Global Radio Guide (Summer 2020) Now Available

During times of emergency and crisis, radio hobbyists worldwide turn on their radios and tune to the shortwave radio spectrum for context, perspective, and insight into what is happening around the globe. As tensions heat up in the world’s hotspots, you can follow these events on radio, and you need an accurate and comprehensive radio guide to hear the action.

Teak Publishing is proud to announce the release of that all-important radio resource – the Global Radio Guide (GRG), 14th edition (Summer 2020) e-book, by Amazon bestselling author Gayle Van Horn, W4GVH. The book was formerly known as the International Shortwave Broadcast Guide.

Teak Publishing co-founder and GRG author, Gayle Van Horn, says that for this 14th edition, they have brought back the popular SDR Buyers’ Guide and expanded their coverage of SDR information, by popular demand.

“Based on the responses from our readers of the 13th edition of the GRG, we have expanded the coverage of SDRs in this 14th edition”, says Van Horn.  “SDRs are truly the future of our hobby and DXers need a source they can trust for information on this booming industry.”

SDR coverage in this edition includes direction-finding HF stations using the SDR.hu network of radios by Mike Chace-Ortiz. Tom Witherspoon takes an AirSpy HF+ Discovery into the field and shows us how we can truly operate a portable receiving station.  There is also an introductory article on Software Defined Radios, an updated SDR buyers guide, and an in-depth equipment review on the new SDRPlay RSPdx SDR.

“The SDR Buyers Guide is unique to our publication and something that readers really responded well to in our last edition,” says Teak Publishing co-found and GRG editor, Larry Van Horn. “The Global Radio Guide is the only place you will find this type of in-depth information on what has become an integral part of the radio monitoring world.”


Beyond SDR information, this Amazon 'electronic' book is your ticket to travel the Global Radio bands. The heart of this publication is a 24-hour station/frequency guide with the latest Summer 2020 schedules for selected AM band, longwave, and shortwave radio stations. This unique resource is the only radio publication that lists by-hour schedules that include all language services, frequencies, and world target areas for over 500 stations worldwide. There are listings of DX radio programs and Internet websites addresses for many of the stations in the book. There are also entries for time and frequency stations and a few other intriguing shortwave radio stations.

The 13th edition of the GRG was widely well-received by readers and reviewers alike.  David Harris of Radio User magazine said of the 13th edition:  “I defy anyone with an interest in SW radio not to find something of interest in this fine publication.”

Now in this 14th edition of the GRG is included an article on monitoring worldwide weather facsimile transmissions on shortwave. The Spectrum Monitor’s Fred Waterer checks in with a feature on summer shortwave radio programming.  This edition also has introductory articles on Traveling the World via Shortwave Radio Broadcasts, Monitoring the Shortwave Action Bands, and a completely updated Teak Hot 1100+ worldwide utility station HF frequency list.

“This truly is a comprehensive guide for any DXer,” Gayle Van Horn says.

“I think the bottom to top coverage of the spectrum is what readers will be most excited about,” says Larry Van Horn. “We have worked very hard, especially on the utility side, to make this edition vastly more comprehensive. HFACARS is a great example as people have wanted to know where they can hear airline activity on HF and this is it.  We have the information on how you can decode these messages  - which run an average of 150,000 messages a day on the network from 80 plus airlines - either on your own SDR or even on Web SDRs, to allow you to track these flights in real-time on HF. 

Global Radio listeners are routinely entertained with unique perspectives to events, music, culture, history, and news from other countries that you will not see or hear on your local or national broadcast channels. Global Radio broadcasts are not restricted by country borders or oceans and can travel thousands of miles, reaching millions of listeners worldwide, now in over 300 different languages and dialects.

Listeners can hear shortwave broadcast stations from China, Cuba, France, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, New Zealand, North/South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam, and many other counties. If you have a shortwave radio receiver or Internet connection, and this unique radio resource, you will know when and where to listen to your favorite radio broadcast station.

This publication will have wide appeal to amateur radio operators, shortwave radio hobbyists, news agencies, news buffs, educators, foreign language students, expatriates, or anyone interested in listening to a global view of world news and major events as they happen.

Whether you monitor shortwave radio broadcasts, amateur radio operators, or aeronautical, maritime, government, or military communications in the HF radio spectrum, this book has the frequencies to help you to hear it all. Teak Publishing’s Global Radio Guide brings the world to you.

You can find this edition of the Global Radio Guide, along with all of our titles currently available for purchase, on the Teak Publishing Web site at www.teakpublishing.com
