Shortwave

Listening to shortwave requires a specialist shortwave radio. We direct our broadcasts at peak listening times in our target areas of Asia and the Pacific using multiple frequencies. We recommend that where possible, you use an outside antenna to improve reception. Shortwave signals may be subject to interference from other broadcasters' signals, electronic devices such as computers, microwave ovens, TVs, car engines and fluorescent lights.
