FAQs

What is medium wave and shortwave? ›

Shortwave radio received its name because the wavelengths in this band are shorter than 200 m (1,500 kHz) which marked the original upper limit of the medium frequency band first used for radio communications. The broadcast medium wave band now extends above the 200 m / 1,500 kHz limit.

What are the frequency ranges for LW MW and SW? ›

Short wave (SW): Wavelengths of 10-200m hence frequencies of 1.5-33 MHz; there are several sub-bands. Medium wave (MW): Wavelengths of 200-1000m hence frequencies of 300 kHz-1.5 MHz. Long wave (LW): Wavelengths > 1000m hence frequencies < 300 kHz.

Is FM a medium wave? ›

Medium wave (MW) signals are transmitted using amplitude modulation (AM) and the terms are used interchangeably. FM signals are mostly transmitted in the very high frequency (VHF) or ultra high frequency (UHF) bands and are used for voice (radio) as well as video (TV) broadcasting.

Is shortwave AM or FM? ›

And most shortwave (SW) broadcasting is still AM. AM radio is talk radio, that is, news, weather, traffic, sports and opinion. There are still some AM music stations around but mostly the music moved to FM.

What is AM FM SW MW? ›

SW = Short Wave; SW is used for “FM” Radio channels. MW =Medium Wave; MW is used for “AM” Radio channels. SW / AM or amplitude modulation (started commercially in 1920) is used for long distance transmission, mainly for national radio channels, the sound quality of AM radio channels are more prone to interference.

What wave is FM? ›

FM radio ranges in a higher spectrum from 88 to 108 MHz. (OR) 1200 to 2400 bits per second. Twice the highest modulating frequency. In AM radio broadcasting, the modulating signal has bandwidth of 15kHz, and hence the bandwidth of an amplitude-modulated signal is 30kHz.

What are the best shortwave radio stations? ›

  • #1: World Music Radio.
  • #2: Vatican Radio (Radio Vaticana)
  • #3: Radio Free Asia (RFA)
  • #4: Voice of America (VOA)

What frequency is medium wave? ›

Medium frequency (MF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies (RF) in the range of 300 kilohertz (kHz) to 3 megahertz (MHz). Part of this band is the medium wave (MW) AM broadcast band. The MF band is also known as the hectometer band as the wavelengths range from ten to one hectometer (1000 to 100 m).

How do I find shortwave stations? ›

The most intuitive free online resource for shortwave schedules is ShortwaveSchedule.com. You can look up broadcast schedules by station, frequency or what is currently on the air.

What is shortwave radio used for? ›

Over the years, people have relied on shortwave radio for broadcasting voice and news to listeners over massive areas – even spanning continents. Other uses include over-the-horizon radar, two-way international communication, and diplomatic communication.

Who uses shortwave radio? ›

At the moment the major shortwave broadcasters are BBC, Voice of America, All India Radio, China Radio International, Radio Japan, Radio Romania, KBS Korea and Voice of Turkey and many more. Twenty years after the first big blow to shortwave, this frequency band and its potential is being revisited.

What's a medium wave? ›

What is a medium in waves Examples? ›

A medium is the substance through which a wave can propagate. Water is the medium of ocean waves. Air is the medium through which we hear sound waves. The electric and magnetic fields are the medium of light.

What are AM and FM radio waves? ›

The difference is in how the carrier wave is modulated, or altered. With AM radio, the amplitude, or overall strength, of the signal is varied to incorporate the sound information. With FM, the frequency (the number of times each second that the current changes direction) of the carrier signal is varied.

What FM means? ›

: a system for sending radio signals in which the number of radio waves per second is changed in order to send information in the form of sound. ◊ FM is an abbreviation of “frequency modulation.”

Which antenna is used for medium wave band in AM receiver? ›

By far the most common antenna for broadcast reception is the ferrite-rod antenna, also known as a loopstick antenna.

How do I listen to shortwave radio? ›

How does an FM radio work? ›

When the frequency is modulated between low and high, the carrier frequency is transmitting music or voice. Only the frequency changes as a result. The amplitude remains constant the entire time. FM radio operates in the 87.5 MHz to 108.0 MHz range, a higher frequency range than AM radio.

How far do FM radio signals travel? ›

In contrast, the wavelengths of FM radio signals are much shorter. i.e., approximately 3 meters (10 feet). Because of their much shorter wavelengths, FM signals are not significantly reflected by the ionosphere.

How do we pick radio signals? ›

The receiver's tuner picks out a specific signal. Its amplifier strengthens that signal. A demodulator separates the signal from the carrier wave. And then a speaker converts the signal to the sound waves that you hear!

What are medium waves? ›

a radio wave with a wavelength between 100 and 1000 metres.

What is medium wave in communication? ›

Medium wave (MW) is the part of the medium frequency (MF) radio band used mainly for AM radio broadcasting. The spectrum provides about 120 channels with more limited sound quality than FM stations on the FM broadcast band.

What is medium wave frequency? ›

Medium frequency (MF) is the ITU designation for radio frequencies (RF) in the range of 300 kilohertz (kHz) to 3 megahertz (MHz). Part of this band is the medium wave (MW) AM broadcast band. The MF band is also known as the hectometer band as the wavelengths range from ten to one hectometer (1000 to 100 m).

What is the difference between shortwave and longwave? ›

Shortwave radio covers the high-frequency band of the radio spectrum. Shortwave uses the “skip” propagation method, where a signal is bounced off of the atmosphere. Longwave radio transmits waves in a straight line, capable of navigating objects and terrain to reach the receiver using low power.

What are 3 types of wave mediums? ›

Categorizing waves on this basis leads to three notable categories: transverse waves, longitudinal waves, and surface waves. A transverse wave is a wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction perpendicular to the direction that the wave moves.

What are 3 examples of a medium? ›

What is an example of a medium wave? ›

One example of a medium is air. Electromagnetic waves, such as visible light and radio waves, move through air, as do sound waves.

Is FM a long wave? ›

Long Wave broadcasting is carried out by stations operating between 153 and 279 KiloHertz, i.e. wavelengths that are greater than 1,000 Metres. These wavelengths travel very long distances and generally use much higher power than medium wave, or FM and DAB.

What shortwave stations can I receive? ›

Other shortwave radio stations US customers might listen to include:
  • KSDA: Adventist world radio: 91.9 MHz.
  • KTWR: Trans world radio: 801: Khz.
  • KVOH: Voice of hope: 6:065 MHz.
  • WBCQ: The Planet: 3.265 MHz.
  • WINB: World International Broadcasting: 9.265 MHz.
  • WTWW: We transmit World Wide: 5.085 MHz.

What is the range of frequency for short wave SW band? ›

shortwave radio, transmission and reception of information by means of electromagnetic waves about 10 to 80 m (33 to 262 feet) in length having frequencies of approximately 29.7 to 3.5 megahertz.

What FM means? ›

: a system for sending radio signals in which the number of radio waves per second is changed in order to send information in the form of sound. ◊ FM is an abbreviation of “frequency modulation.”

How do I listen to shortwave? ›

If you have a shortwave radio receiver of your own, you can use your SDR radio to connect it to your computer and listen in. If you live in an area where there's too much interference to use traditional shortwave radio, you can also tune in and listen through someone with a server.

How many shortwave bands are there? ›

International broadcast bands
BandFrequency range (MHz)
120 m2.3–2.495
90 m3.2–3.4
75 m3.9–4
60 m4.75–4.995

What frequency is long wave? ›

They can occupy any frequency in the range 190–1750 kHz. In North America, they occupy 190–535 kHz.

What is another name for longwave? ›

Long waves, also called infragravity waves, have a wave period of 30 seconds to several minutes. Astronomical tides represent one important example of long waves.

How does a short wave radio work? ›

Radio waves within the shortwave band reflect from a layer of the atmosphere named the ionosphere. Short waves direct at an angle into the sky can reflect back to earth at massive distances, often going beyond the horizon. This makes shortwave radio an excellent choice for long-distance communication.
