Unfortunately, this is not always the case with short wave stations. Due to atmospheric
conditions, short wave stations must frequently broadcast on different wavelengths.
Most short wave bands are available all over the world and can be used by international
broadcasters. At present these are the only wavelengths which provide li\

reception over long distances. For this reason, short wave frequencies are not only used by
radio stations, but also by other users such as amateur radio enthusiast\
