 I forgot to put the link in. http://www.k6mhe.com/n7ws/Speech_1.PDF Hi Bill, This is not a problem of not producing the square wave itself. A perfect square wave has all of the odd harmonics in phase. When you modulate an SSB transmitter with a square wave the phase of the fundamental and harmonics shift. This produces another fundamental that sums together. To pass an ideal square wave signal in an SSB transmitter requires infinite bandwidth and infinite amplitude. Though the square wave is not the ideal one it still requires a high amplitude capability. This is pointed out in the Collins "fundamentals of SSB". Here is a link to an article on the subject by Wes Stuart N7WS. 73 Gary K4FMX > -----Original Message----- > From: amps-bounces@contesting.com [mailto:amps-bounces@contesting.com] > On Behalf Of Fuqua, Bill L > Sent: Friday, January 06, 2012 2:17 AM > Cc: amps@contesting.com > Subject: Re: [Amps] IMD > > The spikes at the beginning and ends of a square wave are produced > when higher frequency harmonics are removed such as by using > a low pass filter.
