Renaming[edit]

I suggest that this category is renamed to Category:Modulation methods. I suppose that this would require that someone performs manual modification of every article in this category. Mange01 14:31, 15 November 2006 (UTC)


I agree. Since the last post on this was quite a while back has there been any change in thinking? Else I would go ahead and do the modifications. Sepia tone 05:15, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

"modulation mode" is a technical term used in the industry. While "modulation method" might be descriptive, it's not as common in use. --ssd (talk) 22:37, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Where does the requirement for the modulation method preventing signal degradation come from?[edit]

I'm not familiar with any requirement that a specific modulation mode prevent signal degradation before reception. I thought that the combined choice of frequency (as relates to MUF and ionosphere conditions) and modulation mode as a byproduct minimizes signal degradation, but I fail to see how that could be a requirement.

English[edit]

The very first two sentences are gobbledygook.

Signals sent by radio (or over long wires or when stored on magnetic media) must be modulated with some method that prevents their signal from degrading before the signals can be received. A transmitter and receiver must use the same mode of modulation to successfully communicate.

should be:

Signals sent by radio, or over long wires or when stored on magnetic media, must be modulated by some method that prevents them from degrading before being received. A transmitter and receiver must use the same mode of modulation in order to communicate successfully. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.150.90.233 (talk) 22:36, 21 October 2011 (UTC)
