Maybe they didn't pay fees to Airservices for advertisements in ERSA ?
In-flight bluetooth streaming is the way to go.

For exam purposes, HF area frequencies are in PCA.

No it wouldn’t have been anything to do with advertising as all the Usable ADF commercial radio stations with the coordinates used to be published in Ersa For all the states.Cause you will need the coordinates of that station cheers mark

Where does it say that commercial radio stations could/should be used for purpose of navigation or flight planning ?

Commercial radio stations positions were never "a source of navigation".

As per AIP GEN 2.5, radio navigation aids are identified in ERSA FAC section for each location under NAVIGATION AIDS.

On the side note, if you get a question on exam what would you do if you are lost and one of the answers says use commercial radio station from ERSA - that would be an incorrect answer. The correct answer is contact ATC.

The Ersa page is showing lots of warnings and cautions, including broadcast relays. Imagine tuning into a station, but presenter is announcing a different callsign. Very confusing. On top of it, Lat/Long are listed in old AGD66 datum, so the station is not where it says.

What is "Online aviation theory" ? Looks like some application or a website.

I suggest stick to Aip/Ersa.
