SHORTWAVESITES  The Groups.io venue where DXers investigate transmitter sites

WANTED: Information regarding currently in use Shortwave TXer Sites


Currently missing from our database are the geo-coordinates of the following operational (or inactive)  shortwave transmitter sites. Can you help us locate the exact & definite coordinates (accurate to Degrees, Minutes & Seconds of latitude/longitude) of the following shortwave transmitter sites?

Resources such as Google Earth, Google Maps & FlashEarth are terrific tools to assist with the location of such sites.

An example of a shortwave transmitter site coordinate would be:  39 57 28N 03 25 50W  If you enter these coordinates into Google Earth the Noblejas shortwave transmitter site of Radio Exterior de Espania would be revealed.
