For each radio station, certain frequencies are allocated to transmit radio waves. The Office of Engineering and Technology (OET) department of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) manages the frequencies assigned by the FCC to radio stations.

Currently, in the United States, the frequency range of 9 kHz and 275 GHz is allocated to radio stations to transmit radio waves and audio signals. These radio frequencies are designated for terrestrial/space radiocommunication services and radio astronomy services under specified conditions cited by the FCC.

There are federal rules and regulations on each broadcasting company, one cannot use more than the allocated frequency range to cover the largest area.
