What is the most efficient use of the small chunk of radio spectrum an RF channel occupies? There are two answers to this question, one is the frequency division multiple access (FDMA) technique and the second is the time division multiple access (TDMA) technique.
If you are unfamiliar with FDMA and TDMA, or are yet to pin down the differences between the two, the course Modulation and Radio Building Blocks: The Difference between FDMA and TDMA, is the course for you.
Learn the definition of both FDMA and TDMA, and the differences between the two by watching the video below and read the accompanying The Difference between FDMA and TDMA lesson. You can also take the full Basic Radio Awareness course on the Tait Radio Academy.
