Link to related work:
Oscillating magnetic dipoles in a small package can radiate electromagnetic energy at one kHz without requiring a half-wavelength antenna (ultra long). This low frequency radiation can pass through ground and water.
Develop an array of magnetic pendulums that will be driven by speaker coils. Modify the bias field to modulate the frequency.
