FOREWORD: Dear reader, please keep in mind that photons and electrons at different frequencies exhibit varying degrees of magnetism, induction, field effects and susceptibility to those forces. Some of the terminology utilized herein may be presented in other literature with different connotations. I appreciate your flexibility with my usage of the terminology presented. TRANSMISSION: Radio signal radiation is a product of alternating current between electrically coupled conductors within an induction field. The induction field is enhanced by conductor proximity and frequency resonance. As a transmitter energizes a conductor* the electron shells of the conductor's atoms alternate between high and low energy states. Photons are emitted on each fall of the electron shell energy state which peaks on both halves of the radio frequency cycle (from the top of the sine wave peak back towards zero as well as the negative peak return back towards zero). This phenomena is exactly the same as photon generation in fluorescent lighting utilizing the excitation of mercury atoms between higher and lower energy states to produce visible light. Radio waves are photonic and not electronic, no electrons travel through free space outside of the antenna's induction field and even then the term "free" infers plasma in its purest state and well above the energy levels that are likely to exist in the circumstances Of this discussion. The electrical current between an antenna's conducting elements is a closed loop, electrons are not the medium by which radio signals propagate. The closed current loop facilitates the excitation of atoms and the subsequent production of photons. Much like the two support wires of an incandescent light bulb deliver power to the filament that produces photons in the human visible spectrum, the conductors of an antenna facilitate the electron flow that produces photons at radio frequencies. Within this analogy the bulb filament is equivalent to the induction field between the two antenna conductors. Just like the light emitted from an incandescent bulb, radio waves are not influenced by the path of the electrons in the antenna circuit, radio waves radiate outward from the antenna elements based solely on the element's geometric orientation. Another analogy is a needle, heated to incandescence by a blowtorch, produces light that is unaffected by the physical flame. RECEPTION: When radio waves come into the charge field of loosely bound electrons typical of metallic conductors, photons are absorbed and drive the electrons into a higher energy state. This action induces voltage changes within the receiving conductor and those changes are detected and amplified. NOTES: Keep in mind that the mechanism by which photons are emitted and absorbed by electrons is not known at this time, however the effects of the phenomena itself is well known. Those desiring to confirm the veracity of these statements need only to check online by searching, "Radio waves are photons. Thoughts, comments, corrections or hysterical laughter?
