Cathode modulator

A COLLECTOR-INJECTION MODULATOR is a transistorized version of the plate modulator. It is classified as a high-level modulator, although present state-of-the-art transistors limit them to medium-power applications.


Collector-injection modulator


A CONTROL-GRID MODULATOR is a low-level modulator that is used where a minimum of AF modulator power is desired. It is less efficient than a plate modulator and produces more distortion.



Control-grid modulator

 A BASE-INJECTION MODULATOR is used to produce low-level modulation in equipment operating at very low power levels. It is often used in small portable equipment and test equipment.

Base-injectino modulator

The CATHODE MODULATOR is a low-level modulator employed where the audio power is limited and the inherent distortion of the grid modulator cannot be tolerated.


Cathode modulator

The EMITTER-INJECTION MODULATOR is an extremely low-level modulator that is useful in portable equipment.

Emitter-injection modulator

The primary disadvantages of AM modulation are susceptibility to NOISE INTERFERENCE and the INEFFICIENCY of the transmitter.
