Shortwave and DX Listening Websites

The Shortwave spectrum is regarded as the radio frequencies in the range from 1.8 to 30 mHz. International, or Regional Broadcasters sometimes use this range of frequencies to reach target audiences, but are correctly listed in Arts/International Broadcasters because broadcasting is a performing art, for the consumption of many. Listening to or monitoring such broadcasts and others such as utility, aircraft, marine, and military radio broadcasts by individuals is a radio-related, recreational hobby much like CB and Scanner listening. Monitoring activity, which is not restricted only to ShortWave frequencies, is often categorized in two ways, namely Short Wave Listening and DXing, or DX Listening. Short Wave Listening (SWL) is the casual and regular reception of International Broadcasters such as the BBC, Deutsche Welle, and Radio Canada International, among many others. They are easily heard by intended or target audience, through powerful shortwave transmitters, satellite broadcasts.
