The NTSC television signal format uses frequency modulation of a 4.5 MHz sub carrier to attach the TV audio signal to the baseband video signal which extends from 0 Hz to 4.2 MHz.
The maximum frequency of the baseband audio signal is 10 KHz and the bandwidth allocated to the FM audio signal is 100 kHz.
a. What is the peak frequency deviation of the FM signal?
b. What is the FM improvement in dB?
c. Give two advantages of FM over DSB-LC AM in this application
d. Is the FM signal wideband or narrowband FM?

Bandwidth: Typical telephone link, NTSC video signal

A. What is the bandwidth of a typical telephone link? Give two advantages and two disadvantages of using this bandwidth compared to a much wider bandwidth, such as the 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz of a CD recording.

b. Why can't a video signal such as an NTSC analog television signal be transmitted over a two km length of loaded twisted pair cable with a frequency range 300 Hz to 3,400 Hz? What is the bandwidth occupied by an NTSC video signal?
