The Newest Wave In Radio Has No Waves

Dec 23, 2007
Actually, the newest wave in radio technology does not use a wave at all. It uses a satellite signal that is beamed down from the sky. It seems we are getting closer all the time to living in the Star Trek age. It has not been many years ago that the only way to get a radio signal to your home or car was by a tower that emit electromagnetic waves for broadcasting.

Even though the majority of people still use this technology to receive their radio signal, many people are turning more and more to satellites to receive their radio programming. When you listen to the radio at home using the electromagnetic broadcast method, it is fairly easy to get a clear constant signal because you are in a stationary position.

This method of receiving electromagnetic broadcast radio can be and always has been a little more aggravating when you are driving down the road in your car or live in remote places where some radio waves do not easily reach. When your car is in motion, after a while you can lose the station you are listening to because you move out of range. Then it is necessary to change the station in order to receive a new and closer broadcast.

With satellite radio this is becoming a thing of the past. Not only can you drive clear across the country and listen to the very same radio station all the way, but it is commercial free. Now that is an improvement. If only someone could magically make commercials obsolete for television viewing as well.

Another advantage of satellite radio is that there is no static to contend with. The signal that you get provides you with crystal clear listening pleasure. You can get satellite radio by purchasing a subscription to it, much the same way we purchase our satellite television channels.

Car manufacturers have begun installing satellite radio receivers in many of their latest models. If you own an older vehicle, you can purchase a portable satellite radio receiver from a number of electronics companies that will enable you to enjoy the newest radio technology too.

If you travel by vehicle a lot and love to listen to the radio as you go, then you might enjoy the advantages you get using satellite radio. After all it is probably the wave of the future, even if it is not an actual wave.
