How sorry for "dummy" question. I have difficulty to understand how the AM receiver.
Being a child I was taught that AM receiver resonates only with the radio frequencies it is tuned to, and "passes" only this frequencies to "other" circuits.
Recently I have read in articles that somehow the AM frequencies have the component of carrier frequency and component of side band frequencies. I even can more or less understand the formula derivation of it, which is quite simple. What I have difficulty to understand is: If AM receiver tuned to receive only one frequency, e.g the carrier frequencies, how all this side band frequencies are not getting filtered out by the receiver?
Please be patient all you radio gurus.
