I've wondered for a while now why the bands are named what they are. For instance, we have the 20m band, but most of the frequencies are actually 21 meters. 300 / 14 = 21.4 meters, and 300 / 14.35 = 20.9 meters
Likewise, 15 meters are actually all in the 14 meter segment.
Does anyone have some history on why they are named what they are?
