i have been a "two way" radio technician for 6 years.i know from experience
that it takes very little to make an effective radio: basically, a power
source, some assortment of signal producing components such as resistors,
capacitors, inductors, etc, and an antenna.
even a regular home pc has enough hardware inside it to manufacture several
simple fm transceivers from. an ai will be on an extremely powerful
computer, and it would be child's play for it to reroute some of its voltage
to become signal voltage,and some of the hardware it runs on to be an
antenna. voila, the ai flies all over the planet...
