The authors examined certain aspects of a cellular radio system that are closely tied to the modulation method used, namely, channel sounding, interference immunity, signal quality, information transfer rate, and channel transparency. They compare the spectral efficiency of current cellular systems based on nonlinear frequency modulation with a system using linear single-sideband modulation for a given grade and type of service. The major conclusion is that SSB linear modulation can provide at least a four- to five-fold improvement in spectral efficiency over the current FM cellular system with no degradation in performance
