I am looking for a software tool or a way to produce in excel, and have been looking for months, for software to be able to produce a wall chart that is similar to this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:United_States_Frequency_Allocations_Chart_2011_-_The_Radio_Spectrum.pdf

The different lines of course cover a wider range of frequencies so what I would like to do is to produce a chart by using each line as a different graphic and then pasting these into a graphics tool and printing the wall chart after getting all the charts lined up.

Please help in my search

I work for the US Army as a spectrum manager and want to produce a chart like this for our local area.

Thanks

Kenneth Johnson
