FREQUENCY SPECIFICATIONS: Partially rounded to 0,1MHz. Some frequency blocks have been combined into one bigger block.
ABBREVIATION: Partially internationally accepted labels or specific abbreviations used by the "Autoident" feature of Aaronia SPECTRAN spectrum analyzers / electrosmog detectors
TRANSMITTING POWER: Maximum permitted or regular transmitting power
RANGE: Always indicated the maximum or average USABLE distance, not the maximum MEASURABLE distance
MODULATION: Where "various" is indicated, use of modulation modes varies widely
PULSING: Where "YES" is indicated, pulsing might be used only intermittently, in specific modes, or by specific devices.
PROVIDER: Typical provider. Either the name of the company, or "private" is indicated for mainly non-commercial use. "commercial" is indicated for mainly commercial use, "aerial" for mainly aerial radio, "military" = mainly military use
DESCRIPTION: Detailed description, often with application examples
(UL): "Uplink" mostly means "handheld device" (portable transmitter which transmits towards a tower, like mobile phones)
(DL): "Downlink" mostly means "base station" (fixed transmitter which transmits towards portable devices, like cell towers)
MW=Megawatts=1.000.000Watts; kW=Kilowatts=1.000Watts; W=Watts; mW=Milliwatts=0,001Watts
