In news:

Lang and Randall believe the radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted from the meter-reading devices causes health problems and argued that Clarkfield residents should not be forced into accepting the new technology.
An alternative to gasses, radiation or carbon-producing thermal techniques, Radio Frequency Co. Macrowave Ultra-Series pasteurization systems apply a high-frequency electric field to control pathogens in food.
(More familiar forms of this radiation include radio, light and X -rays.
Hardin stated that "X-rays, like radio waves and visible light … do not involve neutrons at all, and are therefore called non-ionizing radiation" ("A Scream," Mailbox, March 31).
Do people not realize how much radiation they get from the sun everyday (including radio waves).
A a strong solar radiation storm is expected to cause more trouble with electrical grids, satellite and radio signals.
Summer means sunshine and here are a couple of neat projects that you can quickly build for exploring two different properties of the sun: radio spectrum analysis and solar radiation measurement.
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has called for a moratorium on smart meters in homes and schools, based on the documented health hazards of radio frequency radiation from these tools.
Hardin stated that " X-ray s, like radio waves and visible light … do not involve neutrons at all, and are therefore called non-ionizing radiation" ("A Scream," Mailbox, March 31).

In science:

The radiation that is occasionally emitted from nonrelativistic shocks is restricted to the radio are not retarded from flow speed to rest) and, third, because of the low ‘emission measure’ EM = (cid:82) dr3∆N 2 wave range.

But these are correlated with broadening of the harmonic radio radiation towards lower frequencies.

Moreover, they might be responsible for the electromagnetic radiation generated in the shock ramp, a process that has been observed in solar and interplanetary type II radio bursts but never found a convincing explanation by any known mechanism.

The X-ray/TeV flux correlation (see Fig. 1) suggests that the emitting particles are electrons radiating synchrotron emission in the radio to X-ray band and inverse Compton emission in the gamma-ray band.

It is, however, important to note that not every cluster shows central radio activity, and that the steep dependence of the radiative cooling function on density makes it difficult to stabilize cooling flows at all radii.
