Spread Spectrum It’s not just for breakfast anymore! Don't blame me, the title is the work of this month's guest columnist, Steve Bible, N7HPR ( While cruising the net recently, I noticed a sudden bump in the number of times Spread Spectrum (SS) techniques were mentioned in the amateur digital areas. While QEX has discussed SS in the past, we haven't touched on it in this forum. Steve was a frequent cogent contributor, so I asked him to give us some background. Steve enlisted in… Expand
Information Theory in Modem Practice
This note will try to look at the interesting interplay between information theory and electrical communication practice which takes place inside modern modems, and which is arguably the fundamental reason behind their impressive performance. Expand
Algoritmes voor Software Radio, geschikt voor gecodeerde transmissie --Software Radio Algorithms for Coded Transmission
This manuscript is the apogee of just under four years spent at the TELIN department, and I was fortunate enough to have two excellent advisors: Marc Moeneclaey and Heidi Steendam. Expand
Electronic Dispersion Compensation For Interleaved A/D Converters in a Standard Cell ASIC Process

Chapter 2 Overview of Mobile Communication Systems
Mobile radio communication began with Guglielmo Marconi's and Alexander Popov's experiments with ship-to-shore communication in the 1890's. Land mobile radiotelephone systems have been used sinceExpand
A Tutorial on Ultra Wideband Modulation and Detection Schemes
We provide in this document a survey on different ultra wideb and modulation and detection schemes. Any comment should be addressed to Seyed Mohammad-Sajad Sadough, S hahid Beheshti University,Expand
Communication and Modulation 3.1 Introduction 3.2 Transmission
Surprisingly, the earliest paper in this chapter originates from as late as 1986, testifying that the ”transmission and modulation community” within the Benelux at first did not identify itself withExpand
COMM-1 and COMM-2 will be identical so that in the event offailure of COMM-1, COMM-2 will act as the main comm~nication link. The communication system of the Iowa satellite In this pa.per, differentExpand
Design of concurrent cooperative transmission systems on software-defined radios
This dissertation is the result of not only countless nights to roll carts out, but also unconditional support from my beloved wife and daughter, and the faith and funding of the US Department of Defense in giving me the opportunity to pursue my doctoral research in an uninterrupted manner. Expand
IPASJ International Journal of Electrical Engineering (IIJEE)
The technology of Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA) has been chosen for mobile communication systems because of numerous advantages. A major advantage is that it can provide aExpand

A considerable portion of the paper describes and illustrates a method for expressing the criteria of distortionless transmission in terms of the steady-state characteristics of the system, and of the minimum frequency range required for transmission at a given speed of signaling. Expand
An introduction to statistical communication theory
This online pronouncement an introduction to statistical communication theory can be one of the options to accompany you as soon as having extra time. Expand
Fiber Optic Communication Systems
Understanding fiber optic transmission systems requires a knowledge of the characteristics of optoelectronic transmitters and receivers, which do not differ much from traditional copper pairs (choice of analog to digital modulation, total attenuation, etc.). Expand
GaAs–GaxAl1−xAs Heterostructure Injection Lasers which Exhibit Low Thresholds at Room Temperature
The electrical and optical properties of GaAs–GaxAl1−xAs injection lasers produced by solution epitaxy are described. These lasers are composed of three layers, n‐GaAs, a thin p‐GaAs layer, and aExpand

The theory of potential distribution and rectification for p-n junctions is developed with emphasis on germanium, resulting in an admittance for a simple case varying as (1 + iωτ p )1/2 where τ p is the lifetime of a hole in the n-region. Expand
Probability of error for optimal codes in a Gaussian channel
A study is made of coding and decoding systems for a continuous channel with an additive gaussian noise and subject to an average power limitation at the transmitter. Upper and lower bounds are foundExpand
XVIII.—On the Functions which are represented by the Expansions of the Interpolation-Theory
Let ƒ(x) be a given function of a variable x . We shall suppose that ƒ(x) is a one-valued analytic function, so that its Taylor's expansion in any part of the plane of the complex variable x can beExpand
Cylindrical Dielectric Waveguide Modes
The propagation of cylindrical dielectric waveguide modes near cutoff and far from cutoff are considered. The relative amounts of Ez and Hz, and the transverse components of the field are determinedExpand
Guided wave optics
Phenomena associated with the propagation and manipulation of light in thin-film dielectric waveguides are presently the object of considerable research effort, directed toward possible applicationsExpand
Measurements show that single‐mode waveguides can be constructed which have radiation losses of about 7 dB/km—very close to the intrinsic material scattering loss. These waveguides, with total lossesExpand
