The essay supposes a means of reducing transmission output power by multiple transmission of signal through several or many frequencies at lower transmission power than at just one frequency. The receiver has several or many tuned antennas compactly distributed to each frequency. When parallel input lines join into one series line (as trident forks merge to the trident’s pole/handle), a drop of the combined small pickup signal currents must pass through or across one resistor. The small currents are additive to a larger current that must register a greater variable drop in voltage against the circuit voltage against no input voltage level.
We use the term poly-hertz as hertz generally designates a radio frequency. Rather than the longer poly-frequency (maybe heterodyne transmission) I thought a shorter term would work better.
Whether this has advantages over single or mono-hertz transmission depends upon what perspective or need you deem valuable in a given situation. These will be discussed. I cover a range of uses from commercial music to military security, and hope that any development of the technology could spread overhead costs against multiple uses, just as the poly-hertz radio distributes power over several frequencies. I will use descriptive visualization to describe things, as this works best in eBook readers and is easy for me to format and execute.
Chapter 1: Basic Concepts
: As briefly stated in the preface, we should be able to combine signal input from several inputs to produce sufficient voltage drop across a circuit to ensure reliable pick-up of low power transmission signals. A parallel circuit feeds into a series line to create a sum current across the circuit detecting the voltage drop. This may involve using compact multiple antennas on both the receiver and transmitter, but not necessarily so. Fractal geometry antenna design may help here. Multiple signal generators receiving the same signal input could be combined into a solid state chip that would be inexpensive with mass production. We will discuss financial and power trade-offs below.
: The simplest and easiest thing to do would be to keep the poly-hertz frequencies as close together as feasible. These would have approximately the same transmission coefficient properties. By keeping frequencies close together, the possibility of using one antenna for all frequencies opens up. The antenna would be tuned to a center frequency. The transmitter could use slightly different transmission power for respective frequencies to create an equalized antenna pick up. A disadvantage on top of this, is that the receiver tuners would branch into one antenna creating some signal attenuation problems. Separate lines to separate antennas would have somewhat less problems in this area. The tuned circuitry would be in tune with the antenna. Of course all antennas pick up multiple frequencies. The single tuned circuit would have to deal with these to some extent, but with much less difficulties.
: These add-ons could be used to overcome certain problems, and are not directly related to poly-hertz transmissions. They also apply to playback machines of any sort (DVD, MP3, etc.) Specifically, purists complain that the frequency spread of digital recording is not as good as the old vinyl analog produced record. There is a way to emulate this. Super purists think recordings of any sort are outrageously inferior to live concerts. We may be able to emulate some of the advantages of live performances using digital technology. This would be done by transmitting instrument and seating information that would call up the appropriate enrichment of frequencies into the speakers, produce the proper seating arrangement of flute to violins, etc. These add-ons would have some value in cloaking secure military communications, used as part of the coding itself.
Chapter 2: Visualizations
STANDARD POLY-HERTZ TRANSCEIVER:
Mike (code keyer, audio input) input into multiple audio/code amplifiers.
Multiple or single antenna(s) propagating radio w/ equal or variable power.
Multiple or single antenna(s) receiving radio according to a pattern.
Transmission pattern is synced by pulse, or time, or code.
Parallel lines into series line w/ voltage drop for audio/analog/digital conversion.
Result is lower power transmission for given range of propagation.
PATTERN TYPES OF SYNCHRONIZATION:
Free-form transmission according to pulse:*
*It being unlikely that a receiver tuned to an agreed upon poly-hertz sequence would have a series of pulses not in sync, as the synchronization would be mandatory, the receiver would only lock into these pulses in synchronization. Otherwise, other frequencies operating in the area would not be passed through. We note that modern HDTV screens freeze up rather than go to static as with earlier analog TV. With data burst transmission and cheap memory storage, a delay in reception for some small moment is possible to ensure a steady signal of synchronized pulses, further guaranteeing that the poly-hertz receiver is locked into the proper transmitter.
Synchronized transmission according locking pulse time delay:
**Each poly-hertz station in an area is assigned a time delay to emit pulses for any kind of radio transmission. This is an added insurance that poly-hertz stations will not interfere with each other, and that the receivers are continuously locked into the right station.
Coded transmission pulse appendage:***
***Each pulse sequence is encoded with an appendage that gives the call letters of the station.
You might suppose that multiple frequencies propagation would tie up so many frequencies that it would reduce total transmission stations dramatically for a given band of radio frequency range. But since the pulses are synchronous according to any or every method discussed above, various stations could use overlapping frequencies, as long as their total poly-hertz band was unique for each call letter station. In fact, we might expect more stations to be jammed into a range of overlap by this method. For a sequence of three, you have a permutation of more than three according to whether you use multiple means of discriminating stations.
Frequency Range Enhancement:*
*Embedded in or immediately prior to, or using one channel to send agreed upon or fully transmitted frequency spectrum data, a signal spread could be enhanced at the receiver without sending the equivalent of analog vinyl record spectrum. Various instrument codes are sent with the data (violins, violas, french horns, drums of any type, etc.) with characteristic frequencies that might be picked up by vinyl recordings or heard by the ear at a live performance. These frequencies are reproduced in the receiver based on stored data and propagated with the broadcast stream to emulate vinyl or live performances. You might also categorize singers according to sex, vocal range with characteristics of the vocal frequencies that might be picked up on vinyl or live performance.
Instrumentation Placement Schematic:
A schematic of placement of singer(s), instrument(s) with distances and types of singers and instruments are sent to the receivers. These aid the receiver processor to time delay the audio deliverance to whatever speaker system is encoded in the receiver so as to come as close to a live performance as possible from the perspective of the at home listeners.
ADD-ONS AS MILITARY CODE:
It is clear that the various add-ons could be encoded according to an agreed pattern along with the frequencies of poly-hertz broadcast to encode messages in the form of music of some sort. In addition to the add-ons, the frequencies could be changed at random to an agreed transceiver spread such that eavesdroppers would need to figure out the shifts. Noise in the form of continuous music would cloak actual transmissions. Agreed signals and/or date/time stamped standard traffic would hide what was a message and what was music.
I might add that such purists as Neil Young wish to bring back the fidelity of vinyl records to recording and have been working on methods to do this. Poly-hertz radio could aid this as pointed out above.
We must consider the cost overhead and financial justification for poly-hertz radio in the next chapter.
Chapter 3: Cost Justification
Our purpose is to reduce power transmission of the output signal. We note that sending out three or more signals at the same time has accumulative power output. What are we saving, and might we not be sending out and burning within the station more total power but in increments? Do we not require more separate circuits, antennas to be powered, and subject to the hazard of breakdown?
These are good points. In military terms, or in civilian RF interference areas, it may be well worth it to lower broadcast power over the spectrum to prevent enemy eavesdroppers and to minimize interference in heavy RF civilian traffic areas. We also note that modern computer chip manufacturing loads development cost in the initial chip production. Once this is done the added circuits offer minimal expense. It is possible that new fractal geometry antenna arrays can keep costs down in that area while still providing the advantages of poly-hertz transmission.
We also note that big power items can be susceptible to degraded performance, short lifespan due to heat generated by excessive power output. Smaller units may last longer, be more reliable and cost effective in the long run.
I have laid out a number of advantages in poly-hertz transmission that may very well be cost advantageous in advertisement dissemination, targeted audience to maximize advertisement budget, open up market demand for high end connoisseurs of fine music to offset overhead.
We know that companies are always looking for new ways to sell customers new systems, add-ons to old systems to enhance revenue flow. This is profit justification. If the military sees advantages in my proposed systems, this spreads overhead over a still larger area.
Those who have read related essays of mine on such matters, know what great importance I stress on developing extremely sensitive receivers for every kind of application, military, nano-technology, and in reducing RF pollution. Poly-hertz radio certainly is in line with this useful goal.
I might add that all of this stuff could be added to current MP3, DVD/Radio units for enhanced enjoyment of the media. Just as the microbrewery is growing, so is the low power radio station in face of growing MP3 use, and the need to target audiences for talk shows for targeted political groups. These low power output poly-hertz stations would fit in with that trend. Military units should do everything possible to keep radio transmission power low and to make a systematic, complicated yet easily decoded signal with the right key, keys very difficult or impossible for the enemy to break without spies or psychics (as the outside range of the possible.) What are the odds in a well designed breakdown of transmissions when segmented by military units that a master spy could do any serious damage?
This is all off the top of my head without any detailed cost/price analysis. That is left to others, if others see any merit in my plans. Time, lack of funds, and expertise prohibit any such task on my part at this time.

A brief preface explains essay purpose and why the name poly-hertz is used. Chapter 1 lays out the basic layout of the poly-hertz radio, the problems and methods of the antennas, and explains the add-ons used to emulate vinyl records and live performance audio frequencies at the receivers. Chapter 2 goes into and gives a visualization of the poly-hertz radio, discusses synchronization of signals from several points of view, discusses eliminating radio interference in overlapping markets, how add-ons work, and possible uses in securing military and secure radio traffic. Chapter 3 discusses cost justification. Would we get an overall power reduction, how microchips might keep costs down and prolong service life, how fractal design might make multiple arrays of antennas more compact and cost effective. We note that vendors look for new ways to sell new products to consumers and add-ons to old units. We note the possibility of spreading overhead over military procurement.
