RF (radio frequency) refers to the use of electromagnetic radiation for transferring information between two circuits that have no direct electrical connection. 

According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), RF waves emanating from an antenna are generated by the movement of electrical charges in the antenna.  

Electromagnetic waves can be characterized by a wavelength and a frequency.  The wavelength is the distance covered by one complete cycle of the electromagnetic wave, while the frequency is the number of electromagnetic waves passing a given point in one second.
