FM Spectral Modeling and FDM/FM Simulation Programs

Report ID
NTIA 83-134
October 01, 1983

This report is concerned with the spectral representation of analog frequency modulated (FM) signals, with particular attention to frequency division multiplexing (FDM)/FM satellite communication systems. The FM spectral modeling and gaussian approximation principles are analyzed and extended to develop computer simulation programs capable of providing representative FM spectra.
