It is not necessary to be registered to participate in the contest, send your list of countries ( radio transmitter ) you have listen at the end of the contest in January 2024
This SWL contest is to encourage listening to medium wave and shortwave radios stations all over the world. This SWL contest is open to SWL all over the WORLD.
I thought about organizing this competition. This is only for the FUN, you can use your radio receiver and its also possible to use a WEB or KIWI SDR but the SDR must be always at the same place.
Exemple if you use the Web SDR in Twente Netherlands Europe you must make all your listenings from this web SDR on SW and MW.
If you are from another continent you can choice to use Web SDR in Europe or on another continent
It will be 3 CATEGORIES
First catégorie: Real radio receiver users or you have a SDR on your computer ( not sdr on internet )
Second catégorie: Web or Kiwi SDR online on internet
Third category: you must listen on all shortwave bands a maximum of transmitters, for medium wave no change.
You can listen with a real radio or a SDR on your computer ( not via internet )
You can use a Kiwi SDR or WEB SDR via INTERNET
I decided to add a less simple category where you will have to listen to the maximum number of transmitters on each shortwave band.
Listeners must have a FACEBOOK page.

This SWL contest is open to all listeners in the world.
THE GOAL is to listen to a maximum of countries ( Tranmitters) in the world on MW and SW
MEDIUM WAVE 530 kHz to 1602 kHz
The transmitter is the most important, if radio Voice of America broadcast from Thailand this is VALID for THAILAND countrie, not for USA, after you can listen to a radio who broadcast from USA to Confirme USA.
When you have listen ot a radio with transmitter in a country you dont need to listen again to this country.
One country on medium wave
One country on shortwave
You can listen France on MW and france on SW.
List of countries in the world for SWL
The opérators who listen to the maximum of countries ( the transmitters ) will be the winners.
You must listen to a maximum of countries on Shortwave ( transmitters places ) and you must do the same on Medium Wave, listen to a maximum of countrie ( transmitters places ) on MW
After i will multplie your SW transmitters X by your MW transmitters countries listening.
Exemple you listen to 35 countries on Shortwave X by 20 countries on Medium wave = 700 points
For the third catégorie i will add the numbers of short wave transmitters on all SW band X by transmitters listen on medium wave Exemple 80 vx 25 = 2000 points.
I will send an AWARD to all participants by Facebook messenger.
Please send me the liste of your radios stations listening, you can send only with FACEBOOK messenger.
Make a liste for SW and a liste for MW please
You must send me your lists of countries listening ( transmitters ) on SW and MW before 10 January 2024
YOU MUST GIVE ME THESE INFORMATIONS:
Your facebook name and facebook page ( all communications will be only by FACEBOOK )

"It will be 3 CATEGORIES
FIRST catégorie: Real radio receiver users or you have a SDR on your computer ( not sdr on internet )
SECOND catégorie: Web or Kiwi SDR online on internet
THIRD category: you must listen on all shortwave bands a maximum of transmitters, for medium wave no change.
For this third catégorie you can listen with a real radio or a SDR on your computer ( not via internet )
You can also use a Kiwi SDR or WEB SDR via INTERNET"
When you will send your liste for this categorie send bands by bands for SW, and the medium wave.
Do you use a real radio receiver or a SDR on your computer ( not via internet )
or a Web/kiwi SDR ? If you listen via a Kiwi or Web SDR give me the adresse of this SDR
If you use a real radio receiver yes what is you radio receiver and antenna ?
If you use a kiwi or web SDR give me the link to this kiwi or web SDR. His place, and countrie, continent.
This is not an obligation for the web or kiwi SDR to be on your continent
Exemple you are in Africa, Asia, etc you can use the WEB SDR of Twente Netherlands Europe or other
part of the world
For the MW this is not a problem but for Shortwave many radio stations use relay
Exemple CRI China radio int. use relay in Mali Africa and Cuba.
For me the important thing is the place of the transmitter.
So i you listen to CRI in Mali Africa you have not china. You valid Mali.
To have China you must be sure the tramsmitter is in China.
And if you listen to Mali Africa with CRI you dont need to listen again to radio Mali. Only one country on SW
and same for MW.
Mali is valid only one time.
The goal is to listen more countries ( transmitter ) as possible on SW and also on MW
NO PIRATE or clandestines RADIOS please ( because we dont know where is the transmitter )
Only AM radio on MW and SW ( no amateur radio, ssb or radio in DMR please )
If you listen to a radio station in USA on SW you dont need to listen again a station with transmitter in USA
Same for MW if you listen for exemple Netherlands you can listen only one radio transmitter from this
countrie on MW.
This is not an obligation to send a reception report to the radio station and receive a QSL card.
The goal is not to receive QSL cards in this contest.
I hope the rules are not to difficult to understand ? You can send me a message on my facebook if you have
