years old DSWCI which counts experienced DX-ers in 32 countries all
the world as members, has issued the 16th
Edition of its
annual Domestic Broadcasting Survey. This survey is
divided into three parts:
Part 1: The 42nd edition of the Tropical Bands Survey covering all ACTIVE broadcasting stations on 2300 - 5700 kHz, including clandestines.
Part 2: Domestic stations on international shortwave bands above 5700 kHz broadcasting to a domestic audience.
Part 3: Deleted frequencies between 2 and 30 MHz which have not been reported heard during the past five years, but may reappear.
This new Survey is based upon monitoring by our members, many official sources and DX-bulletins. A14 schedules are included when available. But about 70 domestic shortwave stations frequencies have left the bands, so this DBS-16 is thinner. Therefore the DSWCI has decided to reduce the prices. In order to make the DBS reliable, our own monitors around the world have checked throughout the period April 2013 – March 2014, if each of the 570 station frequencies is on the air. ACTIVE stations are marked with an A (”Regular”), B (”Irregular”) or C (”Sporadic”) in the list. D means ”Likely inactive”.
A unique feature is the right column called ”Last log”. It shows the last month and year before DBS deadline on March 31, 2014 when the particular station was reported logged by a DX-er somewhere in the world. This is another way of indicating the current audibility of the station. To avoid inactive stations in this DBS, most frequencies which have not been heard during the past year, have been deleted and are moved to Part 3. No other frequency list has this feature!
Other useful features for easy identification (ID) are the parallel frequencies and reference to Station ID slogans.
All buyers of DBS-16 will get a username and password to the monthly updates on the tropical bands published as "Tropical Bands Monitor" on our website. The similar, historical data from 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 are available to anybody at www.dswci.org/tbm .
