  1. Very high frequency

    Very high frequency is the ITU-designated range of radio frequency electromagnetic waves from 30 MHz to 300 MHz. Frequencies immediately below VHF are denoted high frequency, and the next higher frequencies are known as ultra high frequency. These names referring to frequency usage originate from the early 20th century, when regular radio service used the terms LF, MF, and HF. These names were standardized by the International Telecommunications Union and extended to higher frequency ranges. Common uses for VHF are FM radio broadcasting, television broadcasting, land mobile stations, long range data communication up to several tens of kilometres with radio modems, amateur radio and marine communications. Air traffic control communications and air navigation systems work at distances of 100 kilometres or more to aircraft at cruising altitude.
