AbstractThis paper discusses the performance of pulse code modulation/frequency modulation (PCM/FM), pulse code modulation/phase modulation (PCM/PM) and phase shift keying (PSK) in the “real-world” of range telemetry. The topics addressed include: 1. Radio frequency (RF) spectra 2. Bit error rate (BER) versus pre-detection signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) 3. Peak carrier deviation 4. Premodulation and receiver predetection filtering 5. PCM codes 6. Magnetic recording The purpose of this paper is to provide the reader with information needed to choose the best modulation method, PCM code, premodulation filter bandwidth and type, receiver settings, and recording method for a particular application.
