Gravitational field modulation of a moving mass

In summary, if a mass is moving, it will have a wavelength and emit gravitational waves. The gravitational field of the mass will be modulated accordingly. If the mass moves uniformly for infinite time, the wavelength will be infinite and the frequency of the wave will be zero, similar to an EM wave when DC passes through a coil.

If a mass is moving it has a wavelength - my question is, is the gravitational field of the mass then modulated accordingly ?

If a mass is made to move backwards and forwards then it emits gravitational waves, yes.

And if the mass has been and will be moving uniformly for infinite time then the wavelength will be infinite and the frequency content of the wave will be zero. It's the same as for the EM wave when DC passes through a coil.
