Practical Digital Wireless Signals by Earl McCune

Do you need to know what signal type to select for a wireless application? Quickly develop a useful expertise in digital modulation with this practical guide, based on the author's experience of over thirty years in industrial design. You will understand the physical meaning behind the mathematics of wireless signals and learn the intricacies and tradeoffs in signal selection and design. Six modulation families and twelve modulation types are covered in depth, together with a quantitative ranking of relative cost incurred to implement any of twelve modulation types. Extensive discussions of the Shannon Limit, Nyquist filtering, efficiency measures and signal-to-noise measures are provided, radio wave propagation and antennas, multiple access techniques, and signal coding principles are all covered, and spread spectrum and wireless system operation requirements are presented.

Although I like the technical content of this book, I have had considerable problems with this book working properly in the reader. There are sections of the book that cause the reader to hang. Accessing the "Table of Contents" in some sections of the book will also cause an error in the reader. This would be a good reference book on the subject of digital communications theory but I can't recommend buying the book until the publisher has fixed these issues.
