Usually given by the government (FCC). Need to purchase "licence" to use certain frequency-band. Different frequency bands will have different price, depending on the transmission range, bandwidth, channel quality, etc. Choose it to be equal to or sightly larger than

The receiver has to have a carrier signal that is "synchronous" (or equivalently "phase coherent" to the cosine signal used in the transmitter.

If the carrier signal oscillates much faster than x(t), then x(t) is the "envelope" of the wave form, which can be obtained by "half-wave rectification" (see p. 590-594). (1) Quality loss due to half-wave rectification (2) Cannot take negative signals. Namely, However, since the "phase" at "t>0" changes, a shnchronous detector knows that the signal

Unformatted text preview: changes from x(t)= -1 for t<0 to x(t)=1 for t>0. What is the "price" of adding some DC component? Ans: We need additional transmission power at the radio station. Note: Nowadays, asynchronous demodulation is seldom used. An even more practical scenario: An antenna tower may like to broadcast several radio stations at the same time. How to achieve this goal? Ans: Frequency-Division Multiplexing (FDM) Multiplexing: Different users/signal sources would like to "share" the same media with minimal quality degradation. FDM: A special type of multiplexiing such that mutlplexing is achieved by dividing the usage of the media by "frequencies."...
