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 our archive for articles specially written for us, as well as audio and video suggested by you.
We are not the BBC, we just link to every available podcast and let you listen again via iPlayer Radio to help in the move to listening online. After a while, you might not miss shortwave too much.
Search thousands of programmes across BBC Radio or follow your favourites from social media.
