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 July 2021. While all the data and maps are completed, individual pages take time and effort to organize and create. For now, please see the three lakes that have been added; the remaining scans are soon to come this summer.
Lake Superior Bandscans (20 bandscans / Finishing 7/12/21)
Lake Erie Bandscans (9 bandscans / Completed!)
Lake Ontario Bandscans (9 bandscans / Completed!)
Lake Huron Bandscans (20 bandscans / Under construction)
Lake Michigan Bandscans (24 bandscans / Under construction)
Atlantic Coast Bandscans (6 bandscans / To come later…)
