radio frequency

n. Abbr. RF
1. The frequency of the waves transmitted by a specific radio station.
2. A frequency within the range at which radio waves are transmitted, conventionally from 3 hertz to 300 megahertz, immediately below the range of microwave frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum.

radio frequency
