    The primary reason a high frequency (HF) radio uses single sideband (SSB) modulation is

    • A.

      That fidelity is greatly increased

    • B.

      The system can use a very wide-band pass

    • C.

      The transmitter output power is 10 watts

    • D.

      That it provides many channels on which to operate

    Correct Answer
    D. That it provides many channels on which to operate
    Explanation
    The primary reason a high frequency (HF) radio uses single sideband (SSB) modulation is that it provides many channels on which to operate. SSB modulation allows for more efficient use of the limited available bandwidth in the HF spectrum by eliminating the need for a carrier signal and one sideband. This enables multiple channels to be transmitted within the same frequency range, increasing the number of available communication channels for HF radios.

    • D.

      25.000 MHz

    Correct Answer
    B. 24.999 MHz
    Explanation
    When the lower sideband mode is selected, the transmitted frequency is slightly lower than the carrier frequency. In this case, the carrier frequency is set to 25.000 MHz and it is modulated by a 1000 Hz tone. The lower sideband will be 1000 Hz below the carrier frequency, resulting in a transmitted frequency of 24.999 MHz.
