Re: Identifying obscure languages?

kevin asato

For North American stations (US, Mexico, Canada) i usually do a web lookup of stations transmitting on a particular frequency ( search : 640KHz ) or jump to Wikipedia and search on the frequency. For International stations on 9KHz spacing, i usually do a search on the nearest 9KHz multiple above and below adjacent to the 10KHz frequency i am listening to. If you are in a region where 9KHz is the norm, look up the nearest AM stations on the nearest 10KHz (the Zero-s).
Hope this helps.

Hi all
My next beginners question is, is there a known way of identifying unknown languages please? On a few occasions I’ve come across a couple of fairly close stations which are in languages I don’t understand, and where the digital frequency readout doesn’t help. More often just one station is transmitting and I can’t be sure which it is. I’ve sometimes waited for a program change but then just as they’re about to give the station name it warbles! I’m sure these must be lifelong problems for all, and I’m curious as to solutions.
