Unlike shortwave radio, longwave signals do not reflect or refract using the ionosphere, so there are fewer phase-caused fadeouts.
In Europe, North Africa and Asia, longwaveradio frequencies between 153 and 279 kHz are used for domestic and international broadcasting.
As aerials are usually used: mast antennas which are fed at the bottom and which are insulated against ground, mast antennas fed by the guy ropes (such masts are usually grounded), T-aerials, L-aerials and long wire aerials.
