Shortwave Radio Schedules App

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. 

The app conveniently lists the complete schedules compiled by Eibi and AOKI, including almost every known shortwave station currently on air, their times, frequencies and transmitter sites. Best of all, this data can be recalled without an Internet connection should access be unavailable.

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.

  1. Hi,

    Stephen here. Glad you enjoy the app and the website. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for either and Ill do my best to implement them. I'm looking at bringing some of the logging options from the site to the app.
