Molecular spectral lines have provided information about interstellar clouds for six and a half decades. Here we consider results of spectral line surveys made with the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope over the frequency range 455.1 to 507.4 Ghz. The targets of the surveys are the Orion core and the Galactic centre.
