages, click on an hour for tx in that hour & language
(here you can fetch CSV data for (Open)Office if you click the language for the complete list))

http://users.fulladsl.be/~spb13810/radio/txlist/
for stations, click on an hour for tx in that hour & from that station
(here you can fetch CSV data for (Open)Office if you click the station for the complete list))

Use of the (previous and) following list: It’s 3 PM, where’s VOA now?? Where can I hear Spanish at 19 UT??
http://users.fulladsl.be/~spb13810/radio/timelist/
complete hourly lists of sw tx (with crosslinks to language/ station)

The source for this data is Eibi.

I put Aoki here;:
http://users.fulladsl.be/~spb13810/radio/swlistaoki/ for languages
http://users.fulladsl.be/~spb13810/radio/txlistaoki/ for stations
Space limits made me decide to drop hourly lists for Aoki.

There are more than 700 stations, more than 300 languages, that makes about 24 hours x ( 300 + 700) = 24000 files on the site.

I also made a comparison of the 2 sources: aoki and eibi: (frequency order) http://users.fulladsl.be/~spb13810/radio/indexsrc.htm

(I think about integrating HFCC data too)
PS: these are shortcuts:

(I hope I manage to do complete uploads in the future, I try to automate the complete process of Aoki/Eibi donwload up to the upload)

DSWCI Contest: The Super Grand Tour with Cancer and Capricorn

Der Danish Shortwave Club International veranstaltet zum 21. Mal den DX Contest “The Grand Tour with Cancer and Capricorn”. Diesmal sogar als “Super Grand Tour”, weil der Contest zum letzten Mal von Jaroslav Bohac durchgeführt wird. Ob es nächstes Jahr wieder einen Contest geben wird, ist unsicher. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um die letzte Gelegenheit, dieses Diplom zu erlangen.

Der Wettbewerb läuft vom 23. November bis 20. Dezember 2009. Einsendeschluss ist der 31. Dezember 2009 (Poststempel). Teilnehmen können alle, unabhängig von einer Mitgliedschaft in einem DX-Club.

Weitere Informationen sowie das Teilnahmeformular sind hier erhältlich:

Radio Prague close down on shortwave ?

There was a posting on DXLD that Radio Prague might leave shortwave end of 2009.
It has just been announced that the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs is looking for Radio Prague to end all shortwave transmissions from the Czech Republic at the end of 2009. This would be an irreversible step. Radio Prague is the only customer at Litomysl and this would result in the closing and dismantling of that transmitter site.

Radio Prague needs to get listeners support at this time. Their address is:

Radio Prague
Vinohradská 12
120 99 Prague 2
Czech Republic

Tel: (+420) 221 552 933
Fax: (+420) 221 552 903

New books

I thought you might like to know that two books about shortwave broadcasting and DXing history that I have been working on for the last three years have now been published. They are /Listening on the Short Waves, 1945 to Today,/ and /Broadcasting on the Short Waves, 1945 to Today./ These books pick up where my first book, /On the Short Waves, 1923-1945: Broadcast Listening in the Pioneer Days of Radio,/ left off. More information about the books can be found at the publisher’s website www.mcfarlandpub.com (search for “Berg”) and at my website www.ontheshortwaves.com (“New Books”).
