Shadia Williams Patrick Behr Naman Batt 1 Modulation is a impressing a low frequency intelligence signal onto a higher frequency carrier signal. 2 A carrier frequency is a frequency of the un modulated electrical wave at the output of an amplitude modulated transmitter 3 Without modulation the waves would interfere with each other. It is also impossible to transmit at that low of a frequency. 4 Peak value, angular velocity, and phase angle. 5 300kHz-30Ghz 6 -7.95 dbuV dBuV=20Log^10(V^2/1uV) 7 V=vPR 2.45V 8 3.87 dB=10Log^10(p^2/P^1) 9 30dBm 0dBm -10dBm -16dBm 0dBm=.001W 106.3W, 8dBW 0dBm=.001W 11.245mV 0dBm=.001W 1234dBuV

Electrical noise defined as any undesired voltages or currents that ultimately end up appearing in the receiver output. A communications receiver is a very sensitive instrument that is given a very small signal at its input that must be greatly amplified before it can possibly drive a speaker that is why it is so troublesome to a communication receiver. 16. The noise present in a received radio signal that has been introduced in the transmitting medium is termed External Noise. The noise introduced by the receiver is termed Internal Noise. 17. External Noise: Human-Made Noise: It is often produced by spark- producing mechanism such as engine ignition systems, fluorescent lights, and commutators in electric motors. This noise is actually “radiated” or transmitted from its generating sources through the atmosphere in the same fashion that a transmitting antenna radiates desirable electrical signals to a receiving antenna. This process is called wave propagation. Atmospheric Noise: It is caused by naturally occurring disturbances in the earth’s atmosphere, with lighting discharges being the most prominent contributors. Space Noise: It arrives from outer space. It is pretty evenly divided in origin between the sun and all the other stars. That originating from our star (the sun) is termed solar noise. All the other stars also generate this space noise, and their contribution is

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
