Re: transmitter failure, range, etc.. I was saying I can understand a Radio Station calling their webstream radio as they are an actual "radio Station" (aka have a broadcast license). if they abandoned wireless transmission. Then they need to stop calling themselves "Radio"

Yes WiFi is Radio Technology as it falls between 3000 hertz and 300 gigahertz, and uses radiant EM.. see:

Satellite radio is also radio (radiant EM in the range above)

Televison is defined as transmission by either wire or Radio. See: Also most still brodcast digitally via ATSC which you can still pick up for free with a receiver. (Cable companies just don't want people to know about this)


As to your later points.. Yes language is often muddy and imprecise, but it doesn't have to be. People can take the time to learn the correct terms and apply them correctly. I'm not trying to be a troll here. This is just a pet peeve of mine. probably steming from my early involvement in Technology/Electronics and also Philosophy in which precise definition of terms is important before beginning a discussion ( )
