What radio stations are on MW?

What radio stations are on MW?

The term AM is commonly used to cover both Medium Wave (MW) and Long Wave (LW). All AM radio stations broadcast in mono. The BBC broadcasts various radio services on AM, including Radio 5 Live and many local and nations radio services. It only broadcasts Radio 4 on LW.

Does MW radio still exist?

Medium wave (MW) is the part of the medium frequency (MF) radio band used mainly for AM radio broadcasting. The spectrum provides about 120 channels with limited sound quality. During daytime, only local stations can be received. Many countries in Europe have switched off their MW transmitters since the 2010s.

What are the radio frequencies for 2m radio?

In particular, the 2M band extends from 144 MHz to 148 MHz. The FCC Rules say that any mode (FM, AM, SSB, CW, etc.) can be used on the band from 144.100 to 148.000 MHz. The FCC has restricted 144.0 to 144.100 MHz to CW operation only. Knowing the FCC frequency authorizations is a good start but we need to check a bit further.

What kind of radio can I use with 2 meters?

Radio amateurs also use 2 meters for OSCAR (Orbiting Satellite Carrying Amateur Radio) operation, sending signals to a satellite (uplink) or receiving signals from the satellite (downlink). The OSCAR segments don’t specify a particular modulation type since CW, SSB and FM are all used for OSCAR operation.

Can a 2m signal be wiped out by a FM signal?

If a local FM operator fires up in the EME portion of the band, an EME signal that can’t be heard by an FM receiver can be wiped out by the FM signal. Similarly, an operator chatting across town on 2M could interfere with a satellite hundreds of miles away and not know it.
