    This paper introduces a novel concept of distributed up-link for digital television via satellite. A number of broadcasters situated in different geographical locations can independently have direct access to the satellite for multiplexing and direct-to-home transmission. The system utilises advanced on-board processing techniques for the multiplexing of signals into a single multiprogramme transp... View full abstract»

    A medium frequency AM asymmetric vertical dipole for a 50 kW broadcast station was constructed during June 1994. This kind of vertical dipole operates without the 120 wires classical artificial ground plane. In order to analyze its behavior extensive measurements of the near and far radiated fields were carried out. Those results were compared to standard monopoles to have a better understanding o...

    The characteristics of the signal emitted from the vestigial side band ATV digital terrestrial broadcast transmitter is examined as regards the parameters which determine the quality of the broadcast signal. Only inband characteristics are examined. The band edge characteristics-both upper and lower-are defined in terms of the frequency domain and the resulting time domain data pulse shape is exam...

    Currently there is a growing demand towards interactive multimedia services using high capacity hybrid fibre-coax (HFC) CATV-networks. With regards to the realisation of upstream traffic, many problems occur with the accumulation of noise due to the tree and branch architecture of the coaxial access network. The properties of the spectral noise signature resulting from the accumulation of noise ha... View full abstract»

    A NASA research program has been instituted which seeks to replace the present hydraulic and pneumatic control systems on commercial aircraft with electro-optical and electro-mechanical devices. This new technology should be lighter, cheaper, and easier to maintain, but may be susceptible to high-amplitude externally-generated electromagnetic fields. To determine the expected level of interference... View full abstract»

    We deal with some of the main blocks which consist a stereophonic RDS modulation system. As such we consider the 19 kHz pilot tone of the FM stereo, the 38 kHz subcarrier modulated by the difference of the two stereo channels and the 57 kHz subcarrier of the RDS digital signal. Also, a digital substitute of the biphase signal generator required for coding and shaping of the RDS data preceding the ... View full abstract»
