Research of the 7 MHz spectrum during the Melbourne pre-sunrise window has revealed a large number of unoccupied channels in the period 1830 to 1900.
This has been due to the closure of many IBB services in this time period, including VOA, RFE/RL and RFA, which had used frequencies in this band.
There are more vacant channels than active ones!
This is a summary of what the band looked like on August 28 2014 in the time span 1830 to 1900.
