Hello,

Here http://www.mathpages.com/home/kmath210/kmath210.htm it is written that "...in order to actually convey information, a signal cannot be a simple periodic wave...". I've met this statement in several other places too, this one is just for reference.

What does that mean that a simple sinusoidal periodic wave can't convey information?
