Bbc & cbs?

My ICOM 802 lists both as being broadcast via SSB. Does anyone know if they are still doing so and if so, when and on what frequency? I'm out in Fiji and would love to hear them.

You can google the BBC and CBS and find the broadcast frequencies and times. You can also get the VOA.

Re: Bbc & cbs?

I suspect Icom has not updated their frequency list in some time. I know on my 802 there are Shipcom frequencies not in the data set.

BBC World Service has shut down most of their transmitters except for those aimed at the third world. There is still a lot you can pick up. See BBC World Service - Programme Guide

I don't think CBS Radio transmits on shortwave anymore but I could be wrong.

Voice of America (VOA) and Armed Forces Radio Network (AFRN) are still out there on shortwave.

The AM broadcast band is great for spelunking over long distances, particularly at and just after sunset during the period of grayline propagation.

The World Radio TV Handbook (issued annually) is a good source for frequencies and schedules for shortwave and longwave broadcasts.
