NDB - NON DIRECTIONAL BEACONS
Australian aviation non-directional beacon Frequencies

Australian aviation non-directional beacon Frequencies are from 200kHz to 490kHz and represent a useful source for studying LF and lower MF band propagation and for refining receiving systems on and around these bands 

An NDB or Non-Directional Beacon is a ground-based, low frequency radio transmitter used as an instrument approach for airports and offshore platforms.
 
The NDB transmits an omni-directional signal that is received by the ADF or Automatic Direction Finder, a standard instrument onboard aircraft.  The pilot uses the ADF to determine the direction to the NDB relative to the aircraft. 

Below is a list of Australian non-directional beacon Frequencies sorted by frequency.
