Does the dipole send out light at a certain spinning speed?

  1. Jun 1, 2007 #1
    When I got a stick with opposite electric charges on both ends ( a macroscopic dipole) and start slowly spinning it, I get radio waves.

    What happens when I keep increasing the spinning velocity, do I get the whole spectra of em waves? Does the dipole send out light at a certain spinning speed?

    thanks
