Modulation Studies for IGOSS
Abstract: Modulation techniques for high frequency (HF) data transmission for the Integrated Global Ocean Station System (IGOSS) are discussed. Noncoherent frequency-shift -keying (NCFSK) and time-differential phase-shift -keying (TDPSK) systems are preliminarily selected as preferred systems. Performances of these preferred systems are discussed both in the presence of noise and/ or interfering signal and under adverse propagation conditions. A serious drawback inherent in a TDPSK system under adverse propagation conditions is pointed out. Frequency tolerance, frequency stabilization techniques, and selectivity of receivers are also discussed.
