	Over open water, the maximum range could be over 1000 meters.
Over rough terrain, woods, or built-up areas it would be reduced 
considerably. I am experimenting in the UHF portion of the radio 
spectrum, 500 to 3000 Mhz.
	Assuming the energy is emitted from excited molecules over a 
broad range of frequencies like line spectra, its behavior would be 
similar to spread-spectrum radio communications which allow information 
to be extracted from very weak signals. Signal strength would depend on the 
number of emitting molecules per cell and the number of cells involved. The 
threshold for detection by a neuron would also be a question.
	Humans, also, communicate with sound as well as sight but this 
does not preclude telepathic communication.
