SWL in the modern era

Back in the day, a short wave radio with a decent antenna was needed if you wanted to listen to foreign broadcast stations. Now all you need is a computer connected to the I’net. Radio Garden provides a globe you can scroll with green dots for radio stations. Click on a green dot or scroll the crosshairs on one and you can listed to that station.

Note that it appears that this is FM stations only and the audio comes from the station website. So it’s a mashup of a google earth display and an FM radio station database.

See TRE for information about the  Radio Garden.
