ITALY ON MEDIUM WAVES

by Antonello Napolitano.

Welcome to this first edition of “List of private MW stations in Italy”. Unlike other lists 
that you can find over the Internet, this publication only lists stations currently on the air 
or temporarily off-air. 

Also included is information on how to contact the stations (E-mail and Web sites), QSL policies 
and when known transmitter powers and future plans.

I have compiled this list by assembling information received directly from the stations and my 
own research. I have done my best to keep mistakes to a minimum. Feedback from DXers with 
corrections and/or comments on the usefulness of this publication are always welcome.

The majority of Italian MW stations are modest affairs, with limited technical know-how, small 
budgets and few trained personnel. These factors result in a lack of definitive information that 
is standard in most other countries of the world.

Solid data on hours of transmission, programmes, frequencies, and contacts are difficult to obtain 
because station practices themselves change often.  

Transmitters are often homemade, limited to a power output in the range of 20-100 watts and 
connected to very simple antennas, so reception is generally restricted to city limits.

Another point to be mentioned is the fact that frequencies sometimes change, and new ones or 
old ones appear or reappear. 

With a few exceptions, most stations go on the air during weekends and/or the frequencies rarely 
tend to be used all the day.

Last but not least: most stations operate from the North of Italy (especially from the regions 
of Lombardia and Veneto), a few from the central part of the country (Toscana and Emilia Romagna) 
and, after the disappearance of Gold 1593 located in Sicily, virtually none from the South.

In compiling this list I have been helped by the ideas and information from some DXers who have
monitored the frequencies used by the Italian private medium wave stations.

Special thanks to Roberto Scaglione, administrator of Facebook Group onde medie italia 
(www.ondemedieitalia.it) targeted at Medium Wave broadcasters and enthusiasts of Italy.
