suppressed carrier transmission

Amplitude modulation (AM) transmission in which the carrier level is reduced below that required for demodulation. Note 1: Reduction of the carrier level permits higher power levels in the sidebands than would be possible with conventional AM transmission. Note 2: Carrier power must be restored by the receiving station to permit demodulation. Note 3: Suppressed carrier transmission is a special case of reduced carrier transmission.
