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

A24 Season - Databases for June 2024

ILGRadio Frequency Databases available with various file
formats uploaded on a nearly daily basis if new data available

Your DAILY Database of Broadcasting & UTILITY

Latest release now with approx. 76000 data sets (A version)
Look for improved new Structure and here on the Download page

ILGRadio includes now all broadcasting stations between 150 - 1602 khz of Europe, Africa, Middle East & South Asia with power from 1 Watt,
the Asia stations are listed from incl. 100 kW so far, but no American/Pacific stations included. This change made from April 2nd 2023.

ILG database files are based on the ILG master database with more than 200 000 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. 2 250 000 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. Each month nearly 3000 observations will be added or replaced old data.
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

FINAL A24 STATISTIC ("A" version 76681 sets Broadcasting/UTILITY) of month of April 30th 2024:

Broadcasting sets: AM: 11400 (without Jamming), DRM: 181, SSB: 3360, Jamming: 1896 (AM/DRM)
UTILITY sets: ALE MIL-STD: 40686, various Digital: 7285, Telex: 4516, Morse: 3337, Voice: 3706, FAX: 226, EMAIL: 88
Multiple monitoring observations of same signal entry during the month only given one time here !

Data of monitoring given in Data Field  YEAR  e.g. "2404" = received in April 2024... Data of B23 season not included.
Broadcasting transmissions (no UTILITY) effective/stopped until March 30th 2024 deleted and not included !

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 B23 season were all deleted and will be completely monitored again during current A24 season !!!

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 !
