at $49 million Pod casting introduced Internet radio valued
at $500 million Technology The radio uses "radio waves"
Radio waves are a part of the electromagnetic spectrum
Other components of the spectrum include Gamma Rays
Ultra Violet
Visible Light
Infrared Radios use sine waves to transmit data
radios use multiple frequencies Radio parts Transmitter
Antennas Radio Characteristics
Frequency range
Number of frequencies
Transmitter power Frequency Oscillation Modulation Number of times a wave oscillates per second Oscillations are measure in"cycles per second" or "hertz"
"Kilohertz" AM radio
"Megahertz" FM radio The variation of a property of an electromagnetic wave or signal, such as its amplitude, frequency, or phase.
Amplitude Modulation (AM)
Frequency Modulation (FM) Radio waves are not just useful for AM and FM radio, they are also used for other world applications
Morse code (especially useful during WWI)
Television (sends picture as AM and sound as AM or FM)
Navigation- GPS
Radar- Sends out radio waves that bounce off object to detect them
Heating- such as microwaves
Radio Control (RC)- for controlling devices such as toys, work equipment, weapons, etc.
Advertising How does a radio station make money? They sell air time

AM/FM Radio
Different radio programs
Community Online radio
Grooveshark Satellite radio
An analogue or digital radio signal that is relayed through one or more satellites.
Satellite navigation(GPS)
Used for two things mainly: GPS and High quality radio GPS systems
Garmin, TomTom, Magellan
Satellite radio companies
Rhapsody, Sirus XM
Satellite radios are better formatted than AM/FM Communication radio
Still used in fire stations, airports, train/bus stations, police stations, and shipping.
Types of radio communication
Phones (landlines/cellular)
Walkies talkies
Police radio
Morse code
