Radio Austria expands Shortwave Transmissions

Radio Austria expanded its German-language broadcasts on March 1.

The morning program runs from 06:00 to 07:20 UTC from Monday through Friday and from 06:00 to 07:10 on Saturdays and Sundays, on 6155 kHz.

The two newly-added programs run from 11:00 UTC to 12:00 UTC on 13730 kHz (Monday through Sunday) and from 17:00 to 17:25 on 5940 kHz (only Monday through Friday).

It appears that the transmitters work omni-directionally, as Austrian radio says that the programs can be heard all over Europe, including Ukraine.

Their press relase also points out that shortwave remains available for listeners even if mobile-phone networks and other communications don’t work anymore.

  1. Living in Germany, but near to Austria, we are in reach of almost all offers of austrian ORF, radio and TV. And I do recommend them!

  2. I absolutely agree. I listen to their morning broadcasts at least once a week, and would do so daily if they started earlier in the morning. Swiss Radio is also a good source of info, on 6005 kHz shortwave every day (via a small rebroadcaster in the Eifel), with their info program “Rendez-vous” at noon, 12:31 MEZ.
