Homework Help: D/A Communications - Minimum bandwidth of a channel

  1. Mar 17, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    The given channel transfer function and PSDs. Note that the capital Pi symbol in the PSD of the message symbolizes the rectangle function so Sm(f) = 8rect(f/8000)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    From my understanding, channel noise is not filtered at this point since it's additive to the signal in the channel.

    I get an answer of B = 0.000164 Hz, which doesn't seem reasonable. Including the negative frequencies, a bandwidth of 2B = 0.000328 Hz still doesn't make much sense to me.
