In Sea Cadet terms, a Radio Station may range from a single Cadet Operator with a hand-held UHF transceiver to a room containing transmitters and receivers on all Sea Cadet frequencies, connected to outdoor aerials, capable of local as well as medium and long range communication. Such a station may also be capable of internal communications within the Unit by telephone, messenger and other means.
A radio station is an audio (sound) broadcasting service, traditionally broadcast through the air as radio waves (a form of electromagnetic radiation) from a transmitter to an antenna and a thus to a receiving device. Stations can be linked in radio networks to broadcast common programming, either in syndication or simulcast or both. Today, stations also broadcast via cable FM, local wire networks, satellite and the Internet.
