Another one bites the dust!

Further to my last entry- I mentioned that Radio Prague allowed you to submit reception reports online. Well not for much longer as it seems that Radio Prague is also about to leave the shortwave bands at the end of 2010. It seems that the days of European Shortwave broadcasters are numbered with the internet taking over. As radio amateurs this may be good news in the long term as it looks as if there will be a lot of empty space on shortwave. Maybe we will get an extra band or two?


  1. That's just what I was thinking when I first started reading your post. That we will have one less bit of competition. Seems you read out there that the airwaves are in demand but then there are segments that really don't seem to be.

  2. HI,

    Yes I think it is the VHF/UHF bands that are in demand. Nobody seems to be interested in the HF spectrum!
