Shortwave Broadcast Schedules
By Black Cat Systems
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Are you a shortwave radio listener (SWL) in need of an up to date set of schedules for international broadcast stations? Shortwave Broadcast Schedules is a handy app that displays broadcast schedules of about 11,000 longwave, mediumwave, and shortwave broadcast stations.
The stations are initially listed in order by frequency. You can tap a button to see which stations are on the air right now, as well as search for stations by name, frequency, time of day that they are on, or select by language, target area, or country of origin.
Stations currently on the air are displayed in bold, making it quick and easy to see which stations are on right now.
You can keep track of favorite stations, as well as set reminders for favorite broadcasts, so you’ll never forget about a transmission again.
Tap on a station to bring up more information about the station, such as the country of origin, target area, and programming language.
When viewing the details for a station, you can tap on the frequency, country, target, or language to get a list of all other stations with that matching value. You can also tap on Schedule to see all of the transmissions throughout the day for this station.
Updated schedules can be downloaded for free.

Get your copy of Shortwave Broadcast Schedules, and never miss listening to another of your favorite stations again.
Note: A shortwave radio is required to listen to the broadcasts.
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Bug fixes for iOS 7.
I Use It Constantly
Works great using an iPad 3 with iOS 9.0.1. I love listening to shortwave, and if you're gonna do that, you absolutely have to have a "TV Guide" handy to figure out what's on. This app really fills the bill. I love the "On Now" button... It really helps you to narrow down and figure out what you've found while DXing. Also great is the ability to search using multiple criteria. If you wanted to know what's on now in English (for example), you can! Since I've gotten the app, database updates seem to happen at least several times a month... Much better than having to rummage through supplements like with printed guides (works offline too). Other DXers wonder how I solve their mystery finds so quickly... This is how. A wonderful app, and well worth the modest cost.
I love to listen to shortwave radio and the program schedules change very often and there are just way too many to remember. With this well designed app I can pull up an up to the minute schedule of all programming around the world. It is great to choose only programs in English or any language I prefer. I can even choose to display the broadcast country of origin or the target area for the broadcast in seconds. No DXer or shortwave listener should be without this remarkable app. It has has added so much substance to my ability to utilize my shortwave. And it's cheap too! Can't wait to see what Black Cat comes up with next.
Great SWDX Tool!!
I've been using this app for at least two years now (can't remember the exact date I downloaded it).
The best feature is its portability! I always have my iPhone with me, so just a few key clicks provides me with a list of SW stations that are currently broadcasting.
I like the display format - easy to read columns, each entry hyperlinked to info about the station of interest.
Easy to update, the station list provides almost instant access to schedules, target areas, broadcast languages, etc. Goodbye to bulky notebooks and clipboards with hard-to-read scribbled paper notes!
If only it would stream the broadcast audio when you click on a station listing!! Well, one can dream, right?
There's a version of the app for my Kindle Fire HD 8.9, too!
You will not regret downloading and using this app!
73 & Good DX!
