An example of low frequency is 982 Hz. The signal at the low frequency is the least susceptible to bleed-over and may travel further than the signals at higher frequencies. However, the signal at low frequency will be less able to jump discontinuities in the line, such as insulating gaskets.
International Telecommunication Union designation for the 30-300 kHz band of frequencies. Mutual inductance. The abbreviation for mega or 1 million. And also indicates 1000 (one thousand) feet in the wire industry. Lower case m is for milli or one-thousandth. See also m.
The part of the radio spectrum ranging from 30 to 300 kHz. A number of standard time and frequency signals are broadcast in this region, including the 60 kHz signal from NIST Radio Station WWVB, and the 100 kHz LORAN-C signals.
Low Frequency or LF refers to Radio Frequencies (RF) in the range of 30–300 kHz. In Europe, part of the LF spectrum is used for AM broadcast service. In the western hemisphere, its main use is for aircraft beacon, navigation (LORAN), information, and weather systems.
