Shortwave Info

Here is some handy information for short wave or HF (high frequency) listening.
Short wave is an awesome form of DX.  Short wave signals travel literally "around the world".  Therefore, you can pick up signals from other countries easily.  From time to time our CME's include short wave monitoring as well.  

What's out there?  What's there to listen to?  The World Radio TV Handbook (see  www.wrth.com ) is an excellent source for short wave information. The handbook is basically the whole ball of wax....every TV and radio station in the world, short wave included.
The following file is a PDF file containing the summer '05 shortwave broadcasting schedules. (Thanks to fellow DXer Mauno Ritola for providing this to us).
