Electronic Communications Systems refers to the technology and science that is involved in transmitting electrical impulses over a distance, via radio, telegraph, cable, telephone, or television. The entire electronic communication system involves a transmitter, a channel, a noise variable, and a receiver.

Electronic Communication Systems is a class text on the subject of Communications. It simplifies the theory and presents it in a theoretical and illustrative manner. In this newly revised 5th edition, the original formula of the previous edition has been maintained but important updates to the technological aspects have been also included. A significant discussion on Digital Communications has also been given consideration. This update has helped the text gain an important place in the field of electronic communication systems.

The text is organized into 18 in-depth chapters. Some of the topics that are covered are Noise, Antennas, Transmission Lines, Radar Systems, Waveguides, Television Broadcasting, Microwave Tubes and Circuits, Resonators and Components, Broadband Communication Systems, and various techniques in Amplitude Modulation, Angle Modulation, Pulse Modulation,and Digital Modulation techniques. Some of the key features of this text include new chapters which cover topics such as Pulse Modulation and Digital Modulation. The text also provides enhanced coverage on Radio Transmitters, Receivers, and Analog Communication.

Electronic Communication Systems was published in 2012.
