NASWA WWW Shortwave Listening Guide

The NASWA WWW Shortwave Listening Guide is now closed. It has become clear that the people behind it no longer have time to maintain the database, and leaving it in place with increasingly misleading listings is no longer tenable. We thank you for your visits over the many years that this resource was available.

John Figliozzi now publishes a book, The Worldwide Listening Guide, the successor to the book on which this site was originally based. The book covers all methods of hearing international programs, not just shortwave.

The NASWA WWW Shortwave Listening Guide was originated by John Figliozzi, author of the book The Worldwide Shortwave Listening Guide, last published by Universal Radio in 2001. After October, 2005, the database was maintained by Ralph Brandi, NASWA webmaster, with assistance from John and from NASWA Easy Listening columnist Richard Cuff. The database was shut down on October 11, 2012.

Web interface and programming by Ralph Brandi, based on work by Pete Costello as authorized by The Worldwide Shortwave Listening Guide author and database maintainer John Figliozzi.

John Figliozzi would like to thank the North American Shortwave Association and the Ontario DX Association for their support over the years. Ralph Brandi would like to thank John Figliozzi for his herculean efforts over the years to create and maintain this database, and for graciously allowing NASWA to continue his efforts when he had to step aside.

Please note that NASWA continues its other operations, including monthly publication of The NASWA Journal. The only thing shutting down is this database. For further information about NASWA, visit the front page of
