[time-nuts] The word, "Radiation" as a boogieman...

Unfortunately, there's a lot of money in fear.  Being in broadcast 
engineering I learned as long time ago to never use the words, 
"radiation" or "radiate" a signal when referring to a station's 
signal.  Instead, I refer to it as, "Launch" or "Launched" a 
signal.  When asked about a radio station's radiation I remind them 
about the expression, "radiate a smile".  It simply means, " to send 
out".  If you really want to frighten people, use the expression, "To 
radiate SPAM!"
