an electromagnetic wave frequency between audio and infrared
That part of the electromagnetic spectrum, between about 3 kHz and 300 MHz, within which radio waves are transmitted.
A frequency in this range.
Radio frequency is a rate of oscillation in the range of about 3 kHz to 300 GHz, which corresponds to the frequency of radio waves, and the alternating currents which carry radio signals. RF usually refers to electrical rather than mechanical oscillations; however, mechanical RF systems do exist. Although radio frequency is a rate of oscillation, the term "radio frequency" or its abbreviation "RF" are also used as a synonym for radio – i.e. to describe the use of wireless communication, as opposed to communication via electric wires. Examples include: ⁕Radio-frequency identification ⁕ISO/IEC 14443-2 Radio frequency power and signal interface
