  • Patent number: 6704369
    Abstract: A signal separation apparatus is capable of extracting original signals of two different systems with a high quality from received signals containing the original signals superposed each other in the course of transmission. In signal transmission from senders to receiver equipment, the signals to be sent separately are susceptible to mutual interference and superposition with given amplification factors in the course of transmission through respective transmission channels to such an extent that these signals can no more be discerned from each other by a receiver.
