Radio Waves
-
Outside the Ordinary Uses
Katy Pitcher – P11257719
What are radio waves?
If you can’t see it, how do you know it’s there?
The difference between radio waves and God:
• Whilst radio waves are invisible to the human eye, they carry everyday information thousands of miles every day, drastically changing the way that we as humans, act.
• Radio waves don’t just have to be used in radio. Whilst radio waves seem to be primarily used in this way, they actually have many different forms in our world – wireless technology in mobile phone to MRI scans and radiotheraphy in hospitals.
• God hasn’t yet cured cancer – radio may well do.


Radio waves work by transmitting information on a specific frequency. If you were to tune a receiver to this frequency, you could then receive whatever information being transmitted by the set.
Katy Pitcher – P11257719
This PowerPoint presentation covers the uses of radio waves outside of the typical use – listening to them, via an amplifier.
The recent developments in technology mean a lot more can be done with a simple piece of technology. 5 years you could connect a device to your iPod, which would then transmit radio waves into the ether – letting you play your music through an analogue radio (as long as you could find a free wave!).
This technology had limitations – if you were driving along a bumpy road on a cloudy day, it would be very difficult to keep a constant stream from the iPod. Using an FM frequency meant that there would also be difficulties in built up areas.
So what’s changed? Why can we do so much now that we couldn’t before? Why does the Gadget Guy’s in-car pasta maker (in the Toyota advert) get beaten by a car that can pick up music directly – and wirelessly, from a mobile?

What can radio waves can do?
Wiping out bees
Astronomy
Mobile Marketing
Tagging and Tracking
Cure for Cancer
Mobile Radio
Whilst this presentation will focus on a few main uses, there many uses for radio waves, some of which are listed above
Radio – A cure for cancer?
John S. Kanzius
(March 1, 1944 – February 18, 2009)
The main issues surrounding cancer cures is the difficulty of destroying the cancer cells – without damaging healthy ones.
Radiation therapy specifically has this issue – but testing and cases show that it can be used to cure cancer. The danger of radiation therapy, and the reason it is so frequently used in conjunction with chemotherapy is the damage to healthy , surrounding healthy cells. This can sometimes cause more damage than help.
John S. Kanzius created the concept of radio waves treating cancer cells. Unlike chemotherapy and radiation therapy, radiotherapy has the potential to treat surrounding cells – and not damaging the healthy ones. This manipulation of radio waves is a massive development for medical science.
Radio – The end of Bees
Scientists say that the end of bees will coincide with the end of the world, but nobody really know what is killing them. Or do they?

  • 5. Scientists say that the end of bees will coincide with theend of the world, but nobody really know what is killingthem. Or do they?A 2010 study by Punjab University has suggested thatmobile phone radiation could be what caused the 17%drop between 2009 and 2010 in the population levels ofbees. After 3 months of the study the hives population haddrastically dropped, and the Queen’s egg production hadmore than halved.Because of the way that bees use cryptochrome fornavigation. Radio waves used in mobile phone technologycould be confusing the bees navigation; it stops the beesbeing able to sense the earths magnetic field – and assuch, confuses their directions.

  • 6. Wireless technology can be used in many ways. Primarily it allows for wireless internet connection but wirelessA computer, mobile technology is actually used(or whatever device is much of humanused for wireless technology. A cordlessaccess) transmits phone, be that landline ordata via a wireless mobile uses radio wavessignal through an and wireless tech. Aantennae. remote control for a television uses this technology – even a carA router is then used to receive and key uses it to connect todecode this signal from the device. This the car’s central lockingthen connects to the internet using a system, and allow thecabled Ethernet connection. doors to be unlocked. Katy Pitcher – P11257719
  • 7. Radio waves use powerful magnets and radio waves to create visual images. Notonly can these be used for brain scans, a similar replication of the technology hasbeen used to create the full body scanners now used in some airport securities.The 2003 Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Paul Lauterbur and PeterMansfield for this technology, as it can show tumours at an earlier stage thanprevious technologies.Cancerous cells and tissuesemit the same signals asordinary, healthy cells.However their signal is emittedfor longer – thereby showingwhich tissue needs therapyand which doesn’t. Katy Pitcher – P11257719
  • 8. In September 2011 Array Converter announced that they weredeveloping a technology that would better convert solar energy –using radio waves. Solar energy currently uses inverter technology, switching DC to AC in order for it to be fed into the electronics grid. There are normally about 12 solar panels to every 1 inverter.By using amplitude modulation, the same technology used in radios, it is hoped thatthis radio technology can then be used to convert the direct current in the panels intothe current used in the grid. Not only is this technology much cheaper in the long-term, it actually works out fiscally beneficial in the short term. Ordinarily with solar energy, benefits are only reaped far down the line – using amplitude modulation cuts “overall equipment and installation costs”. Katy Pitcher – P11257719
  • 9. All radio controlled toys, such as model cars, planes and boats have four thing in common: 1. The Transmitter 2. The Receiver 3. The Motor 4. The Power SourceThe transmitter controls the toy – it works as a remote. This sends thereceiver radio waves. The receiver is the circuit board within the toy. Thisreceives the signals from the transmitter and then activates themotor, which creates the motion in the toy – turning the wheels of the caror spinning the propellers on a plane.
