The European MW Station Guide

This site was originally inspired by a now defunct website, the Euro-African Medium Wave Guide. Because of a poor (to say the least!) home location I'm often out and about when MW DXing and I found the site an invaluable resource when coming across an unidentified station. This site is designed to make it as easy as possible to answer the question "what's that station?"

The site has been developed to be as simple and straightforward as possible to use on smart mobile phones and tablets. Very few images are used and very little bandwidth is required, making it ideal when out 'in the field' with a low-speed connection and low-power device.

On a technical level, the site is written in Python using the Django framework.

Please do send me your feedback, comments, bugs, ideas for improvements, and data corrections/updates via email:

Please note that I am not a radio station - if you are trying to contact a radio station, please Google your request again.

Welcome to the new-look European Medium Wave Guide. I've done a bit of tidying-up of the site and database - any corrections/updates would be much appreciated. Just email me:
