Franco's MW / LW / SW radio scan list


15 Mαϊ 2010
Let's take this occasion and let's insert a complete MW bandscan list (I'm working on it since the year of 1994-95, so it's constantly changing and updating...) If someone of you is curious to try a MW listening in Greece, I would like to propose my list as a help... (since I live on the Ionian sea coast in Apulia, the area of covering signals is very similar to Greece...)

HOW TO USE THE LIST: is very simple, you will find the frequency, then the name of the station, and where possible the location of the transmitter... Have fun !!!!

your lists are awesome! can't wait to find a radio with MW / LW / SW choices (unfortunately i don't have one yet :( ) !

i have a question,ert filia has english programs only?
Hi my friend krem13 !!!! Well, I have found this for you about ERT Filia... btw, in the night hours the station links with Kosmos 93.6 and rebroadcasts this other ERT station...

And if you are searching for a cheap and powerful radio receiver, please allow me to give some suggestions to you:

This is the one that I own for my MW-LW and SW dx-ing experiments... the HAV-PR40 model from Konig brand...

(the Konig HAV-PR40 that here in Italy costs approximately 20 euros...)

Or there is also this Chinese radio equipment that is very very very very good and accurate, with high sensitivity... the KIPO brand model KB-AC807B... tested and approved !!!!

(here the reception of the pirates in X-band is excellent, although it has got analogic and no digital tuning... btw, even if the maximum limit declared is 1605 kHz in MW X-band, if you force a little bit the tuning knob and push it to the maximum limit, you can receive a lot of pirates... for example, you can fix it and mantain it with a screwdriver...)

Anyway, these are my "secret dreams"... who knows probably one day I will be able to purchase one of them... they are really expensive...
