[time-nuts] power spectrum of hard limiter output

Even the original is a good classic on PLLs. I have an original photocopy of
the typed pre-publication volume, as well as the actual book. Regarding hard
limiters, we did a lot of study on their behavior on the resulting power
spectra. We use a one bit quantizer of ASW signals and then displayed the
output power spectra on graph paper, back in the late 60's early 70's. I
have some of the original papers on the effects of hard limiting of signals,
with AWGN, however, they are downstairs in the "inner sanctum" and to find
them would be a challenge. Maybe if I get ambitious I'll venture downstairs
and see if I can locate the folders. Would be glad to scan them. Regards -

Yes, but there is later revisions of it. A classic on PLLs.
