While radio signals typically propagate over land in a well-studied and expected manner as outlined by broadcasting and engineering models, their propagation over water is far less understood. Over the past 20 years, I have set out to better understand the fashion in which these signals travel over water, including the effect of shoreline orientation, elevated marine inversions, distance, and lake and land breeze circulations. This site, when eventually completed, will delineate this research through maps, experiments, and comparisons.
The included research was accumulated at 80 different radio sites across the Great Lakes region:
This page is actively under construction as of February 2021. New pages are being added as often as possible as maps are completed. While all of these scans have been previously completed, organizing the information and making maps for each takes many hours, weeks, and months.
