The 52 years old DSWCI which counts experienced DX-ers in 33 countries all over the world as members, has just issued the 11th Edition of its annual Domestic Broadcasting Survey. This survey is divided into four parts:
Part 1: The 36th edition of the Tropical Bands Survey covering all ACTIVE broadcasting stations on 2300 - 5700 kHz.
Part 2: Domestic stations on international shortwave bands above 5700 kHz broadcasting to a domestic audience.
Part 3: All ACTIVE Clandestine shortwave stations are now listed in one frequency order with schedules and identifications.
Part 4: 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 many official sources and DX-bulletins. A09 schedules are included when available. In order to make the DBS reliable, our own monitors around the world have checked throughout the period May 2008 - April 2009, if each of the 1000 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 April 27, 2008 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 4. Other useful features for easy identification (ID) are the parallel frequencies and reference to Station ID slogans. Reviews can be found on http://www.dswci.org/ All buyers of DBS-11 will get a username and password to the monthly updates on the tropical bands published as "Tropical Bands Monitor" on our website. The similar data from 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 are available at www.dswci.org/tbm to anybody. The 35 pages A-4 size DBS-11 is available by e-mail as pdf-format (about 452 KB).
