Radio Station
A RADIO STATION is a set of equipment necessary to carry on communication via radio waves . Generally, it is a receiver or transmitter , an antenna , and some smaller additional equipment necessary to operate them. Radio stations
Radio stations
play a vital role in communication technology as they are heavily relied on to transfer data and information across the world. More broadly, the definition of a radio station includes the aforementioned equipment and a building in which it is installed. Such a station may include several "radio stations" defined above (i.e. several sets of receivers or transmitters installed in one building but functioning independently, and several antennas installed on a field next to the building). This definition of a radio station is more often referred to as a transmitter site, transmitter station , transmission facility or transmitting station

DECT
DIGITAL ENHANCED CORDLESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS (Digital European Cordless Telecommunications), usually known by the acronym DECT, is a standard primarily used for creating cordless telephone systems. It originated in Europe, where it is the universal standard, replacing earlier cordless phone standards, such as 900 MHz CT1 and CT2 . Beyond Europe, it has been adopted by Australia

Baby Monitor
A BABY MONITOR, also known as a BABY ALARM, is a radio system used to remotely listen to sounds made by an infant . An audio monitor consists of a transmitter unit, equipped with a microphone , placed near to the child. It transmits the sounds by radio waves to a receiver unit with a speaker carried by, or near to, the person caring for the infant. Some baby monitors provide two-way communication which allows the parent to speak back to the baby (parent talk-back). Some allow music to be played to the child. A monitor with a video camera and receiver is often called a baby cam. One of the primary uses of baby monitors is to allow attendants to hear when an infant wakes, while out of immediate hearing distance of the infant. Although commonly used, there is no evidence that these monitors prevent SIDS , and many doctors believe they provide a false sense of security. Infants and young children can often be heard over a baby monitor in crib talk , in which they talk to themselves

Cell Phone
A MOBILE PHONE is a portable telephone that can make and receive calls over a radio frequency link while the user is moving within a telephone service area. The radio frequency link establishes a connection to the switching systems of a mobile phone operator , which provides access to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Modern mobile telephone services use a cellular network architecture, and, therefore, mobile telephones are often also called cellular telephones or cell phones. In addition to telephony , 2000s-era mobile phones support a variety of other services , such as text messaging , MMS , email , Internet access , short-range wireless communications (infrared , Bluetooth ), business applications, gaming, and digital photography . Mobile phones which offer these and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones . The first handheld mobile phone was demonstrated by John F

MHz
The HERTZ (symbol: Hz) is the derived unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI) and is defined as one cycle per second . It is named for Heinrich Rudolf Hertz
Hertz
, the first person to provide conclusive proof of the existence of electromagnetic waves . Hertz
Hertz
are commonly expressed in multiples : kilohertz (103 Hz, kHz), megahertz (106 Hz, MHz), gigahertz (109 Hz, GHz), and terahertz (1012 Hz, THz). Some of the unit's most common uses are in the description of sine waves and musical tones , particularly those used in radio - and audio-related applications. It is also used to describe the speeds at which computers and other electronics are driven

Citizens Band
CITIZENS BAND RADIO (also known as CB RADIO) is, in many countries, a system of short-distance radio communications between individuals typically on a selection of 40 channels within the 27 MHz (11 m) band. Citizens band is distinct from other personal radio service allocations such as FRS , GMRS , MURS , UHF CB and the Amateur Radio Service ("ham" radio). In many countries, CB operation does not require a license, and (unlike amateur radio) it may be used for business or personal communications. Like many other two-way radio services, citizens band channels are shared by many users. Only one station may transmit at a time; other stations must listen and wait for the shared channel to be available. It is customary for stations waiting to use a shared channel to broadcast the single word "Break" during a lull in the conversation. This informs people using the channel that others are waiting

Transmission (telecommunications)
In telecommunications , TRANSMISSION (abbreviation: TX) is the process of sending and propagating an analogue or digital information signal over a physical point-to-point or point-to-multipoint transmission medium , either wired, optical fiber or wireless. One example of transmission is the sending of a signal with limited duration, for example a block or packet of data, a phone call, or an email. Transmission technologies and schemes typically refer to physical layer protocol duties such as modulation , demodulation , line coding , equalization , error control , bit synchronization and multiplexing , but the term may also involve higher-layer protocol duties, for example, digitizing an analog message signal, and source coding (compression). Transmission of a digital message, or of a digitized analog signal, is known as digital communication

Internet Radio
INTERNET RADIO (also WEB RADIO, NET RADIO, STREAMING RADIO, E-RADIO, IP RADIO, ONLINE RADIO, WEBCASTING) is an audio service transmitted via the Internet . Broadcasting on the Internet is usually referred to as webcasting since it is not transmitted broadly through wireless means. Internet radio involves streaming media , presenting listeners with a continuous stream of audio that typically cannot be paused or replayed, much like traditional broadcast media; in this respect, it is distinct from on-demand file serving. Internet radio is also distinct from podcasting , which involves downloading rather than streaming. Internet radio services offer news , sports , talk , and various genres of music —every format that is available on traditional broadcast radio stations

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

was not established until the 1920s, following the development of vacuum tube receivers and transmitters
