Got a map?

NOAA eastern composite

I often use NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts as propagation beacons.

I listen and note which weather stations are coming in from far away places.

From these observations, I can tell where my own signals might be heard

when operating my ham radios on 2 meters (144 to 148 MHz)

just above the FM broadcast band (88 to 108 MHZ  – and –

just below where weather radio broadcasts take place (162 MHz)

I began with a nationwide map of NOAA weather radio stations that you can find at:

and edited it into a handy 8 X 10 printable form

for use by DXers on the East Coast of The United States.

Feel free to distribute it and print it as you like!
