The line-item vetoes are usually subject to the possibility of legislative override as are traditional vetoes.
Line-of-sight propagation Radio signals, like all electromagnetic radiation, usually travel in straight lines. However, at low frequencies (below approximately 2Â MHz or so) diffraction effects cause significant ray bending, allowing ray bundles to partially follow the Earth's curvature, thus enabling AM radio signals in low-noise environments to be received well after the transmitting antenna has dropped below the horizon.
