  1. Blanketing

    Blanketing is interference caused by strong radio signals. Although the spectral mask of a radio station's transmitter suppresses spurious emissions on other frequencies in the band, being extremely close to a station may allow them to still be strong enough to cause significant interference. The strong station will appear on nearly every blank or weak channel in the band, especially in the FM broadcast band. This problem is greatly reduced by even moderate-quality receivers, which have better selectivity than inexpensive disposable ones. Occasionally, stations that cause blanketing interference near their antenna will also pop up in more bizarre items, such as computer loudspeakers, which are not even meant to pick up radio stations. This is also the result of poor electromagnetic shielding in such cheap electronics.

Examples of blanketing in a Sentence

  1. Hunter Biden:

    This was an all-hands-on-deck type cover-up, so it wasn't enough just to have the media black it out. This had to be a sort of complete blanketing of the story, and that requires not allowing people to talk about it on social media because it wouldn't have mattered if The New York Times didn’t cover it if all of Twitter and all of Facebook and all of LinkedIn and Instagram … was speaking about it anyways.

  2. Brad Russell:

    Routers used to be seen as a purely functional device with a bunch of unsightly antennas that you'd hide inside a room, now they're designed to be Apple-esque things that are beautiful to look at. Some of these newfangled WiFi routers are here today ; others are coming soon. We ’ll be putting many of their claims to the test as the devices appear on the market. And we’ve already tested theEeroandGoogle Asus OnHubrouters — which had split results compared to other routers in our labs. Here’s what the newcomers are promising. Probably the biggest complaint among WiFi users is that there are places in the house where wireless signals don't quite reach. There are a number of solutions to this, including the use of WiFi extenders, but these can be a pain to use and they’re not always effective. For one thing, many of them use the same radios for both receiving and sending data, which cuts their throughput, or speed. Most of these repeaters also create a secondary network you must manually log onto during setup. Routers like the Eero and Luma( promised for June) take a different approach. Instead of one box sitting in the middle of your house beaming radio signals in all directions, these companies let you deploy multiple routers that communicate via mesh networking — so the WiFi router in your living room connects to the one in your study, which talks to the one upstairs in the master bedroom, and so on, blanketing your house in WiFi signals. In addition to testing Eero routers in our lab, both as a standalone device and as a three-pack, we installed a set of them in an editor's home, and found that the system largely lived up to its claims for wide coverage and easy setup. Every new generation of router technology is faster than the previous one. Routers that use the current WiFi radio protocol( known as 802.11 ac) can handle more data than those based on the previous protocol( 802.11 n) — and all of the recommended routers in our Ratings adhere to 802.11. ac. The next-generation devices, called.

  3. Christiana Figueres:

    China is investing $ 80 billion into renewable energy, creating 3 million jobs( and) practically blanketing the Gobi Desert, because they want to take full advantage of their solar potential, together, China and India will be creating the opportunity and investing two times as much into solar and wind as the current global capacity in renewables ….
