HF Broadcast Schedules

Hi,

Whilst obtaining the data to answer Ron's question regarding DRM broadcasts, it got me thinking.........

There is a very comprehensive list of HF broadcast schedules listed at http://www.hfcc.org/data/b17/

I wonder how feasible it would be to parse this and populate a DX.json file (or similar) of broadcast stations from this information ? The DX tags could then change according to time date and BC schedule a bit like the IBP tags.

The transmission schedules change with seasons, so this could be updated as and when required.

Regards,

  • It's buried in the bug list, but there is an entry that says:
    • Use info from public databases, e.g. shortwave broadcast schedules (EiBi) 
    I have seen the hfcc.org list. I looked at some others too, but a lot of them have restrictions on re-publication. It's not clear exactly what that means in the context of dynamic access by Kiwi code as opposed to re-publication in their entirety. Would probably have to negotiate with the authors about that issue. For example WebSDR has this.

  • Hi John,

    Ooops, sorry I missed that one when I browsed the list.
