    Re: SW Radio

    I carry a Sony SW radio Digital Tuning thing, trouble is more and more SW is getting turned off and Sat Radio is not cheap and not properly world wide (regions and the likes)

    They work better on battery as the ships electrical system / the transformer add quite a bit of noise into the system (which I have never solved)

    Will be absolutely fine, hang a long piece of wire out of the cabin. When I was a cadet on general cargo trampers I used a SW radio. Also unlocked the MF/HF set so that I could use it on the Ham Radio Bands for Maritime Mobile (as a radio enthusiast)

    Re: SW Radio

    I have been looking into this recently.

    SW might be more resilient to man-made EMC interference at sea, but may suffer from atmospheric interference, from thunderstorms, and things like how overcast it is, or how active the sun is.
    Reception can also vary with day or night, and with the seasons.

    Signal should travel well across the sea in theory.

    Hi Guys,

    Not sure if i've posted this in the right section, so feel free to move if you wish!

    Considering taking a small SW radio with me on my next trip I'm offshore, so likely to be Irish Sea or possibly North. Does anyone have any experience of signal/interference problems on a boat?


    thanks,
