Definition Edit

A spurious emission is an

[e]mission that causes interference on a frequency or frequencies that are outside the necessary bandwidth and the level of which may be reduced without affecting the corresponding transmission of information. Spurious emissions include harmonic emissions, parasitic emissions, intermodulation products, and frequency conversion products but exclude out-of-band emissions.[1]
