Homework Help: PAM is not very good for long-distance transmission. Why is it so?

  1. Mar 24, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Just came across the statement that PAM is not very good for long-distance transmission.
    Why is it so?
    Thanks.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Is it because the output is of infinite length?

    what the heck is pam and what class is this for? (is it for applied electromagnetics with an intro to transmission line theory?)

    Ops.

    PAM = pulse amplitude modulation
    for digital communication.
