Are you a shortwave radio listener (SWL) in need of an up to date set of schedules for international broadcast stations? Shortwave Broadcast Schedules is a handy app that displays broadcast schedules of about 11,000 longwave, mediumwave, and shortwave broadcast stations. The stations are initially listed in order by frequency. You can tap a button to see which stations are on the air right now, as well as search for stations by name, frequency, time of day that they are on, or select by language, target area, or country of origin. Stations currently on the air are displayed in bold, making it quick and easy to see which stations are on right now. The app can keep a log of stations you have heard, with the date, time, frequency, SIO, and other notes you wish to enter. Now your device can be your personal logbook! You can keep track of favorite stations, as well as set reminders for favorite broadcasts, so you’ll never forget about a transmission again. Tap on a station to bring up more information about the station, such as the country of origin, target area, and programming language. When viewing the details for a station, you can tap on the frequency, country, target, or language to get a list of all other stations with that matching value. You can also tap on Schedule to see all of the transmissions throughout the day for this station. Updated schedules can be downloaded for free. Visit the support page for step by step instructions on using the app: Get your copy of Shortwave Broadcast Schedules, and never miss listening to another of your favorite stations again. Note: A shortwave radio is required to listen to the broadcasts.



  • Excellent tool for Shortwave listening

    By Nitro3346
    I have been using this app for a few days now and find it to be very useful. There are some navigation issues that need to be fixed such as dismissing the keyboard after making notes. I would also like some way to sort log files by frequency. As is, the list is sorted by date only. I would like to know if I have listened to this station before, so a lot of scrolling is required. But I give it 4 out of 5 stars for it’s overall design.
  • Comphensive listings.

    It actually works. I’m a SWL and ham radio operator since 1967. This is the real deal! I hope they will offer an equally elegant program for scanner enthusiasts

    It's very helpful!! 🙂
  • Very Useful App!

    By pjxii
    I use this app all the time. It covers from 10 kHz where there is submarine communication on the VLF all the way up to the top of the shortwave broadcasting band. There are many ways to sort through what you want, by country frequency time etc. Besides the shortwave broadcasters, I really like the fact that a lot of utility stations are listed. Very well done and informative!
  • great stuff

    By James KC3CDV
    I am very picky what I use for shortwave as i've ben doing this now for several years and this app is just great, if I find a freq and don't know what it is, I can just punch it up and this here little app tells me what it is. Thank you Chris for your design and to those others who helped as well with the design, thank you.
  • No longer works with iOS 11.3

    Awkward navigation when it still worked. Much easier to use other online resources with browser. Disappointing, as I really wanted something that works without a network connection. iOS 11.3 on iPad Pro 9.7
  • SWL Awesome APP

    By Jpechie
    Perfect for swl listening. Great for urban dxexpeditions.
  • Lazy implementation

    By Mooshx
    I don’t think the developer really tested this app before shipping. As a developer myself I feel this is one of the laziest implementations I’ve seen in the App store. If a large unsortable list of data is what you are looking for this may be your app. Beware of bringing up the keyboard — the only way to dismiss (on iPhone at least) is to SHUTDOWN the app.
