looking for stations to listen to

Post by Tater Schu » Fri, 27 Feb 2004 23:57:59

I live in central wisconsin and am looking for frequencies that
stations run on. I've been trying to find something on the shortwave
band but I have been getting nothing but static. I'd like to know of a
couple of good steady frequencies so I can make sure I get an antenna
working properly

These two links should get you started.

http://www.anarc.org/naswa/swlguide/
(click the "current hour" button)

http://www.primetimeshortwave.com
(click "sorted by time")

Times for shortwave broadcasts are in UTC.
5 hours ahead of US eastern time in winter
6 hours ahead of US central time in winter
7 hours ahead of US mountain time in winter
8 hours ahead of US pacific time in winter

WWV (Colorado) or WWVH (Hawaii) 2.5, 5.0, 10.0,15.0 20.0 megaherz transmit
time pips, weather information and spaceweather conditions every minute . If
you can hear any one of them, your radio is working good and so is your
antenna.

And if those dont work out for you I might go down on 6.925 USB tonight and
play something out of this world for you around 0200 UTC if I get the free
time!
