How long are radio waves?

Waves longer than 1mm are considered to be in the radio spectrum, submarine communications use waves kilometers long. Some radio waves are too long to be used in communications today.

Why can chicken wire be used as the surface of a radio telescope?

It reflects some of radio waves. Also the gaps don't matter too much. That's because of the nature of the radio waves, particularly the wavelengths. In fact there is a large range of wavelengths. For the shorter wavelengths a "dish" type receiver is needed, with no gaps.


What are the waves with the longest wavelengths in the electromagnetic?

ELF radio waves or extremely low frequency radio waves. These may have frequencies below 1 Hz in some cases!

What atmosphere are radiowaves in?

Radio waves are in all parts of the atmosphere. Some, but not all, radio waves are reflected from the ionosphere, permitting transmission over greater distances.
