  Amplitude modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The output of this process is a signal with the same frequency as the carrier but with peaks and troughs that vary in proportion to the strength of the modulating signal.
Its output is a signal at the carrier frequency, with peaks that trace the amplitude of the unmodulated signal.
In practice, a capacitor is used to undo the DC shift introduced by the transmitter and to eliminate the carrier frequency by connecting the signal peaks.

 Carrier wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carrier waves are used when transmitting radio signals to a radio receiver.
Frequency modulation (FM) and amplitude modulation (AM) signals are both transmitted with the help of carrier frequencies.
The frequency for a given radio station is actually the carrier wave's center frequency.

 Digital Synthesis
These sidebands are symmetrically spaced about the frequency of the carrier[3], and the size of the spaces is equal to the frequency of the modulator.
If the frequencies of the carrier and modulator are not rationally related, the tone will have a less definite pitch, and will have a rich sound.
By applying an envelope function to the amount of modulation or the frequencies of carrier and modulator, sounds can be produced that have a life and excitement far beyond that available with the older synthesis methods.

 Radio Broadcast Signals
The carrier frequency is directly modulated with the sum of the left and right channel audio signals.
An electromagnetic carrier wave which is carrying a signal by means of amplitude modulation or frequency modulation can transfer that signal to a carrier of different frequency by means of a process called heterodyning.
This process produces a beat frequency equal to the difference between the frequencies, and this difference frequency constitutes a third carrier which will be modulated by the original signal.

 AM transmitter principles
The frequency of 95 kilohertz, for example, is heterodyned with the frequency of 100 kilohertz and the sum and difference frequencies are again produced.
However, when the carrier and sidebands are combined in a single impedance and viewed simultaneously with an oscilloscope, the resultant waveform appears as shown in figure 1-39.
Carrier assignments start at 540 kilohertz and continue in a succession of 10-kilohertz increments until the upper limit of the broadcast band is reached.

 Frequency Modulation
A Frequency Modulated wave is a sine wave with a periodically varying instantaneous frequency and a constant amplitude.
If this were an FM radio transmission, the carrier frequency would be the station you tune to, and you would hear a pure audio tone at the modulation frequency, with a loudness derived from the modulation depth.
The stationary fl wave is the strong carrier frequency; the weaker red and blue ones are lower and higher frequencies.

 Electromagnetic Spectrum
Carrier frequencies of 540 to 1600 kHz are assigned at 10 kHz intervals.
The frequencies from the top end of the AM band to the bottom of the VHF television band are generally called the "short wave" range, a historical term.
The RF frequency range around 40-50 MHz is important as the proton resonance frequency range used in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

 Superheterodyne Receivers
These are beat frequencies (normally the beat frequency is associated with the lower side-band, the difference between the two).
It is in fact, the local oscillator (a operating at radar frequencies) of the superheterodyne radar receiver that makes your radar detector detectable by the police (in VA for example, where the use of radar detectors are illegal).
Frequently, the receiver bandwidth is some fraction of the carrier frequency.

This transmitting antenna radiates the carrier waves in all directions, and the waves travel through the air to antennas connected to television sets or relay stations.
The amplitude of one carrier wave is modulated to carry the video signal (amplitude modulation, or AM) and the frequency of another wave is modulated to carry the audio signal (frequency modulation, or FM).
The frequency of carrier waves is measured in hertz (Hz), which is equal to the number of wave peaks that pass by a point every second.

 Primer: Sampling Oscilloscope Techniques
Distortion occurring at the third harmonic, the sums and differences of three fundamental frequencies, or the combination of the second harmonic of one signal and the fundamental of another, is called third-order distortion.
Disable the carrier for the channel-under-test at the headend.
In that case, either the modulator's unmodulated carrier level must be increased to equal its peak output when modulated or a substitution carrier, equal in amplitude to the peak of the modulated carrier, must be used.

 [No title]
Frequency modulation refers to periodic changes in the frequency of the carrier wave.
Audio frequencies from a source that fall into the range of 200 Hz - 5 kHz are used to amplitude modulate a carrier wave with frequency in the range 535-1605 kHz.
For AM broadcasting, the rate at which the amplitude of the carrier changes is proportional to the frequency of the modulating (audio) signal, while the degree to which the carrier wave amplitude changes is related to the amplitude of the modulating signal.

 8.6: FM Systems
This disadvantage is also reflected in the fact that the FM function requires a wider range of frequencies near the carrier frequency to achieve the modulation over that required with AM systems.
The difference between the upper frequency of the required range, which is fc+fm and the lower frequency of the range, which is fc-fm, is called the bandwidth requirements of the system.
Thus, an AM system broadcasting audio frequencies up to 10 kilohertz on a carrier frequency of 1 megahertz would require frequencies after modulation of from 990,000 hertz to 1,010,000 hertz for a band width of 20,000 hertz.

The modulator is the device which piggybacks (or modulates) the signal information onto the carrier frequency, which is then broadcast.
In the early days of radio engineering, radio frequency energy was generated using arcs or mechanical alternators (of which a rare example survives at the SAQ transmitter in Grimeton, Sweden).
Often the transmitter frequency is not the frequency produced by the oscillator, but one of its harmonics.

Specifically, the Commission stated that an existing private operational fixed licensee operating on frequencies shared with common carriers, i.e., frequencies in the 4, 6, 10, 11, 18, 31, and 38 GHz bands, may elect common carrier status simply by notifying the Commission of its change in status by filing the appropriate form and tariff information.
We find that Westinghouse has failed to demonstrate that the underlying purpose of the rules will not be served or would be frustrated by their application in its particular case, and that grant of the waiver is in the public interest.
In addition, Westinghouse did not submit any information that indicates that it cannot transmit common carrier traffic at another higher-frequency band where such communications are permitted, or that migration to another band would result in degradation of service quality that would be unacceptable for the communications carried on the system.

 EDN Access--06.05.97 Modulator draws just 5 mA at 2.7V
The traditional method for producing SSB signals is to modulate a carrier and then filter the output to remove the unwanted sideband and carrier frequencies.
No filtering is necessary to suppress the carrier and sideband frequencies because frequency cancellation is inherent in modulation.
Measurements of the circuit operating with an oscillator frequency of 142 MHz and a carrier of 71 MHz indicate carrier suppression of ­27 dB, which is 8 dB short of the typical data-sheet performance specification.

 NIST Calibration Services: Tests of PM/AM Noise Measurement Systems
The calibrated PM or AM noise is typically constant with Fourier frequency offset to +0.1 dB out to 3 % of the carrier frequency.
Given two or more oscillators, synthesizers, frequency multiplier/dividers, or amplifiers, relative phase noise can be measured with low uncertainty and the frequency for the measurement is not as restrictive as above.
Also, the 1 pulse per second output of atomic frequency standards can be measured with a standard uncertainty of 0.5 ns given an adequately defined pulse.
