- ‘The structure allows to the domains a hinge-bending mode that appears in the native state as vibrations at very high frequencies.’
- ‘Gagarin used radios that transmitted via the very high frequency, high frequency, and shortwave bandwidths.’
- ‘The very high frequency is dependent on the length of the repeat.’
- ‘Ground forces using FM radios that cannot talk to F - 16s overhead because the airmen have only ultra-high frequency or very high frequency radios.’
