Sinusoidal message transmission up to 1.5 GHz is performed based on synchronization of chaos in experimental nonlinear systems of semiconductor lasers with optical feedback. In the chaotic systems the message is almost entirely suppressed in the receiver output, even if the message has nonnegligible power in the transmitter.
