CIRAF Zones

Following are CIRAF ZONES, used by the IFRB (International Frequency Registration Board) and a number of international broadcasters to specify intended audience areas for broadcasts. These are the zones quoted, for example, in the BBC schedules and on the FCC HF Bureau Web pages. Our appreciation goes to Dan Ferguson (CompuServe ID: 76702,771) for compiling and making this list available to radio hobbyists.
