BBC Shortwave Question... by nowyat on 4 August 2003 3:59am
I noticed in ATWIED that Mr. Palin and company always listened to the BBC on their shortwave at night. I live in America and our local public radio station broadcasts the BBC news hour from 12am to 2am. I have a small shortwave radio. Can anyone tell me the times and stations of all BBC broadcasts? I found where to listen to them on the internet, and I'm listening to a dramatic re-enactment of A Tale Of Two Cities right now, but it would be more portable if I had shortwave stations to listen to during the day. Maybe my little battery radio is too weak to get all the stations available on the internet? Sorry if this is a dumb question...

(In the "Tale Of Two Cities" they said during the French revolution citizens in London could hear the roar of the mob in Paris. I can't even get the BBC...) nowyat, Oregon, USA

You can find loads of information about frquencies and schedules at http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice . No matter whereabouts in the world you are going (or are living) the WS is very useful. I found it invaluable when I was in Italy.

Thank you very much! I even found where I can look up listings for the nearest large city in my area. I don't know how I missed that before. (I can never find anything...) Thanks for your help!
