Pardon me while I, unschooled as I am in military/agitprop radio history, join
the fray. My first thought is that in wartime Civilians especially are apt to
be tuning around at odd hours looking for everything and anything out of the
ordinary, trying to gather information about how the war is *really* going. I
cannot comment on the technical feasibility of transmitting radnsomly on
channels normally in use by others, but I think people *would* be listening.
Heck, I listen like this all the time both MWDX and SWBC. I hardly ever
consult a schedule, or beyond a few real staples like BBC on 6175 AM, know who
is supposed to be transmitting what and when.
