I have recently begun decoding NAVTEX on 518 kHz. Do NAVTEX transmissions always originate from only one site at a time?

For example, according to this schedule:
NAVTEX

...Honolulu transmits at 0220 UTC. Is the NAVTEX signal I hear at that time only originating from Honolulu?

I think they are indeed coordinated to a degree, altho how that happens I don't know. I do know that every station is given a certain time limit on each frequency to complete their transmissions, so that does minimize the possibility of QRM.

By the way we have a number of other sites with NAVTEX and SITOR-B (the mode which NAVTEX is based) information here...

That's what I'm thinking too. Thanks Mike.

BTW, that's a nice page you put together...it partially inspired me to finally get going on my NAVTEX setup, which is something I've been wanting to do for a long time.
