Recordings made possible by using shortwave receivers made by



Since it seems I ran out of space on the other pages for my audio files I found this spot to park them all in .Here you will find a large assortment of audio files of everything from the BBC to an Indonesian regional..

If you are interested in learning how to do this there are a few tools out there to use.

Most computers running Windows will have something such as SoundRecorder or Media Player. You can use those to record off the radio directly with a patch cord from the headphone out to a mic in or line in jack depending on your soundcard specs. In Linux there will be all sorts of tools to use such as Audacious or similiar programs. The Real media has fallen by the wayside.With new compression techniques it's possible to keep file sizes down to a reasonable level now.


The radios I have used for this site are as follows.

1. Sangean ATS803A

2.Realistic DX380

3.Drake R-4A

4. Motorola built R-390( Collins )

Links for the radio manufacturers are as follows:

Sangean - A World of Listening

Motorola, Inc.

Hopefully this will get you started on making your own recordings, or at least give you an idea of how to do it .
