  Pilot signal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In telecommunication, a pilot is a signal, usually a single frequency, transmitted over a communications system for supervisory, control, equalization, continuity, synchronization, or reference purposes.
In FM stereo broadcasting, a pilot tone of 19 kHz is used to indicate that there is stereophonic information on a subcarrier at 38 kHz (19×2, the second harmonic of the pilot).
A guard band of ±4 kHz (15-23 kHz) is used to protect the pilot tone from interference from the baseband audio signal (50 Hz-15 kHz), and from the lower sideband of the stereo subcarrier (23-53 kHz).

 Pilot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pilot is the name of a pop music group best known for their 1975 top-20 hit song "Magic".
Many appliances that use natural gas or propane as their fuel utilize a pilot light, which is a small outlet of gas kept continually burning and generally used to light the larger burners on the appliance.
In telecommunications, a pilot signal (or pilot tone) is used as an indicator, such as to indicate the presence of FM stereo or AM stereo.

 Pilot signal detection system using band reject filter - US Patent 5986499   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
The pilot signal with distortion at the output of the coupler 28 is fed to gain & phase circuit 34 whose output is fed to amplifier 36 whose output is applied to coupler 38.
The amplitude of the pilot signal is typically relatively small at the output of the feed forward distortion reduction system because of the cancellation of the pilot and the relative amplitude of the pilot signal with respect to the amplitude of the in-band carrier signal(s).
The pilot signal and the carrier signal on the main signal path 16 are applied to the amplifier 12 whose output comprises the amplified signal S, the amplified pilot signal P and distortion D produced by the amplifier 12.

 Digital signal reproducing apparatus with capstan servo control based on adjacent track pilot signal crosstalk ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
This signal is used for the purpose of detecting the levels of crosstalk resulting from the two tracks adjacent to the track being reproduced, so as to obtain the difference between the levels of such crosstalk as a tracking error signal.
The signal in zone I is due to the pilot signal on the on-track, and those in zones II and III result from the crosstalk of the pilot signal on a track with the odd-number frame (B) and a track with the even-number frame (B), respectively.
Based on the level of this pilot signal on the on-track, the difference between the levels of crosstalk of pilot signals from the two adjacent tracks is adjusted in such a way as to compensate for the variation in the difference in crosstalk levels due to the difference in output level for each rotary head.

 Pilot Flags   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
In 1899 the International Code of Signals Committee wrote; "We recommended that flag S when hoisted alone should be an international pilot signal signifying 'I want a pilot.' At present the single flag signal to be used by British vessels requiring a pilot is the Union Jack with a white border.
We gather that foreign maritime powers are generally agreed as to the desirability of there being an internationally recognised single-flag signal for a pilot and we are of the opinion that flag S (blue centre with white border) is well adapted for the purpose.
The white-bordered Union Jack ceased to be a signal for a pilot in 1970, which obviously removes one objection to its use as a civil jack.

 RFA300 Measurements
Because the signal is noise-like, it is not possible to narrow the bandwidth and lower the signal amplitudes to extend the dynamic range like it is with sine wave-type signals (as you narrow the bandwidth the noise-like signal falls in amplitude also).
To compute the curve, the gain of the signal a few constellation units from the origin is considered to be the correct value and variations elsewhere are shown with reference to this nominal value.
Likewise, the 8-VSB signal is measured in constellation units, where one constellation unit is the distance between the origin and the first constellation state along the real axis (with the pilot offset removed) regardless of its absolute amplitude in volts.

 (WO 03/090373) DYNAMIC PILOT FILTER BANDWIDTH ESTIMATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
An incoming signal containing a pilot signal is filtered using non-identical filters, and the magnitudes of the filtered signals are compared to estimate a bandwidth of the pilot signal.
Based on the comparison of the filtered signal magnitudes, which may be compensated to remove the noise contribution, the parameters of a filter applied to the incoming signal to isolate the pilot signal are varied.
The non-identical filters used in the pilot signal bandwidth estimation may be IIR or FIR filters having different passbands, or may be a correlation of the incoming signal with sinusoids of different frequencies.

 LCC International, Inc.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
This measurement essentially ignores the overall strength of the signal and instead concentrates on how much better the desired pilot signal is to the noise that conspires to interfere with it.
The pilot scanners can be used in the base stations installation process to determine how the cells are working together, what the effects of interference between base stations are on the noise floor, how well the neighbour lists are optimised, etc. This work could be done well before the deployment of services.
The number of pilot signals with significant power that results in pilot pollution is determined by the number of fingers in the Rake receiver.

 Discussion about the dimensions of the pilot jack   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
The White-Bordered Signal Jack was adopted as a signal flag by the Royal Navy in 1826 and continued in use until 1948 when the white border appears to have been about 1/7th of the breadth of the flag, as seen on this image showing International Mike over Signal Jack on HMS Comus, August 1946.
Later, the fact that the flag, as a pilot signal, had been more square than oblong was forgotten, and it was assumed that it had always existed in its elongated form.
The white-bordered Union Jack was still a legal signal for a pilot, and remained so until 1970, but I doubt that many ships bothered to carry a special flag, that could be used only as a pilot signal, when one of the International Code flags could be used instead.

 Method for using a non-orthogonal pilot signal with data channel interference cancellation invention
This is accomplished by regenerating interference terms with respect to the non-orthogonal pilot signal and subtracting them from the demodulated data signal.
To separate out the signals for a particular user at a receiver, cross correlation is performed on the received signal using the same unique user code sequence.
Here, the signal-to noise is the energy per chip per interference density, or E.sub.c/I.sub.0 where E.sub.c is the energy per chip and I.sub.0 is the interference density.

It is critical that the percentage of power allocated to the pilot signal transmitted by each base station be fixed properly to ensure the ability of the CDMA network to support subscriber demand.
Since the pseudonoise (PN) signal of the pilot channel is a priori information, the receiver searches for pilot signals by digitally correlating the received signal with this known, locally generated pilot signal.
Because the period of the pilot signal is relatively long, methods were developed to keep the receiver's update period as small as possible without compromising its detection ability.

 Basics of Stereo Multiplexing for FM Transmission
There is also the issue of somehow adding a tiny signal in the MPX signal that informs the Receiver that the incoming signal is in Stereo, so it should decode information higher than 15 KHz as that's not just Audio, it is the L-R signal hidden somehow.
The 38 KHz signal generated by the Receiver will be in phase with the 19 KHz pilot tone, so in case the Transmitter uses a 38 KHz Subcarrier in phase with the Pilot Tone, the Receiver would be able to exactly regenerate the missing AM SubCarrier.
As a 30 KHz signal is 8 KHz away from the 38 KHz AM carrier, a stereo receiver would be within its rights to reproduce a 8 KHz tone during decoding process.
