published by the Physics Education Technology Project
This simulation from the University of Colorado will help you understand how to broadcast radio waves from a transmitter to receiver. You can control the transmitter electron or set automatic oscillation. You can display the field as a curve or vectors, and vary 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.
