Summary:
"This is an introductory text that will equip readers with the necessary tools to study telecommunications further. It explains the fundamentals and background behind digital TV, radio, cell phones, and satellites as well as the legacy analogue transmissions. It covers digital modulation and analogue communications as this is something many people still use (VHF FM for example). The book also clearly explains the  Read more...
