  AM transmitter principles
The frequency of 95 kilohertz, for example, is heterodyned with the frequency of 100 kilohertz and the sum and difference frequencies are again produced.
This frequency, which is identical to the original 5 kilohertz audio applied at the transmitter, is retained and amplified.
Carrier assignments start at 540 kilohertz and continue in a succession of 10-kilohertz increments until the upper limit of the broadcast band is reached.

 Kilohertz to Meters Conversion Charts
NOTE: In the charts below, "khz" refers to the frequency in kilohertz, while "meters" is the corresponding wavelength in meters.
So nowadays KFI is assigned to "640 kilohertz", or if you prefer abbreviations, "640 khz"--which should cover all the various ways of saying, for the past 80-plus years, that KFI is located at "640 on your radio dial".
Thus, in the above charts, 560 kilohertz was said by the 300,000 people to be equal to a wavelength of 536 meters, while the more precise 299,820 crowd came up with 535.4 meters.

 Re: Tuned Loop For AM Radio   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Well, the tuning range of a variable capacitor is expressed as a ratio where the square root of the variable's maximum capacitance divided by its minimum capacity is equal to the upper frequency of the tuning range divided by its lower frequency.
Moreover, you decide that 1600 kilohertz is the upper frequency you wish to tune.
When using that equation set the value of F to 375 kilohertz and C to the maximum capacitance(365 pf).

 [24.01] Changing Frequency Separation of Kilohertz Quasi-Periodic Oscillations in the Sonic-Point Beat-Frequency Model   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Previous work on the sonic-point beat-frequency (SPBF) model of the kilohertz quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) observed in the X-ray flux from neutron stars in low-mass binary systems has shown that it naturally explains many properties of these QPOs.
In the SPBF model, the kilohertz QPOs are effects of strong-field gravity.
Thus, if the model is validated, the kilohertz QPOs can be used not only to determine the properties of neutron stars but also to explore quantitatively general relativistic effects in the strong-field regime.

 Powell's Books - 2182 Kilohertz by David Masiel
Desperate for real human contact, he tunes the sideband radio to 2182 kHz (twenty-one eighty-two kilohertz), the international distress channel, in the vague hope of finding someone he can save.
Taking its name from the marine distress channel, 2182 Kilohertz tells the story of Henry Seine, a pot-smoking merchant sailor stationed in the Alaskan arctic who is slowly losing his grip on reality.
David Masiel was born in Oakland, California, and grew up in Richmond, where he used to sit at an old Formica table and listen to his grandfather‛s stories of rogues, riverboats, sailors, and the sea.

 [10.05] Origins of the Kilohertz and Horizontal Branch QPOs in the Z\\Sources   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The frequency relationships observed between the upper and lower kilohertz QPOs and the ~10--60~Hz horizontal branch oscillations (HBOs) in the Z sources are important indicators of the mechanisms that produce them.
Moreover, the correlation observed between the frequencies of the HBO and the upper kilohertz QPO cannot be accounted for in the Lense-Thirring precession model, even when the effects of classical precession are taken into account.
In contrast, the magnetospheric beat-frequency model of the HBOs predicts a power-law relation between HBO frequency and upper kilohertz QPO frequency that is consistent with the relation observed, if the frequency of the upper kilohertz QPO is an orbital frequency in the inner disk.

In upsampling the filter frequency is raised to a higher frequency that is not a multiple of 44.1 kilohertz, but an arbitrary frequency that may be divided by 44.1, 48, or 96 kilohertz.
Because 44.1 kilohertz is not an integer of 96 kilohertz, you do have to lose some information by upsampling.
It is down about one decibel at 10 kilohertz and approximately another decibel and a half at 20 kilohertz.

 RWonline - IBOC DAB
The digital information must be carried on additional digital sidebands that extend out to approximately +/- 15 kilohertz in the case of the hybrid mode and approximately +/- 10 kilohertz in the all-digital mode.
Much attention was focused on the receiver bandwidth issue more than a decade ago and a compromise was reached to allow reception of bandwidth approaching 10 kilohertz with receivers having sufficient bandwidth, even though there were none commonly available on the market at that time.
A modulator bandwidth of 50 kilohertz or more is needed to provide acceptable IBOC performance and minimize out of band emissions.

In this model the X-ray source is a neutron star with a surface magnetic field $\sim 10^7 \dash 10^{10}$~G and a spin frequency of a few hundred Hertz, accreting gas via a Keplerian disk.
This model is consistent with the magnetic fields, accretion rates, and scattering optical depths inferred from previous modeling of the X-ray spectra and rapid X-ray variability of the atoll and Z sources.
It explains naturally the frequencies of the kilohertz QPOs and the fact that the frequencies of these QPOs are similar in sources with different accretion rates and magnetic fields.

Most applications can be processed by 20 kilohertz, which can be achieved by a variety of power supplies.
"Horns are typically about 50 percent smaller than at 20 kilohertz and have lower amplitude, which causes less stress on the parts being welded.

We report the discovery of kilohertz fluctuations, including quasiperiodic oscillations (QPO) at{approx}330 Hz (260-407 Hz) and{approx}760 Hz (671-849 Hz) and a broadband kilohertz continuum in the power-density spectrum of the high-mass X-ray binary pulsar Centaurus X-3.
These results, which required the co-adding three days of observations of Cen X-3, are at least as fast as the fastest known variations in X-ray emission from an accreting compact object (kilohertz QPO in LMXB sources) and probably faster since extension to{approx}1800 Hz is indicated by the most likely parameterization of the data.
This analysis of GX 17+2 clearly indicates the presence of a kilohertz QPO and the absence of any significant simultaneous kilohertz continuum.

 RXTE Discovers Kilohertz Quasiperiodic Oscillations
In February 1996, two groups analyzing data at Goddard Space Flight Center began to see evidence for these ultrafast variations in the X-ray light curves of 4U 1728-34 (led by Tod Strohmayer of Goddard) and Sco X-1 (led by Michiel van der Klis of the University of Amsterdam).
The oscillations they observed are nearly periodic and have frequencies of about 1000 hertz - hence the name "kilohertz (kHz) quasi-periodic oscillations (QPO)".

 Radio   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Because of their varying characteristics, radio waves of different lengths are employed for different purposes but are usually identified by their frequency (cycles per second).
In honor of the German radio pioneer Heinrich Hertz, his name has been given to the cycle per second (hertz, Hz); 1 kilohertz (kHz) is 1000 cycles per sec, 1 megahertz (MHz) is 1 million cycles per sec, and 1 gigahertz (GHz) is 1 billion cycles per sec.
The higher the frequency, the smaller the wavelength, since all the waves travel at the speed of light (about 186,000 mi / 300,000 km per second).
