It uses the ITU radio frequency range of electromagnetic waves between 300 MHz and 3000 MHz. It is extensively used in television and radio broadcasting.
UHF equipments have higher frequency which can directly translate the radio waves with shorter antenna. Besides, UHF allows the manufacturers to design more compact equipments. The smaller equipments are more portable and easy to operate. Therefore, they are more desirable as the listeners can easily carry and use them.
Furthermore, the radio waves in UHF can easily penetrate through the barriers like tree, hills, mountains and buildings. However, they have short battery life because of their fast and consistent working.
UHF spectrum is used for land mobile radio systems around the world for military, industrial, commercial and public safety. Besides, many personal radio services use UHF band with different frequencies.

It has a radio frequency range between 30 MHz to 300 MHz.
It is unable to penetrate into the barriers like mountains and trees because of which it often doesn’t work well in the urban areas. However, it consumes very less battery power as compared to other frequency operated radios because of sophisticated working design.
VHF spectrum is widely used for FM broadcasting throughout the world.
