Welcome to ILGRadio

The number ONE short wave database, second to none, none is more up-to-date...
ILGRadio the most comprehensive short wave database of broadcasting & UTILITY with unique highlights:
precise schedules, technical data, transmitter site position, graphical diagram "Times by Lines", last monitoring data infos

B22 Season - February 2023

ILGRadio Frequency Databases available with various file
formats uploaded since September on a daily basis

Your DAILY Database of Broadcasting & UTILITY

Latest release now with approx. 80000 data sets (A version)
Look for improved new Structure and here on the Download page

ILG database files are based on the ILG master database with more than 150 000 data sets of which each year approx. 20 000
will be completely replaced. In this huge database with 100 data fields all monitoring observations are included in two data fields.
Here are approx. 2 000 000 monitoring observations included which will be updated on a nearly daily basis and this allows to prepare
the operational transmissions hours of the UTILITY stations in ILG.
The source of broadcasting schedules is based on direct contacts to the stations or deep-in monitoring if no schedules are available.
No "Copy & Paste" is made, e.g. a copy from the HFCC database.
ILGRadio is based on the professional ILG Database and therefore all those who lie and cheat in the HFCC with fake registrations are exposed.
This all gives the most up-to-date and comprehensive database of the world...  
Why the bandscans are made:
- to check what is on air as listed in official schedules and HFCC requirements
- to check clear the HF channels
- to check the wooden entries of requirements of the HFCC database
- to check and monitor JAMMING transmissions not listed in HFCC/ITU databases
- to check for transmitter errors (tuning, intermodulation, harmonic,...)
- to check non-broadcasting invaders (UTILITY stations in broadcasting bands)
- to check UTILITY transmissions (non-broadcasting) if on air or not active
- to check the own ILG data for errors

Facts that confirm the High Quality of this Database

Broadcasting: AM: 9385, DRM: 313, SSB: 1570, Jamming: 1570 sets
UTILITY: ALE MIL-STD: 42771, various Digital: 8418, Telex: 5507, Morse: 3764, Voice: 4182 sets

Data of monitoring given in Data Field  YEAR  e.g. "2211" = received in November 2022...

monitored during year 2013:     567 data entries
monitored during year 2012:     529 data entries
Many transmissions were monitored every few days but listed in above score list ONLY one time, so there are much more obeservations!
Old monitoring dates will be always overwritten by latest observations, "old" entries not currently observed but still valid !
Broadcasting monitoring dates of former A22 season were all deleted and will be completely monitored again during B22 season !!!

    ILGRadio´s Milestones in Short Wave Publishing

    - daily upload of ILGRadio files since September 2022
    - unique database based on daily bandscans and monitoring session
    - ILGRadio is based on professional ILG database for frequency managers
    - largest UTILITY database incl.most comprehensive ALE call sign lists
    - largest database in HFCC format incl. broadcasting and UTILITY stations
    - largest lookup tables of tx-sites and broadcasters in HFCC 3-digit format
    - no copy and paste of other sources e.g. HFCC etc
    - first database with UTILITY time schedules or operational hours in UTC
    - first database including complete broadcasting frequency schedules
    - first database with graphical diagram "Times by Lines" with language info
    - first database inluding technical details of all broadcasting stations
    - first database with nearly all verified data by monitoring during the season
    - first database inluding monitoring dates for nearly all database entries


These ILGRadio Databases are provided to promote and advance the hobbie of Short Wave Radio Listening and Monitoring with accurate details of stations broadcasting between 1.6 to 30 MHz.

ILGRadio's Philosophy
- see what you receive in ILG´s Graphical Diagram
- tune in to the very precise frequencies
- explore when broadcast was monitored last time
- search your favorites within latest schedules
- identify transmissions you tune in immediately
- run your PERSEUS SDR display like an RDS radio
- do not waste time with fake schedules of others
- you will not find HFCC/ITU schedule grave yards
- download latest updates on a regular time
- pay a fair acceptable low rate for a year

ILGRadio is available for a very small amount of money as a recognition for all the work for investigation and trouble.
That´s why there is the wish that your access data were NOT given to other persons, who paid for nothing. Please accept this.
If you would use ILGRadio for your professional job, please pay the higher price or more. Many thanks !
