Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. Why isn't my favorite station on the list?
- We get much of our information from the FCC. Sometimes the FCC doesn't update it's public databases promptly when a station
signs on the air, or changes it's callsign. If you think a station is missing from our website, please write to
to let us know about it. Any details
about the station that you can provide (call sign, frequency, location, website) will make it easier for us to rectify the problem.
- 2. Can you send me a list of email addresses for all the radio stations on your list?
- We do not keep our own email list, but our good friends at Radio Mall can provide you with radio station email lists.
More information can be found here.
- 3. I sent you a URL for a radio station several weeks ago, but it hasn't been updated yet. What's the deal?
- We occasionally get a bit behind with our updates. We try to review every submission within a couple of weeks. If a few weeks go by and your
submission does not appear on our site, please write to the webmaster at: .

type in the name of your city and it will do the rest.
- 5. Can you list my radio show on your list?

- 6. Can you list a radio network on your list?

- 7. Can you list shortwave radio stations on your list?
- No. This site is for "broadcast" radio stations, which in the United States means AM and FM stations only. In Europe and other
parts of the world, the distinction between broadcast stations and shortwave is less clear, so some international shortwave stations may
appear on the site.

on your list?
- No. This site is currently for "terrestrial" broadcast radio stations.
- 9. How do I listen to those stations that are broadcasting their signal on the Internet?
- Look on the station's website. Many of them have basic instructions for how to listen to their streams.

- We hope to be able to do this in the near future. Stay tuned!
- 11. Can you help me? I'm trying to find a friend of mine who a). works at another radio station somewhere,

ham radio operators. Many of them enjoy trying to locate people around the world.

- We have a special Coverage Maps FAQ
to answer questions about our coverage maps.
- 15. Hey! none of your links work!
- Are you looking at the right website? Due to the dynamic nature of the World Wide Web, there will always be a few links that don't
work that we have not yet been able to repair or replace. However, most of them should work without any problems. Be aware, however,
that there are a few individuals out there who have copied our list of radio stations to their own web sites and have since neglected to
update those lists. Some of these sites have not been updated in years, and most of the links on those sites do not work. Stay away
from those sites. The correct URL for this site is: radio-locator.com.
