Most Common Frequency Range?
« on: October 26, 2013, 0227 UTC »
I know that Numbers Stations pop up everywhere. Has anyone ever created a chart of the most popular frequency ranges and time periods. I remember the column by Havana Moon from years ago, and heard about that person passing (Can't think of his name). Did he ever create freq. / time analysis, of broadcasts?

Hello group-

Here is an old program we use for hf propagation paths between two locations called "VOA Prop".. Right click in the map window to set your location.  The drop down chart will help with operating (or swl receive) prediction time and frequency.

The example here shows path predictions between England and Alaska. You can switch between the amateur and SW bands.
