The transmission of pulse-type signals is important in many applications. Where the required information rate is low it is possible to use a narrow-band transmission link. The availability of voice-quality telephone lines makes their use desirable wherever they are capable of handling the signals. The purpose of this memorandum is to examine the pulse-handling capability of such telephone lines.
