Abstract : The Federal Communications Commission is requiring a conversion to single sideband on the 2 MHz band. However, on 2182 kHz, because of international agreement; only the A3H mode is authorized after 1 January 1977. Many users of this mode have reported a drastic reduction in range of transmission, using authorized power levels. This thesis is a comparison of power requirements for AM and single sideband, and a discussion of the A3H problem. (Author)
