Definitions for radio frequency
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word radio frequency
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
