  author={Edwin H. Armstrong},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
A new method of reducing the effects of all kinds of disturbances is described. The transmitting and receiving arrangements of the system, which makes use of frequency modulation, are shown in detail. The theory of the process by which noise reduction is obtained is discussed and an account is given of the practical realization of it in transmissions during the past year from the National Broadcasting Company's experimental station on the Empire State Building in New York City to Westhampton…

Performance Evaluation of a Frequency Modulated Spread-Spectrum System
This thesis investigates the performance of a wireless local loop system that uses the frequency modulation with the CDMA technique and proposes an adaptive FM CDMA interference cancelation technique and a digital modulation with CDMA as ways to improve system capacity.
A New Approach to the Design of a Phase Modulator with Low Nonlinear Distortion
A phase modulator is described in which a linear segmental approximation of the sinusoidal function is used and performance results in terms of a phase difference from perfect linearity and signal-to-distortion ratio are given.
