A transmitter modulates an RF carrier and amplifies it for broadcast In general, a transmitter consists of a modulator, an upconverting mixer, and driver and power amplifiers.
- Output Power
- A measure of how strong a signal will be broadcast by the transmitter. This may be expressed in EIRP (effective radiated power) or in dBm or Watts.
- The kind of encoding necessary to modify carrier characteristics in order to send information.
