Because ZEVS works at an extremely low frequency of 82 Hertz, it only achieves extremely low signal data rates, but with a wavelength of around 3700 km, its signals penetrate the water as deep as possible - up to 300 m. Submarines dive into this depth in order to “hide” from reconnaissance using various methods. The frequency deviation for signal transmission is also in a very low range with a maximum of slightly more than 2 Hz.
ZEVS uses a ground dipole as a transmitting antenna , which is about 60 kilometers long.
