The Domestic Broadcasting Survey 12 (DBS-12), April 2010

The DOMESTIC BROADCASTING SURVEY 12 (DBS-12), April 2010 edited by DSWCI Chairman, Anker Petersen. ISSN 1399-8218

NEW SURVEY AVAILABLE: The 53 years old DSWCI which counts experienced DX-ers in 33 countries all over the world as members, has just issued the 12th Edition of its annual Domestic Broadcasting Survey. This survey is divided into three parts:

Part 1: The 38th 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 many official sources and DX-bulletins. A10 schedules are included when available.

In order to make the DBS reliable, our own monitors around the world have checked throughout the period May 2009 – March 2010, if each of the 900 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, 2010 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.

Other useful features for easy identification (ID) are the parallel frequencies and reference to Station ID slogans.

All buyers of DBS-12 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, 2008 and 2009 are available at to anybody.

The 28 pages A-4 size DBS-12 is available by e-mail as pdf-format (about 365 KB). A limited number is also available printed on paper. Since the clandestines are not included any longer above 5700 kHz, the prices have been reduced.
