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 webmaster 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 fix the problem.
2. Can you send me a list of email addresses for all the radio stations on your list?
We do not maintain an email list. You might try RadioMall, they have a number of different email list products.
3. I submited 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: webmaster.

We hope to be able to do this in the near future. Stay tuned!

No. We have no idea how to reach such people. You might try ham radio operators. Many of them enjoy trying to locate people around the world.

No. We do not have such a list at this time. You might try RadioMall, they have a number of radio database products.

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:
