French language on shortwave radio

Post by Charles Hawtr » Tue, 24 Feb 2004 14:49:24

Is there a readily available compilation of French-language
transmissions on shortwave radio?  I would like to listen as a way of
building (recovering) my skills in French, but cannot find a listing
of times and frequencies.  Such compilations are available for
English-language programming so I thought maybe such a thing could
exist for French-language programming as well.  

The RFI web site is not very helpful.

In the guide Passport look in the "Voices from home" section.

Belgium

For RFI's transmissions only:
Cliquez ici for a .pdf file of their transmission schedule and frequencies:

I know it's not the answer to your question, but it's a start.

I think ILGRADIO has a set of language-specific databases.
You can also filter the main database by language in any
of the standard readers.

I'm guessing you live in North America?

Here's radio canada's list:
http://www.rcinet.ca/horaires/B03_SW_24h.pdf

After 9pm or so Pacific time I like to see if i can pick up some
african stations.  The best bet for me is Nigeria in french on 7255
kHz, occasionally I can hear Africa No. 1 in french on 9580 kHz, and
Radio Conakry, Guinea on 7125.  

I'm not aware if any radio from france is available on shortwave to
the USA.

There may be canadian stations in your area that you can pick up in
mediumwave, if you live in the northeast US.
