AM Broadcasting
AM BROADCASTING is a radio broadcasting technology, which employs amplitude modulation (AM) transmissions. It was the first method developed for making audio radio transmissions, and is still used worldwide, primarily for medium wave (also known as "AM band") transmissions, but also on the longwave and shortwave radio bands. The earliest experimental AM transmissions were begun in the early 1900s. However, widespread AM broadcasting
AM broadcasting
was not established until the 1920s, following the development of vacuum tube receivers and transmitters

Koku
The KOKU (石) is a Japanese unit of volume, equal to ten cubic shaku . In this definition, 3.5937 koku equal one cubic metre , i.e. 1 koku is about 278.3 litres . The koku was originally defined as a quantity of rice , enough rice to feed one person for one year (one masu is enough rice to feed a person for one day). A koku of rice weighs about 150 kilograms (330 pounds). In 1891, a smaller koku was defined such that one koku equalled exactly  240100⁄1331 litres, which is about 180.39 litres, or about 5 bushels (40 imperial or 48 US gallons ), or ~68.4% the size of the original "koku". Under the Tokugawa shogunate of the Edo period (1603–1868) of Japanese history , each feudal domain had an assessment of its potential income known as kokudaka which in part determined its order of precedence at the Shogunal court

In Germany both "Knut" and "Knud" are used. In Spanish and Portuguese CANUTO is used which comes from the Latin version CANUTUS. The name is derived from the Old Norse KNúTR meaning "knot". It is the name of several medieval kings of Denmark, two of whom also reigned over England during the first half of the 11th century.

Call Sign
In broadcasting and radio communications , a CALL SIGN (also known as a CALL NAME or CALL LETTERS—and historically as a CALL SIGNAL—or abbreviated as a CALL) is a unique designation for a transmitter station . In North America, they are used for all FCC-licensed transmitters. A call sign can be formally assigned by a government agency, informally adopted by individuals or organizations, or even cryptographically encoded to disguise a station's identity. The use of call signs as unique identifiers dates to the landline railroad telegraph system. Because there was only one telegraph line linking all railroad stations , there needed to be a way to address each one when sending a telegram . In order to save time, two-letter identifiers were adopted for this purpose. This pattern continued in radiotelegraph operation; radio companies initially assigned two-letter identifiers to coastal stations and stations aboard ships at sea

Shortwave Radio
SHORTWAVE RADIO is radio transmission using shortwave radio frequencies , generally 1.6–30 MHz
MHz
(187.4–10.0 m), just above the medium wave AM broadcast band. Radio
Radio
waves in this band can be reflected or refracted from a layer of electrically charged atoms in the atmosphere called the ionosphere . Therefore, short waves directed at an angle into the sky can be reflected back to Earth at great distances, beyond the horizon. This is called skywave or skip propagation . Thus shortwave radio can be used for very long distance communication, in contrast to radio waves of higher frequency which travel in straight lines (line-of-sight propagation ) and are limited by the visual horizon, about 40 miles (64 km). Shortwave radio

Facility ID
The FACILITY ID NUMBER, also called a FIN or FACILITY IDENTIFIER, is a unique integer number of one to six digits, assigned by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission
Federal Communications Commission
's (FCC) Media Bureau to each broadcast station in the FCC's Consolidated Database System (CDBS). Because CDBS includes information about foreign stations which are notified to the U.S. under the terms of international frequency coordination agreements, FINs are also assigned to affected foreign stations. However, this has no legal significance, and the numbers are not used by the regulatory authorities in those other countries. Current FCC practice is to assign facility ID numbers sequentially, but this is not an official requirement, so third-party users must not rely on it

Frequency
FREQUENCY is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time . It is also referred to as TEMPORAL FREQUENCY, which emphasizes the contrast to spatial frequency and angular frequency . The PERIOD is the duration of time of one cycle in a repeating event, so the period is the reciprocal of the frequency. For example, if a newborn baby's heart beats at a frequency of 120 times a minute, its period—the time interval between beats—is half a second (that is, 60 seconds divided by 120 beats ). Frequency
Frequency
is an important parameter used in science and engineering to specify the rate of oscillatory and vibratory phenomena, such as mechanical vibrations, audio (sound ) signals, radio waves , and light
