Figure 1. The EMF spectrum. As frequency and energy increase the wavelength decreases. Multiple medically related items and common environmental events are displayed in their respective range in the electromagnetic spectrum (15).

Figure 2. A & B. Radio frequency carrier signal as a function of time (horizontal axis). A. The physical appearance of an unaltered carrier signal (i.e. a radiofrequency wave) and amplitude-modulated carrier signal. B. An amplitude-modulated carrier signal showing modulation depth and frequency post modulation (29-31).
