A baseband transmission scheme for wireless communications has been proposed and examined using a pair of discone antennas for transmission and reception. The wireless baseband transmission scheme radiates a baseband signal stream, such as non-return-to-zero (NRZ), return-to-zero (RZ), or Manchester encoded signals, directly from an antenna. Namely, a carrier in terms of a sinusoidal radio wave or light wave is not used in the transmission. In experiments, baseband pulses generated with a data generator were radiated directly from the discone antenna, and received waveforms were observed with a digital storage oscilloscope. The experiments showed that wireless baseband transmission is realisable when using antennas with a flat amplitude spectrum and a linear phase characteristic, such as discone antennas, over a given band. Manchester encoding is promising for this wireless baseband transmission.
