Frequency: This is shown on the radio receiver and is usually shown in Megahertz (MHz).
Mode: Are they using voice; sstv (Slowscan Television); Morse Code; Data… ?
Station Callsign: this identifies the radio station and is usually a series of letters and numbers.
Signal Strength: How well can you hear them? (Weak; medium; strong or very strong).
The start of the callsign (or ‘prefix’) will tell you what country the radio station is in… So for example if you hear a station ‘F6ABC’ the ‘F’ tells us they are in France. Here is a map of Europe, and other maps of the world can be found by clicking here.
