Radio transmitter is a device that allows the transfer of data wirelessly.
Radio receiver is a device that can receive wireless data.

Basic information

Radio transmitters are split into two types: transmitters, and receivers.

  • Transmitters:
    • Have limited range, which varies depending on the quality of the transmitter.
    • Sends a message to any receiver, which is in the correct range.
    • Are bolted to a base from which they receive power.
    • Does not transmit power, which means the receivers and transmitters must have their own power sources.
  • Receivers:
    • Have to be pointed to the direction of a transmitter.
    • They only look for signals in the area they're pointed at. This means that receivers may have to scan areas section by section to find transmitter messages.
    • If a receiver is in the range of a transmitter and is pointed towards the transmitter, the transmitter's message is set to the receiver's "Message"-field.
