The Shortwave Radio Audio Archive

The Radio Heritage Foundation is happy to provide a mirror of this fascinating audio archive site.

The Shortwave Radio Audio Archive is a podcast that contains off-air recordings from the shortwaves. These recordings represent the wide variety of stations found on the shortwave, long wave and medium wave radio spectrums (30-30,000 kHz)

We are providing this mirror as a backup service. There are much better descriptions of the recordings in the Archive itself at https://shortwavearchive.com/ and we encourage you to visit and contribute there.
