How is information sent to a radio?
The short answer to the question is that information is transmitted to a radio by modulating a carrier signal (by packaging the original information inside a sinusoidal signal). After this packed signal is received by the radio it is unpacked and the original info restored.
Suppose you have random signal to transmit `U=U(t)` that varies over time and a sinusoidal carrier `A_max*sin(omega_0*t)` . There are two ways of modulating this carrier with the original signal.
First way is to modulate the value of the...
