Sending a signal from one place to another is the accepted medium for communications. Thus communicating internationally through radio frequencies is a way of using others’ sovereign spaces. A simple wave could travel beyond the physical borders of a state, and whether it is allowed or not to do so it continues on its way. Therefore, any sovereign space has the right to understand what is going through their sovereign space. In this respect placing what De Landa (cf. 1991) would term a ‘machinic phylum’ to search the electromagnetic spectrum is an option, and any other sovereign power may choose to do so. These activities mostly go beyond the sovereign rights of states since there is no sovereign claim over the content conveyed through air. Consequently, interception or radiolocation (radar) activities could abuse the sovereign rights of others while exceeding one’s own.
