Values

The "modulation" value has to be selected according to WARC 79 agreed system for classifying radio frequency signals. An emission designation is of the form BBBBMSIDX.

Character Description Usage Common Values
BBBB bandwidth of signal mandatory 20K0 (20.0kHz); 11K2 (22.2kHz)
M type of modulation (main carrier) mandatory F (FM), A (AM), J (SSB)
S type of signal mandatory 0 (unmodulated), 1 (FSK), 2 (AFSK), 3 (analog signal)
I type of information mandatory A (CW), B (teletype), E (analog esp. voice), F (TV)
