I think I understand the meaning but I can't help but wonder, why "to" not "on" or "of"?

"From here to there" is a common "fixed expression" which describes a range of "things."

"From A to Z," "from monkeys to kangaroos," "from Fords to Rolls Royces," "from fleas to elephants," "from paupers to kings," "from shacks to skyscrapers," etc.
from pairs with to.

from indicates the origin of motion, or the beginning of a range in space or time.

to indicates the destination of motion, or the end of a range in space or time.

A...>>>>>>>> ... Z

to go from A to Z.

When you mentioned "of/on" I suspected you read both points as describing a single location - the origin of your "transmission."

From the center of the town; from the sidewalk on the bridge.

I couldn't think of a quick way to explain the difference.
