Some time ago I promised to tell you something about my listening station and the use of the ILG database. Due to circumstances this never happened and therefore now a short description. I have been using the ILGRadio database for three or four years now (after a publication by Nils Schiffhauer) and I like the information and the regular updates. The ILG database is converted into excel and added with my own findings...  E-Mail of 28th October 2020 by Arnold

QSL, all good! THank you for prompt reply and have a nice summer. This is the first time I´ll try your databases.
I have a some experieces from Klingenfuss publication.  E-Mail of 19th July 2018 by Vesa
wollte nur anmerken, dass diese Frequenzdatenbank für mich eine extreme Hilfe ist und ich die Subscription plane fortzusetzen!
Ich hatte vorher die Datenbank von Jörg Klingenfuss versucht, leider in der elektronischen Version sehr allgemein gehalten und
Major Services fehlen, bzw.sind dafür Dienste in der Karibik eingetragen.... hier war ich leider sehr enttäuscht!
Um so positiver und begeisterter bin ich von der ILG Liste, wo auch detailreich Betriebsarten eingepflegt wurden... daher bitte weitermachen!!!
Leider ist es immer so eine Sache mit dem Dank der Allgemeinheit, kritisiert wird schnell, gedankt eher weniger.... in diesem Sinne....
keep up the work, good job!  E-Mail of 18th July 2018 by Jose
In English:

just wanted to say that this frequency database is an extreme help for me and I plan to continue the subscription!
I had previously tried the database of Jörg Klingenfuss, unfortunately in the electronic version very general and
Major services are missing, or are for services in the Caribbean registered .... here I was unfortunately very disappointed!
The more positive and enthusiastic I am from the ILG list, where detailed operating modes have been maintained ... so please continue!
Unfortunately, it is always such a thing with the gratitude of the general public, criticized quickly, thanked rather less .... in this sense ....
keep up the work, good job!  E-Mail of 18th July 2018 by Jose
Thank you very much for your efforts contributions.  E-Mail of 14th July 2018 by James
I just wanted to respond to your recent message. Firstly, let me state that ILGRadio is - by far the best and most comprehensive
shortwave database. I can actually say that is an expert opinion as, for many years, I developed a logging program called (not too creatively)
Shortwave Log that imports and organizes around 10 databases. I still keep my program up-to-date for myself, although I pulled it from
the Internet a few years ago. ILGRadio has the most accurate data, period. It's a great piece of work.Thanks for all of your hard work.
I hope that ILGRadio stays; however, I completely understand if it's not worth your time.  E-Mail of 5th July 2018 by Robert
Thank you for your file updates etc. You are very efficient at keeping things up to date. I have now manged to get all my programs working
at the moment, so am happy with all.  E-Mail of 4th June 2018 by Eddy
 I confirm receiving the new access data for the ILG Database. I'm actively using it as it has proven to be accurate, comprehensive and
regularly updated. For the Database I'm using John Fallow's Ergo4-program, which communicates with Simon Brown's SDR Console-program
via virtual USB-port. This installation has been working perfectly and effectively. Thanks and 73 !  E-Mail of 18th April 2018 by Jouni

Hi, just ordered new again. SUPER WORK. In the past I used various alternatives with less value because not up-to-date.
e.g. EIBI, AOKI, Klingenfuss. ILGRadio beats them all for a resonable price. Continue your great work!   E-Mail of 30th October 2017 by Mike
at the start of the new season everything available with the new times and frequencies, others like
EIBI and AOKI are the total failure  E-Mail of 31st October 2017 by E-Mail of 30th October 2017 by Walter

Gleichzeitig möchte ich Ihnen für Ihre grosse Arbeit danken Schönes Weekend E-Mail of 10th March 2017 by Alexandra
Thanks for making all your hard work available to the public!  E-Mail of 5th March 2017 by David
This past weekend I learned that ILGRadio is now available again to the general public.  It's now a pay database, at 10 Euros for one
season or 15 Euros for two seasons.  I bought the two-season option, and it's well worth it!  The database is available in three variants...
The amount of data is amazing.  I attempted for a season or two to compile a database, and it's a huge endeavor.  Given that ILGRadio
is easily orders of magnitude larger and more detailed than Prime Time Shortwave, AOKI, ADDX, and even EIBI, it's well worth the cost.
ILGRadio is rightly particular about their data.  If you have a shortwave logging program or know enough to import a dBASE file into
Access, SQL Server Express, or LibreOffice Base, go and get the ILGRadio database.  It's simply amazing.  Posted 7th July 2015 by N3OEA
I subscribe to the ILG database. I have found it to be comprehensive and free from errors... Posted 12 May 2016 by Elwood
