I used to listen to the Deutsche Welle on SW, but it's easier just to use the internet.

I do still have a shortwave radio but rarely turn it on.Today SW seems to be dominated by China Radio International but I was once an avid listener of Radio Australia,Radio Canada International,Voice of America,Radio Netherlands,The Armed Forces Radio and Television service,Radio Sweden ,to name but a few.

The internet has made things too easy.Shame really.


This is interesting

It is true that the Chinese radio dominates over SW. In earlier decades, I could hear Russians, Croatian, Vaticanese, Austrian, French... radios on SW. There were many Serbian language programs. Also, Turkish and Arabic stations also dominate over SW.

I miss searching for those interval signals as a station prepared to broadcast.

A virtual SW radio receiver, if you don't have a real one. :)

Maybe they will do virtual transmitters next. :D
