radio frequency band


Radio frequency bands are classified as follows.
ams2001glos-Rt2
These bands, based on multiples of 3, are a consequence of the speed of light being very nearly equal to 3 x 108 m s−1. Thus, VHF corresponds to free-space wavelengths 1–10 m and so on.
Compare radar frequency band.
