I wouldn't imagine radio waves in the kHz and MHz ranges could effect your sleep. Even if you consider the brain resonating sympathetically it wouldn't be likely, being that brain waves rarely go above 100Hz. I'm by no means an expert, and this is speculation based on a quick bit of research, so i could very much be wrong. Maybe it's something simpler like a low buzz from a power supply causing sleeping problems?

. If it's a receiver, probably not unless you hold it next to your head. Even that is doubtful. You may get some harmonics and misc buzzes that are barely audible that could disturb your sleep, but not the radio waves themselves. . I've slept in radio stations with the transmitters less than 10 feet away. :)
