Related to Upper sideband: Vestigial sideband, side band, Weaver modulator


also side band  (sīd′bănd′)
Either of the two bands of frequencies, one just above and one just below a carrier frequency, that result from modulation of a carrier wave.


(General Physics) the frequency band either above (upper sideband) or below (lower sideband) the carrier frequency, within which fall the spectral components produced by modulation of a carrier wave. See also single sideband transmission

The internal LO frequency is 1.7 GHz (upper sideband).
Generally, the lower sideband was a few decibels higher than the upper sideband. Upconversion gain was measured while both the RF and LO signals were swept simultaneously to give upconversion gain as a function of RF output frequency with a fixed IF input frequency as shown in Figure 8.
