Overview

In Modulation - Volume I - Amplitude Modulation, you'll learn ...

  • Sine wave characteristics and how they can be acted upon
  • What is heterodyning and how it is applied to modulation
  • How "on-off" keying of a continuous wave (CW) carrier frequency was used in the early days of electrical communications and is still in use today to modulate a carrier
  • How modulation of an electric current by complex waveforms, the demodulation of the resulting wave, and recovery of the original waveform is used to transmit the human voice
  • How a typical plate modulator operates
