modulation techniques:


  • AM
  • FM
  • SSB - single sideband
  • PM

  • Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing [OFDM]
  • Phase-shift keying [PSK]

Spread spectrum

  • Direct-sequence spread spectrum [DSSS]

    In telecommunications, direct-sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) is a modulation technique. As with other spread spectrum technologies, the transmitted signal takes up more bandwidth than the information signal that is being modulated. The name 'spread spectrum' comes from the fact that the carrier signals occur over the full bandwidth (spectrum) of a device's transmitting frequency.

    • Used in:

    The United States GPS and European Galileo satellite navigation systems

    CDMA cellular phones

    Cordless phones operating in the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz bands

    802.11 and 802.11b Wi-Fi standards (The faster modes in 802.11g use OFDM, not spread spectrum, although it can fall back to the slower 802.11b modes)

    ZigBee / 802.15.4

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct-sequence_spread_spectrum

  • Frequency-hopping spread spectrum [FHSS]

    Frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) is a method of transmitting radio signals by rapidly switching a carrier among many frequency channels, using a pseudorandom sequence known to both transmitter and receiver.

    The most celebrated invention of frequency hopping was that of actress Hedy Lamarr and composer George Antheil, who in 1942 received patent number 2,292,387 for their "Secret Communications System."

EVP/ITC/EIP theory and practice

EVP and associated phenomena (proof of life after death) proliferate as practise and as anecdote across the global Internet - shared techniques and historical support. The story is traced across colourful figures such as the Swedish Friedrich Jurgenson who first noticed such voices during recordings of birdsong, attracting the attention of Konstantin Raudive (Latvia) (late 50s/60s - Breakthrough 1971), Hans Bender and Hans Otto Koenig making an experimental TV appearance in the early 80s in which a clear voice was heard to say: “Otto Koenig makes wireless with the dead.”

Overview: http://vtf.de/technik.shtml

A survey and classification of EVP/ITC techniques:

1] Inter-frequenz method (Raudive) - tuning to a point between broadcast stations.

2] Microphone recordings (including use of audio frequency white noise)

3] Diode recordings

4] Autotransmission (Raudive): signal generator connected directly to aerial socket of a radio

4] Other methods (ultrasound, light) detailed below.

5] Use of technical apparatus such as:



TEMPEST as a revealing

Any time a machine is used to process classified information electrically, the various switches, contacts. relays, and other components in that machine may emit radio frequency or acoustic energy.

… This problem of compromising radiation we have given the covername TEMPEST.
