JW, other earlier forms of distance communication were also EMF. smoke signals -- light (EMF) reflected from them is intercepted by our eyes semiphore -- see above sign language -- see above

Paul Revere's lanterns -- (one if by land, two if by sea, EMF)

Other than war drums, I cannot think of *any* long distance communication that does not rely on EMF. The ETIs will grok this, I can assure you. spike
