Application of multiplex channels on FM and TV broadcast stations to educational needs

John J. Tary; T. Layne Livingston; Donald R. Macken

Abstract: Most radio systems are designed with bandwidths that are wider than necessary, resulting in wasteful use of the radio spectrum and failure to fully utilize the system capacity. This report reviews efforts to multiplex additional communications channels on FM and TV broadcast channels with possible applications to educational needs.
