Frequency Bands RNAV

This topic relies on your knowledge of the above table and (possibly) your ability to convert a wavelength to a frequency.

The bands may be remembered in order by the mnemonic “Very Lonely Maidens Have Very Unusual Sewing Equipment.”

The frequencies may be remembered by knowing that VLFVLF —Very Low Frequency starts at 3 kHz and that the start of each subsequent band increases by a factor of 10. So, for example, LFLF —Low Frequency starts at 3 kHz x 10 = 30 kHz.

The obvious mistake when answering these questions is getting the prefixes (e.g. mega and giga) confused.
