World Radio TV Handbook consistently sets the radio hobby standards. It remains the best, most authoritative and comprehensive radio reference book in the world; one that should be in every hobbyist listening post or radio room. Quite simply, it is the ultimate guide - one not to be missed --Gayle Van Horn, Monitoring Times

WRTH's claim to be the World's most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to broadcasting is indeed more than justified. At Radio Netherlands Worldwide, we couldn't be without it. If you like listening to radio broadcasts from abroad, neither can you --Radio Netherlands Media Network

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book 26 Mar 2014
By tommyt
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I buy this book every second year as frequencies don't vary too much. A great reference book for anybody into shortwave listening or sending reception reports to stations around the world. The hobby may not be as popular these days as so many radio stations have live internet streaming. The fun of finding obscure stations only at certain times of the day or year is not as hard as it used to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another WRTH - worth the wait! 30 Jan 2014
By J. R. Tow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My first WRTH was ordered from Holland fifty-one years ago - I had just started HS. Yep, I've been a SWL for a while - I still have most of the intervening years WRTHs. This one was nearly as exciting to open up - despite the many international broadcasters who have disappeared from the SW bands recently. This annual has it's share of equipment reviews - including SDRs - 'computer-radios'. If you have an inkling that you might be interested in international - and some national - short wave broadcasting, you need this book - but please insist on the 2014 edition!

3.0 out of 5 stars Essential content, sloppy printing and binding 14 Feb 2014
By K. E. Nollet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Count me as a casual shortwave hobbyist who regards WRTH as an essential reference with useful reviews. My 2014 edition, "Printed and bound in the UK by CPI William Clowes, Beccles NR34 7TL", is poorly printed and bound. Mis-alignment of text and graphics is especially prominent on the glossy color pages (1-64). Many adjacent pages in this first section are still uncut and bound to each other at their upper borders. The content organized by Publisher Nicholas Hardyman and provided by so many enthusiastic contributors deserves better than this.

A complementary publication, Passport to Word Band Radio, ceased shortly after I moved to Japan. Now, my companion to WRTH is a book called 周波数帳 that is published periodically, but not as often as WRTH. It has a more comprehensive listing of Japanese stations, as one might expect.

Here's hoping Mr. Hardyman and colleagues hold CPI William Clowes' feet to the fire so they can do a better job of printing and binding next year. I'll be as eager as ever to get WRTH 2015.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's Just a Book That Gets Published Annually, Then Becomes Out Of Date 3 May 2014
By A. Ebel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's just a book that gets published annually and then becomes out of date. I wish that WRTH would have a database subscription of the frequencies that are on the air though a android app or PC app. The book is good for offline DXing, just hoping that the information is good until the next copy comes out. I was looking at the long wave stations, and Radio Rossii should be removed from the page because they went permanantly off the air in January 2014. And some other stations are going off air too that are in this book. It's only good if you like days of new radio history, but frequencies get on the air and then leave the air according to the internet. I wish that they would add all of the US TV stations in this book since it's a TV handbook, I remember back in 1992 through 1994 they used to have big dish satellite listings which made me be full aware of the satellite stations available. Now it's just TV channels from different countries that require special TV decoding equipment, which is good for a international broadcast engineer more than a DXer. I think this book should be published every 6 months without the television information included, because who needs the TV information unless you're travelling to that country. Now the AM stations in the book are good and fresh, but the short wave and long wave stations, better keep up with that type of information online. The FM stations are good for FM DXer's, but does not include stations from every city which they should make another book for all FM stations some of those stations become out of date from loss of funding, loss of license, license revoked, or natural disaster causes. The verdict is : Make this book as your offline radio reference source and make sure that you get it every year to keep up with the major changes in radio broadcasting. Great book for DXer's, engineers, general radio listening, Hams, pirates, technicians, repair shops, electronic businesses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment if you're into SW Radio 4 Feb 2014
By cdp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is both volumnous and extremely rich in information... almost too much to take in. The only downside is that in North America, SW broadcasts to this region are becoming fewer and fewer. So once I weed out the sites that broadcast religious content, what is left is approximately 50% to 30% of what was listed in total. We're pretty much a dead zone in North America from 08:00 to 11:00 MST (15:00 to 18:00 UTM).

I cross reference mine using a highliter and page markers to show both countries broadcasting in my region in English, and the overall English language broadcasts for each hour through the day.

This is the first time I've purchased this book and am extremely pleased with it. I fully understand why other folks have recommended it so highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy and quick lookup tool 13 Feb 2014
By Daniel E. Markle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the electronic age I was hesitant to purchase a book to look these up. However some stations I am finding on shortwave are not found on the internet, and many of the AM stations are returning obviously inaccurate results on lookups before station breaks. This has proven an excellent and well formatted resource to quickly find any station and in cases of many on the same band, narrow down the search to a few logical choices.

Surprised how much I am enjoying having this in dead tree format, and it's obvious whoever formatted this book actually uses it.
