 +===== BFO (Beat Frequency Oscillator) =====
 +The **Beat Frequency Oscillator** is used to demodulate [[A1|A1 (CW)]] transmissions. In these morse code transmissions,​ only a carrier signal is transmitted. In a normal AM radio, one would only hear a very slight hiss in the rhythm of the morse code signals, or even nothing.
 +So a RF signal very near to the intermediate frequency is added and the mixed signal is demodulated;​ CW signals are audible as a high pitch tone; in most high grade sets, the BFO frequency and therefore the pitch of the morse code signal is variable.
 +The BFO also be activated to demodulate [[SSB|single sideband]] transmissions,​ the BFO pitch note has to be regulated, so that the human speech sounds natural.
