I'm borrowing the concept of a radio and having fun with space-time, my argument is that since gravitational wave have amplitude and frequency it is very much similar to electromagnetic wave such as radio wave. I can imagine why any DJ would quickly abandon this idea as for me I can't afford LIGO, anyway if it is possible what kind of noise can interfere with a AM gravitational wave signal beside itself?

  • $\begingroup$ You should note that the notion of controlling one of those properties and varying only the other is a very artificial one and it mostly only appears in engineered devices. Indeed the signal that LIGO reported on recently modulates in both properties simultaneously (as expected from the models, natch). $\endgroup$ – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Apr 5 '16 at 3:47

Creating detectable gravitational waves would be extremely challenging. If that can be achieved, then, modulation (AM, or FM) would not be that hard. The first part itself, is not practical.
