Antenna is also used for conversion of electrical energy to electromagnetic energy..

The ability of antennas to couple electrical signals with free-space electromagnetic radiation is made possible by the fact that accelerating charges radiate electromagnetic energy.

Antennas, like the simple dipole antenna below, are driven by an oscillating AC current with a frequency corresponding to the frequency of the radiated waves.  This creates a situation where electrons are continuously being accelerated from the top, to the bottom, and back up again.

Conversion of electric energy into electromagnetic waves can be done by an AC current with a desired freq of waves. Hence by changing the current it results in magnetic field , accelerated electron particles radiate in the form of waves ; Electromagnetic waves.

Visible light is an electromagnetic radiation. Other familiar electromagnetic radiations are invisible to the human eye, such as radio waves, infrared light and X-rays.
