Is there an electromagnetic transducer to melt ice?

Hi

I have a project to were I would like to melt ice from several feet away. Is there an electromagnetic transducer that I can operate to melt ice? What resonate frequency would I need to use? Any ideas?

Thanks

I was thinking something that can go a bit further like microwave or radio wave transducer but don't know how to make such a device. Any ideas?

Making a radio/microwave transmitting device powerful enough to melt ice in a reasonably short time is extremely dangerous, as it can cause severe internal injuries without you being immediately aware of them. As such, it goes against PF rules regarding dangerous activities. Thread locked.
