Global Radio Guide (Summer 2020) Now Available

During times of emergency and crisis, radio hobbyists worldwide turn on their radios and tune to the shortwave radio spectrum for context, perspective, and insight into what is happening around the globe. As tensions heat up in the world’s hotspots, you can follow these events on radio, and you need an accurate and comprehensive radio guide to hear the action.

Teak Publishing is proud to announce the release of that all-important radio resource – the Global Radio Guide (GRG), 14th edition (Summer 2020) e-book, by Amazon bestselling author Gayle Van Horn, W4GVH. The book was formerly known as the International Shortwave Broadcast Guide.

Teak Publishing co-founder and GRG author, Gayle Van Horn, says that for this 14th edition, they have brought back the popular SDR Buyers’ Guide and expanded their coverage of SDR information, by popular demand.

“Based on the responses from our readers of the 13th edition of the GRG, we have expanded the coverage of SDRs in this 14th edition”, says Van Horn. “SDRs are truly the future of our hobby and DXers need a source they can trust for information on this booming industry.”

SDR coverage in this edition includes direction finding HF stations using the SDR.hu network of radios by Mike Chace-Ortiz. Tom Witherspoon takes an AirSpy HF+ Discovery into the field and shows us how we can truly operate a portable receiving station. There is also an introductory article on Software Defined Radios, an updated SDR buyers guide, and an in-depth equipment review on the new SDRPlay RSPdx SDR.

[…]You can find this edition of the Global Radio Guide, along with all of our titles currently available for purchase, on the Teak Publishing Web site at www.teakpublishing.com

I first learned about this guide thanks to you and the SWLing Post, and their content and “Hour by Hour” listening guide reminds me of the old “Passport to World Band Radio” of days gone by.

73, and here’s to a wonderful 2020!

Thank you so much for the tip, Dan! I should mention that the guide also has a substantial introduction section with articles, propagation forecasts, and product reviews.
