Alex updates frequency charts and upgrades format

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Alex, who notes updates to his excellent frequency charts. Alex writes:

My charts are updated again. This time I have changed format and made the charts less time consuming to compile and – I think – more user friendly too.

The result is they are updated for the summer schedule much earlier – there are still 6 months of summer to go for them to be useful!

For each hour, the listener is given a running order of about 30 stations that are most worthwhile to try. Doing it this way means you can easily compare the reception quality of the different frequencies for the same station and also get an idea of each broadcaster’s strategy for reaching listeners.

For the summer, I have put the top station as number 51, down to about 80. Many radios have enough storage to allow you to set a page for each hour and then up to 100 presets for each page. This means you can check your favourite stations in a couple of minutes. There is less detail, but today time is so precious, the ease of use seemed to me to be the priority for the charts. (I have numbered 1 to 30 for the winter charts)

Thank you for once again updating and sharing your handy broadcast charts, Alex!

Alex’s updated frequency charts

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Alex, who notes that he’s updated his frequency charts once again. Alex writes:

I have updated my short wave charts for the summer season. There was a lot on this summer, so sadly the charts are rather late in the season, but at least there is still a month to go.

Nice to report an increase in what you can hear clearly in English in the UK. Radio Kuwait seems to have a new transmitter and are pumping in a good signal in the mornings on 15.53 from 05-08 GMT to add to Romania plus music from Radio Austria and Greece. Short Wave lives on!

Indeed it does, Alex!  Thank you for once again updating and sharing your excellent charts!
