SSB has been proposed as a means of utilizing the spectrum allocated to mobile radio users more efficiently and, at the same time, reducing electromagnetic pollution. The authors use a pilot tone positioned in a notch in the baseband spectrum at 1. 67kHz, 15db below peak speech power. The tone is filtered from the incoming signal and used to phaselock the receiver. It is removed by a notch filter before the audio output
