1. A method for communicating a magnetic resonance signal from a magnetic resonance reception antenna to an evaluation device, comprising the steps of:

  • receiving a magnetic resonance signal with a magnetic resonance reception antenna at a magnetic resonance frequency;

    supplying said magnetic resonance signal from said magnetic resonance reception antenna to a non-linear reactance;

    emitting auxiliary energy from an auxiliary transmission at auxiliary frequency;

    receiving a part of said auxiliary energy with an auxiliary reception antenna;

    supplying a signal representing said auxiliary energy at said auxiliary frequency from said auxiliary reception antenna to said non-linear reactance;

    in said non-linear reactance, mixing said signal representing said auxiliary energy and said magnetic resonance signal to form a mixed signal having a mixed frequency equal to a sum of said magnetic resonance frequency and said auxiliary frequency;

    supplying said mixed signal to a mixed signal transmission antenna and emitting said mixed signal from said mixed signal transmission antenna; and

    receiving at least a part of said mixed signal with a mixed signal reception antenna and supplying said mixed signal from said mixed signal reception antenna to an evaluation device.
