1.1 Basic theory of short-wave radio.
Short-wave bands are to be found on many broadcast radio receivers. There are various broadcast bandsand to tune into them you are given the wavelength,for example 25, 31 or 41 metres. In radiocommunications the tuning information is given in kHz (kiloHertz) or MHz (MegaHertz), formerly Kc/sor Mc/s. Radio waves travel at the speed of light i.e. 300,000 km per second and because wavelength andfrequency are related you can easily translate from wavelength to frequency by the relationship:Frequency in MHz=300__________________Wavelength in metres.For example,a wavelength of 25 metres gives:
