    A plot of frequency or spectral content versus a system parameter was introduced in a recent paper by Billings and Boaghe [2001] as a useful alternative to bifurcation diagrams in nonlinear dynamics. The current contribution illustrates the same approach based on data taken from two experimental mechanical systems in which hysteresis is featured
