How to use "Sky wave" in context?

What is a sky wave? It is a type of wireless broadband transmission in the 3 GHz frequency range. The sky wave frequency range is used for long-range transmissions because the atmospheric reflections of microwaves cause limited interference in this frequency range. These reflections bounce off the top of high mountains, for example, and then hit the Earth's atmosphere, which re-radiates the microwaves. These microwave reflections then bounce off the clouds and enter our terrestrial radio spectrum, which limits the range of sky wave transmissions.
