For better or for worse, some (many?) of these contour maps show the
subclades as a percentage of R1b or R1b1b2.

Therefore, by definition, areas where R-U106 (for example) is less
frequent are areas where some other clade(s) of R1b must be more

The frequency maps I made were done several years ago, and sometimes
with very small numbers of haplotypes. It is exceedingly difficult to
find enough data on DeepClade tests, because almost no FTDNA projects
report out the complete SNP results by participant. So you never know
who was negative for a marker and who just wasn't tested for it.

I have proposed several different easily implemented solutions to
FTDNA over the years but their IT resources always seem to be assigned
