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: email@example.com.
Please note that I am not a radio station - if you are trying to contact a radio station, please Google your request again.
LPAM and RSL (temporary) stations
All listed 1-2 watt LPAMs in the UK are verified as on-air, either from recent reception (via web-SDRs or on my own personal travels) or from recent web or social media activity mentioning the MW frequency.
Stations operating on an 'induction loop' system inside a hospital or university campus building are not listed as they can not generally be received outside the building concerned.
I do need some assistance keeping the comings and goings of Netherlands LPAM stations up-to-date - if you are reading this and can help, please do get in touch!
While I make every attempt to keep the listing up-to-date with temporary radio stations, the list is not likely to be complete, particularly outside the UK.
