AMSER: Applied Math and Science Education Repository Abstract:

Students gain understanding of electromagnetic radiation as they broadcast radio waves from a transmitter to receiver. They can manually control the transmitter electron or set automatic oscillation. The field can be displayed as a curve or vectors, with students controlling the frequency and amplitude. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). The simulations are animated, interactive, and game-like environments.

PheT Abstract:

Broadcast radio waves from KPhET. Wiggle the transmitter electron manually or have it oscillate automatically. Display the field as a curve or vectors. The strip chart shows the electron positions at the transmitter and at the receiver.
