The Shortwave Radio Listener's Guide - Fading From The Air And Going Online

Best Long-Distance Reception Will Be Around 05:07 And 19:09 GMT Today

Using shortwave radio for broadcasting is on the way out in favour of listening online. There may be a place for shortwave in the future, but it will only target audiences where internet use is restricted.

Search for articles specially written for us, as well as audio and video suggested by you. We archive documents from the history of shortwave listening and amateur radio, along with manuals, how-to guides and operating notes from the classic receivers of yesterday to the digital techniques used today.

Search for thousands of BBC Radio shows and perhaps you won't miss shortwave radio too much.
