There is a complex answer to this, so lets put up the basics. First, very low frequency (vlf) radio frequency (rf) energy can "bend" and can travel around the world (literally) as well as penetrate water to some degree. It can be received almost anywhere on the globe. Is that enough range? U.S. Naval submarine communications uses this phenomenon. Electromagnetic radiation (emr) can also travel (propagate) via a "bounce" (can be reflected and/or refracted) off the ionized upper atmosphere (depending on frequency and angle of incidence), and, to a degree, bounce off land and water. It can thereby "bounce" its way around the world. There will be "dead spots" where the signal can't be "seen" by a receiver - unlike a circumnavigating vlf wave. Both those eventualities are power dependent, naturally. The bad news is that if one wants to get a signal from point A to point B, there are variables that will determine what "band" of transmission is best suited to the task.
A: AM radio is an Amplitude Modulation transmission . Meaning it has fix frequency but it is modulated by the signal. FM Frequency Modulation the frequency is modulated by the signal
to shift the frequency of information signal ,at the frequency domain to a higher frequency ...so the information can be transmitted to the receiver.
A: A radio transmission signal has an envelope where the carrier frequency are enveloped by the analog signal before demodulation. it can easily be seen by an oscilloscope
Frequency Modulation must have a carrier whereby the frequency can be modulated by the signal
Base band signal is transmission of more than single frequency from zero hz to higher frequency components example : base band signal must be modulated to higher frequencies for radio transmission
No. It is not possible to determine if someone is listening in on a radio transmission, with or without noise. The only protection you have is to scramble the signal.
Amplitude modulation and frequency modulation. FM is a way of adjusting a signal for transmission by radio frequency to cut out the background radiation that can create static and a weak or damaged signal; AM is simply using one frequency and amplifying it only.
rf radio frequency
The numbers in an FM radio station represent the frequency the station transmits the signal on. The frequency range for FM band radio stations is from 87.5 MHz to 108.0 MHz. These radio frequencies are considered VHF or Very High Frequency. The difference between AM and FM radio is that in AM radio the Amplitude is Modulated, or changed to send the signal, whereas with FM, the Frequency is Modulated or altered to send the signal.

Energy of radio signal E = hf, Planck's constant times the frequency.
A downlink signal; a Ka Band signal

radio waves or radio frequency
Yes, you can however the distance that a signal may be travel depends on the power and frequency of the signal. For signals at the same power a lower frequency signal will travel further.
A downlink signal A Ka Band signal
The purpose of a coaxial cable is to act as a transmission line for a radio frequency signal. The electromagnetic field carrying that signal exists only in space between its inner and outer conductors.
A carrier is a signal does exactly what it says. It carries a signal embedded within it to a radio receiver. The carrier signal is modulated by the music or speech signal to form a modulated carrier wave. Amplitude modulated, that is AM radio, makes the carrier wave voltage vary in sympathy with the audio modulator. In FM radio the carrier is frequency modulated, or varied in frequency by the modulator signal. Both radio types needs a carrier signal to get the modulating signal to the distant radio.
An AM (Amplitude Modulated) radio wave is one where a constant frequency carrier is modulated with a signal by varying the amplitude of the carrier. An FM (Frequency Modulated) radio wave is one where a constant amplitude carrier is modulated with a signal by varying the frequency of the carrier.
Radio communication works on radio signals that are "beamed" into the air on a certain frequency. Frequency is a certain wavelength or band. The receiving equipment has to be set to receive the signal on the same frequency.
The analog method of signal transmission uses radio waves to carry signals. Digital transmission involves the use of satellites to transmit signals.
IF stands for Intermediate Frequency. An intermediate frequency is a frequency which the primary signal or carrier signal signal is changed to in the process of reception or transmission. For example, an FM or frequency modulated radio or FM television tuner uses an intermediate frequency or IF of 10.7 megaHertz, abbreviated mHz. The primary signal of an FM radio may be between 88 to 108 mHz. This signal is processed to 10.7 mHz and then demodulated to an audio signal that human ears can hear. The reason for using an intermediate frequency is that it will not interfere with the primary or carrier frequency. Also, the lower IF frequency is easier to deal with electronically. Commonly used IF frequencies in FM are 10.7 and 5.5 mHz.AM or amplitude modulation commonly uses 455 kiloHertz although others frequencies may be used.
In Analog communication, the analog message signal modulates some high carrier frequency inside the transmitter to produce modulated signal.this modulated signal is then transmitted with the help of a transmitting antenna to travel through the transmission channel. At the receiver, this modulated signal is received and processed to recover the original message signal. Example: AM , FM radio transmission an TV transmission.
