Update to Don Moore’s Marine Broadcast List

Marine Broadcast List Updated

By Don Moore

I just updated my by-time listing of scheduled marine broadcasts in the MF 1600-3400 kHz range. This is primarily based on the by-location listings at the DX Info Centre website. Of special interest at the moment is Iqaluit Coast Guard Radio in Canada which uses six different transmitter sites in the Canadian Arctic. These seasonal broadcasts will be ending soon with the close of Arctic navigation.

The spreadsheet also includes a tab of selected scheduled marine broadcasts on HF frequencies. It does not include easier stations such as the US Coast Guard or the stations in Australia. See the DX Info Centre for complete by-frequency listings.

    Thank you so much for posting this, and I enjoyed looking up your previous post on this (I believe I read it at the time, but had forgotten it – so much radio, so little time!)
    Thank you for all the hard work!
    Cheers! Robert

    This is a treasure trove of goodies and the two articles (in my not-so-humble opinion) are just great.

    Cheers, Jock

    Hi Don,

    Great info.
    Thanks so much.

    might you provide for me some detailed info.
    on what modes are used where, and for what ?

    Old age problem.
    I always have uncertainty re what the mode is.

    Much appreciated.

      Bob: Suggest looking at the links, info is all there. Mode is USB (utility station broadcasts always use USB in my experience).
      Don: thanks for compiling and publishing this great resource!
