Broadcasting

Most people first come into contact with radio by listening to radio broadcasts. Today many households have a variety of broadcast receivers from portable sets for use around the home, and car radios to very expensive hi-fi systems. These are used to pick up broadcasts on the long, medium, and short wave bands as well as the higher quality transmissions on the VHF FM band. In addition to this new digital broadcast systems are being introduced and these are capable of providing even higher quality reproduction than that which can be obtained with VHF FM. Apart from providing improved quality these transmissions can also provide a new range of facilities as they are able to transmit data alongside the audio.
