-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Many thanks go to Andy Vadasz and Peter Soltesz, who compiled much of the information shown here. This file is being maintained at the archive <http://www.hix.com/hungarian-faq/HU-broadcast.txt>. A similar compendium is also available from the HAL archives <ftp://mineral.umd.edu/pub/hungary/docs/North_Am_Hun_Language_Broadcasts> <http://mineral.umd.edu/hungary/ftp/docs/North_Am_Hun_Language_Broadcasts>, with more related material under <http://mineral.umd.edu/hir/Entertainment/>. The programme by the Radio Petofi is available real-time simulcast via the Internet (the first such national broadcast according to them): <http://www.petofi.enet.hu/reala.html> (note that this adress is at 'enet.hu', signifying E-NET, which is distinct from 'eunet.hu' where some other resources are to be found). That page has all the information needed to get the sofware handling the 'realaudio' format, or one can go straight to the source at <http://www.realaudio.com>. Realaudio format recorded broadcast segments for some HungarianRadio programmes are available thru <http://www.wrn.org/stations/hungary.html>. The homepage for Radio Budapest (the external service of Hungarian Radio) is at <http://www.eunet.hu/radio/> - they have a lot of textual information, including schedules and frequency tables for worldwide broadcast. Computer-readable Hungarian language broadcast material from the Voice of America is found under <http://www.voa.gov/programs/audio/>; they have other computer audio file formats for download beside realaudio as well. Here is a listing of Hungarian language broadcasts (as of 28 May 1996), collected by Peter Soltesz <mailto:pasoltes@CapAccess.org>. Note that the Hungarian language broadcast of the Radio Free Europe (which was shown in the original version I posted) has been discontinued sometime in '95! Also, the Voice of America beam is transmitted from outside America and can't be received there (despite the earlier listing showing them with their nominal Washington, D.C. location). However their Web server makes computer-readable recordings available, as shown in the paragraph above. I dropped the VOA entries from here - for the full schedules see <gopher://gopher.voa.gov/00/voa-sked/hungarian-pgms> and for all the frequencies <gopher://gopher.voa.gov/00/voa-sked/langs-and-freqs> (these files can be accessed thru <http://www.voa.gov> as well as from <ftp://ftp.voa.gov/>). <<< Text version of database file follows: >>> ID, Type, FREQ, City, ST, PROG, DAY, Time, Address, Tel, Fax KTYM , AM ,, INGLEWOOD , CA ,1,,,,, WVOF , FM ,, FAIRFIELD , CT ,2,,,,, WNDU , AM ,, SOUTH BEND , IN ,1,,,,, WSBT , AM ,, SOUTH BEND , IN ,1,,,,, WRSU , FM ,, NEW BRUNSWICK , NJ ,1,,,,, WCSB , FM ,, CLEVELAND , OH ,1,,,,, WKTX , AM ,, CORTLAND , OH ,12,,,,, WKTL , FM ,, STRUTHERS , OH ,1,,,,, WELW , AM ,, WILLOUGHBY-EASTLAKE , OH ,1,,,,, WIBF , FM ,, JENKINTOWN , PA ,1,,,,, WMZK , AM , 680 , DETROIT , MI ,1, FRI , 2100-2200 ,,, WNYE , TV , 25 , NEW YORK , NY ,0.5, SAT , 1500-1530 ,,, TCI , CABLE ,, WESTCHESTER County , NY ,,,,,, , AM , 1380 , NEW YORK , NY ,1, SUN , 1200-1300 ,,, WQRP , FM ,, DAYTON , OH ,3, SUN , 0900-1200 ,,, WNVC , TV , 56 , FALLS CHURCH , VA ,0.5, SAT , 0800-0830 ,, 1-703-698-9682 , CKJS , AM , 810 , WINNIPEG, MANITOBA , CN ,0.5, SAT , 2000-2030 ,, 1-204-477-1221 , , FM , 105.9 , NEW YORK , NY ,2, SUN , 1200-1400 ,,, , SW , 25 m ,, PA ,0.25, TH , 1645-1700 ,,, TELSTAR , SAT , 22 ,, NA ,,,,,, GALAXY-4 , SAT , 23 ,, NA ,0.5, M-F , 1930-200 ,,, GALAXY-4 , SAT , 23 ,, NA ,0.5, SAT , 1730-1800 ,,, ASC-1 , SAT , 23 ,, NA ,0,,,,, VATICANA , SW ,,, IT ,0,,,,, CBN , SAT ,,, NA ,0,,,,, CBC , SW ,, TORONTO , CD ,,,,,, BBC , SW ,, LONDON , UK ,,,,,, , SW , 3250 , BIRMINGHAM , AL ,1, D , 0700-0755 ,,, ,, 830 , CLEVELAND , OH ,,,,,, MAGYAR RA. , SW , VARIES , BUDAPEST , HU ,0, D ,,,, BUDAPEST , SW , VARIES , BUDAPEST , HU ,0, D ,,,, DEUTSCHE W , SW ,,, GE ,0,,,,, WCPN , FM , 90.3 , CLEVELAND , OH ,1,,,,, <<< end of database listing >>> Andy Vadasz <mailto:avadasz@mnsinc.com> posted the following: +In a May 14 message, I reported (in part): + +> their current 9870 kHz will change to 9840 kHz starting May.21.
