One indispensable tool in radio monitoring is a reference book, or as is the case today, a smartphone app for devices using the Android operating system. One such app is Shortwave Radio Schedules developed by Stephen Cooper.
Identifying a station is simple and may be done a number ways. One can search a station by name, frequency or time. Additionally, the app uses Google Maps to show the targeted transmission beam of each station. One may even log and record one's observations with this app.
Android users can acquire the app HERE. For non-Android users the schedule can be found on the Internet HERE.
I have used the app on a Samsung Galaxy 3 Tab for nearly four months now, and I find it remarkably stable and useful. I heartily recommend it!!! Thank you, Stephen.
