Shortwave Schedule Explanation For New Amateur Operators / SWL's

If you are new to the world of radio, welcome! It doesn't matter if you're a newly licensed Amateur Operator or a brand new SWL, getting accustomed to the deep culture of radio and how it all works is both intriguing and frustrating. Most radio newbies like to just sit back and listen. Listening is just the thing to do right now, because there's alot to hear and learn about!

First, let's start by reminding those of you who are new that each different frequency wavelength has it's own behavior during each different time of day, night, and season. This means that one band will be more useful than the other during the day, during the night, and during each of the four seasons.

The ITU (International Telecommunications Union) has two main HF broadcast schedules a year.  The "A" season starts the last Sunday in March, the "B" season starts the last Sunday in October.  Those dates coincide with the European time changes.

For a beginner's guide to tuning the bands, see the Amateur Radio Band Characteristics by Hamuniverse. Because the shortwave bands are both just below and above the amateur frequencies, this information applies to these portions of the band as well. AM band DX listening is best during the winter season.
