Link to transmitter article

Add a link to transmitter tower, which all radio stations need. Jidanni (talk) 20:19, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the tip. Lalolan (talk) 09:46, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Radio frequency

I've added on_air:frequency=<value> FM or AM because didn't found another tag more used (saw that in taginfo 18 in total). It could be also communication:radio:frequency=* (2 in total) or radio:frequency=* (0 in total). Lalolan (talk) 09:46, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Should it be a physical attribute of the broadcast, or something abstract for tuning into like contact:radio=* (ie leave this frequency format to the equipment)... Think you should keep AM/FM out of the value. Proposed features/Radio Frequency didn't handle stations broadcasting in both FM and AM with different frequency values.

(they seem different)

(peculiarly Proposed_features/Communications_Transponder#Technical_Tags didn't think AM/FM is needed to find the channel)

(slightly relevant)

Or simply use frequency=* first?
Relatedly, WARC 79 has a list of semi-human-readable standard codes ( Types_of_radio_emissions#Type_of_modulation, at least using "A" and "F" for the usual meanings.
