Question 5: In 1982, the ________ (ITU) designated the various types of amplitude modulation as follows:
SwitzerlandUnited NationsUniversal Postal UnionInternational Telecommunication Union

Question 6: A simple detector at the transmitter output (which can be little more than a loosely coupled ________) recovers the audio signal, and this is used as negative feedback to the audio modulator stage.
DiodeSemiconductor deviceElectronic componentVacuum tube

Question 7: This approach is widely used in practical medium power transmitters, such as AM ________.
Amateur radioWalkie-talkieTwo-way radioRadiotelephone

Question 8: A wide range of different circuits have been used for AM, but one of the simplest circuits uses anode or collector modulation applied via a ________.
Transformer typesTransformerNikola TeslaInductor

Question 9: In terms of the positive frequencies, the transmission bandwidth of AM is twice the signal's original (________) bandwidth—since both the positive and negative sidebands are shifted up to the carrier frequency.
