French term or phrase:la diffusion hertzienne
It should read how would you translate la diffusion hertzienne not d'informations. Thanks again,Derek.
Explanation: The literal term "Hertzian diffusion" refers to a "cloud"
of frequencies, or what's known in the EE community
as "frequency agility" (as in "frequency-agile radar").
In transmission systems the term "spread-spectrum"
is used, because the specific carrier frequency varies
depending on the quality of the communication
between the transmitter and the receiver.
