The spectrum of a periodic signal will consist of a fundamental component at the reciprocal of the period and a series of harmonics of this frequency. The fundamental is also called the "first harmonic". It is possible to have a periodic signal where the fundamental is so low in level that it cannot be seen, but the harmonics will still be spaced apart by the fundamental frequency.
