SUBCOURSE 327, FREQUENCY SYNTHESIS
Radio communication is successful only when the communicators share the
frequency spectrum and when they respect the frequency channel of every other
communicator. Both of these operating requirements are best served by the use of
These secondary frequencies may be developed through selecting
harmonics, heterodyning harmonics, or heterodyning two stable frequencies to create
a third. Moreover, the stability of the synthesized frequencies will be no better
than the stability of the source frequencies.
compatible frequency synthesizers, all communicators should understand their
