There are many types of transmitters. Thesimplest is the Amplitude Modulated (AM) transmitter. This is an oscillator that cycles at a predetermined frequency. This oscillator puts out a level of energy that is varied by the sounds that you desire to transmit. This variance is done from 100% of the signal to 0%. The output then is two frequencies combined one at the stations frequency and one at the frequency of the sound transmitted. The receiver throws away the transmission frequency and amplifies the frequency of the sound.

Bottom line is you only hear the sound stuck into the transmitter.

F.M. is the same as AM but instead of varying power, we vary the frequency with the desire sounds we want to hear. The receiver sees that variance and converts that to sound.

Phase shift, DSB, SSB and the others are merely more complex variances to these basics.

Does Police radar work at night?

Yes!!! Radar uses its own emitter. To the receiver it is always night until the transmitter is tuned on. Turning on the transmitter is like turning on a flashlight.

Is any type of transmitter is appropriate for mini RC car?

Any type of transmitter is fitting for the mini RC cars, all though the transmitter may need to be new because their company has made some changes. The old transmitters are slightly out-dated. So if you use an old transmitter it would not work. Hope this helped. •~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~••~•

How does microwaves travel to make a phone work?

They travel just like the radio waves that make your car radio work. They are sent from a transmitter - and picked up by your phone - the phone sends radio waves back to the transmitter to complete the circuit.

How does a wireless transmitter work?

A wireless transmitter is made up of magnets which dispatch a magnetic field that continually flips polarity back and forth, thus creating a radio wave which transmits.
