Analytical Analysis of Disturbed Radio Broadcast

Jan Reimes, Marc Lepage, Frank Kettler, Jörg Zerlik, Frank Homann, Christoph Montag


Analogue radio broadcast signals are often disturbed in various ways as experienced in driving situations. These disturbances cover typical, short term "pops", longer noise bursts, short term "mutes", insertion of so-called "HighCut", i.e. the attenuation of higher frequencies to mask disturbances or noticeable stereo/mono switching. These disturbances can be separated in two parts: they are caused either by bad reception conditions (loss of transmission energy, interferences, multiple transmission paths etc.) or by implemented masking techniques in FM receivers in order to improve audio quality.
