RE: Broadband v. baseband ... again?

  • From: Tom Walton

Commercial broadcast radio is, in olde-worlde communications parlance,
*narrowband* modulation of a carrier. Wideband - *not* broadband -
modulation refers to signals with transmitted bandwidth that is a
significant fraction of the carrier frequency.  The baseband signal is
essentially the information-bearing signal, sans any modulation of a
carrier.

Glibness is a poor excuse for sloppiness.

Broadband isn't a speed, it's a signaling architecture. The alternative is
baseband. Ethernet is baseband. Broadcast radio is broadband. Now that you
have the two competing terms, please see your friendly neighborhood search
engine (PSYFNSE).

BTW, silence is a poor excuse for posting a message.
