We analyse the behavior of the asymptotic frequencies of the spherically symmetric multi-horizon spacetimes (in particular Reissner-Nordström, Schwarzschild-deSitter, Reissner-Nordström-deSitter) and provide some suggestions for how to interpret the results following the spirit of the modified Hod’s conjecture. The interpretation suggested is in some sense analogical to the Schwarzschild case, but has some new specific features.
