6 Spread spectrum systems The dependence of noise power upon bandwidth suggests that we should use the modulation with minimum bandwidth. There is, however, a well-known result (the Shannon– Hartley theorem) that challenges this notion. It provides a relationship between channel capacity C (bits per second), the channel bandwidth B(Hz) and the SNR. 6 Spread spectrum systems and would appear to suggest that increasing the bandwidth will improve capacity. This, however, is moderated by the fact that the noise itself increases with bandwidth and hence the SNR decreases.

Newark, CT: American Radio Relay League. 2 Frequency selective circuits and matching Frequency selective circuits are extremely important elements of an RF system. They often consist of a combination of inductors and capacitors that achieves maximum power transfer at a particular frequency or range of frequencies. Since there will be maximum power transfer to a load when its source has conjugate impedance, such combinations will often be designed to achieve an impedance match at the frequencies to be selected.

The advantages of Morse code are mirrored in modern digital systems in that the data rates can be adjusted to suit the noise conditions and the data coded to optimise efficiency. Another advantage of digital communications arises from the fact that a realistic communications channel will distort the transmitted signal and this can be difficult to remove in the case of analogue modulation. In the case of digital communications, 20 Basic concepts however, the original transmitted signal can be reconstituted providing that the modulation states can be distinguished.
