    Ok a man has a sat phone, microwave signal based, he makes a home made telegraph and adds it to the sat phone. the signal sent even though he is using a telegraph with a sat phone is still microwave based, it does not magically change into a radio signal, does it????

    Hi majiball,
    The wavelengths of the emitted signal will correspond to whatever device is emitting it. If it is emitted from a monkey's butt, then it will be the wavelengths that the the monkey's butt emits.

    Cheers,
    william

    We used to refer to microwave communication as "microwave radio," since it used the radio principles of modulation and demodulation, transmission and reception. So this is a rather silly argument. Since you have information modulated into a microwave carrier it is still microwave radio even if we no longer use that term.

    Just as the words that leave your mouth are translated into microwaves, so too are the dots and dashes created by the telegraph.
