In an earlier message I mentioned that VOA used to conduct a monitoring 
program in order to assess the quality of its signals in various parts of 
the world and verify the accuracy of VOACAP predictions.  Turns out they 
still do.

In some instances, such monitoring involves medium-wave signals that are 
below the accurate frequency range of VOACAP, but the majority of 
monitoring appears to be in the SW range.

The International Broadcasting Board (the parent of VOA, RFA and other 
services, maintains a fascinating web site at
which explains the philosophy behind the program.  It also offers the 
opportunity to hear how broadcasts from any number of SW broadcasting 
services (not just VOA) sounded in almost real time in 80-odd cities around 
the world.

Thanks to Bill Whitacre of IBB for turning me on to this.
