  1. Hi:

    One major reason the luminance signals of television are broadcasted on
    an AM-carrier instead of FM is because FM requires large amounts of
    bandwidth. Is there a way to use FM video without hogging so much bandwidth?

    Quotes from
    Does this mean that Quadrature Modulation and Constellation Modulation
    can -- at least in theory -- be applied to FM video so that excessive
    bandwidth is not needed? If so, then what would be the minimum
    radio-frequency required to transmit the video signal?


  2. No.

    These are like special modified forms of AM.

    You can only use these to reduce bandwidth of an FM signal in the same way
    that you can use AM to reduce the bandwidth of an FM signal. It just won't
    be FM any more.

    Okay now you're actualy irritating me quite a LOT.

    Please, do yourself a favour: buy an Amazon book voucher and shut up.
