[ptsw] WWII Freqs

Charles J. Hargrove

The story goes that a ham in Scituate, Massachussetts heard Rommel's
tanks on the 10 meter band and recorded it on a wire recorder. He
brought it to a friend to translate. When they realized what they
had in their hands, the feds got involved and set up a monitoring station
in the area.

Does anyone know what meter band the planes of the Axis and Allies used
during the second world war? I have not seen any information on this. I
thought I had read somewhere that a person in North Carolina or somewhere
the South East coast was able to hear transmissions from North Africa of
General Rommel during the campaign battles there.
