Skywave Schedules is primarily designed for use with portable shortwave radios, allowing you to easily find shortwave broadcast or utility stations by listing their frequency and broadcast times.
Stations can be searched using Broadcast, Utility or both types.
You can now listen to stations direct from the Schedules using an internet/data connected phone thanks to KiwiSDR and WebSDR.
The shortwave schedule broadcast seasons change at the end of March (to Season ‘A’) and October (to Season ‘B’) which can result in inaccurate listings being displayed until broadcasters publish their broadcast schedules or listeners locate what frequencies have changed. Use the Download ‘Schedules’ option in the apps settings to ensure you have the latest schedules. The app should check on startup for any updates to the schedules, this ensures you have the latest schedules installed. The app author is not responsible for accuracy of schedules, please consider this if you review the app.
