About Us
Guerilla announcer on Mexico's Radio Insurgente, circa 2004ClandestineRadio.com is the only online portal dedicated to the study of clandestine and subversive radio - a field where politics, diplomacy, espionage and broadcast media collide. Clandestine broadcasting is a highly effective weapon in the arsenal of psychological warfare, which, when analyzed, can assist observers to cut through the fog of war and ascertain the strength and capabilities of opposition groups as well as actual on-the-ground military strategies. For the casual Web surfer this site may seem exotic and, at times, conspiratorial. Regular and "professional" users, however, will find an intelligence bonanza.

Al Qaeda newscast video, Voice of the Caliphate, circa 2005Launched in 1996 ClandestineRadio.com has developed into a resource regularly used by radio monitors, academics and historians, journalists, and military and intelligence analysts to track psywar developments across the globe. We have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, US News & World Report, and on BBC, Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, CBC, and numerous international media outlets. Issues of our bi-weekly Clandestine Radio Watch reports are included in the digital archives of the U.S. Library of Congress, and Washington, DC's Newseum, which re-opens in 2006, will feature excerpts of our sound library in its permanent exhibits. Global Crisis Watch, our news podcast, launched in May 2005.
