7. Transmit through the atmosphere

The radio signal travels through the atmosphere, shown in this graphic. The LF signal (green) propagates by groundwave, following the curvature of the earth; the HF signal (pink) propagates by skywave, and bounces off the ionosphere. All signals travel at the speed of light.
