We discuss a possible method for interference control in radio systems whose desired signal is analog FM. The method utilizes the fact that the desired signal has a nearly constant envelope; with interference present, the composite envelope becomes noisy. A controlling processor measures this additional envelope noise, and iteratively adjusts the complex combining gain of an auxiliary signal to minimize the interference. The expected residual interference remaining after minimization is proportional to the reciprocal of the square of the rms envelope fluctuation of the desired signal. This result was confirmed in a laboratory simulation of an intersecting radio route case using both large and small index FM. Beginning with signal-to-interference ratios of 30 to 40 dB, the controller increased these numbers to about 60 dB, the expected theoretical limit for a signal with 0.1 percent rms envelope fluctuation.
