Principles of Radio: A Laboratory Experiment
Kraftmakher, Yaakov
Physics Education, v37 n5 p417-421 Sep 2002
An experiment is proposed for learning the principles of radio. A simple radio receiver illustrates amplitude modulation and demodulation, the selectivity of a receiver and the features of a directional antenna. Both normal and computerized versions of the experiment are described. The computerized experiment employs the "ScienceWorkshop" data-acquisition system with the "DataStudio" software. (Contains 6 figures.)
