Quoting part of fourth para:

"The formula for converting frequency to wavelength in meters is wavelength in meters equals 300 divided by frequency in megahertz. (T3B06)

Quoting fifth para:

"The approximate wavelength of radio waves is often used to identify the differnt frequency bands. (T3B07). For example, when we refer to the 2 meter band, we are referring to the amateur radio band that spans 144 MHz to 148 MHz. A radio wave with a frequency of 148 MHz, would have a wavelength of 2.02 meters. "

I do not understand this. Can someone please translate this into a math formula? or something to explain it better? I did not follow it at all.

....does this mean 300 divided by 144 MHz = meters? (2.08 meters)

...or 300 divided by 148 =2.03 meters??

...Where does 2.02 come from? does it matter?

In the paragraphs directly above it, the approximate velocity of a radio wave as it travels through free space was noted as 300,000,000 meters per second.

Thank you,
