Radio Frequency

Division Of Radio Frequency (Spectrum Radio Communication Frequencies)

         Radio Frequency  An electromagnetic wave with frequencies from 3Hz to 3000GHz (3THz). Radio waves are widely used in telecommunications. And in use must no interference. It is strictly controlled by the laws of each country. It is coordinated by a middle name organization. International Telecommunication Union (ITU)

      Radio Frequency Allocation. It has been allocated by the ITU for use in different telecommunications technologies. The use of radio frequencies must be authorized. And some popular radio frequencies. Like the frequency used in the phone. Frequency Band Radio Service Or television station. More than 40 telecommunication services are controlled by the ITU. Must request permission and pay rent or concession. Can be used. The ITU has been divided by the frequency of usage. Or the same purpose. It is divided into 12 Frequency bands.
