Radio Communication and Networks
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
Radio communication is usually associated with wireless communication systems like taxicab radios and marine radio, as well as broadcast systems such AM/FM radio and television. Other wireless radio technologies include cordless phones, cellular phones, pagers, garage door openers, walkie-talkies, satellite messaging systems, amateur packet radio, and citizens band radio. Many copper-cable network technologies also operate in the frequency bands allocated to radio. The topic "Electromagnetic Spectrum" has a table that illustrates the most common uses of the radio spectrum.
