    Thank you for the many informative replies to my OP on SA blind spots.

    Can anyone recommend what would be the most up-to-date textbook that
    is dedicated exclsively to the use of SA's on modern communication
    signals?

    I suppose there are texts, but I know for sure there are lots of very
    good applications notes available for free. Try Rohde and Schwarz,
    Agilent and Anritsu, for example. Obviously, these are written from
    the viewpoint of selling you equipment, but for sure they will tell
    you about the capabilities of the equipment to detect and demodulate
    modern communications signals. After all, that's a key reason for
    sales of such analyzers. These ap notes will tell you about the
    capabilities of real instruments, and how to get the most out of them.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    I think you are alluding to SIGINT.

    Generally you analyze signals in their baseband. That is, modulation
    schemes can be done on any frequency. [Granted, some bands are not
    suitable for some modulation schemes, like FM where the AM broadcast
    band sits.]
