Transmitter Waveform Analysis

Has anyone looked on a RF Spectrum Analyzer at the PCM waveform from a spread spectrum transmitter?

1. There is no PCM waveform, as the modulation used is not PCM for any modern TX. QPSK and similar modulations are used. PCM is a method of modulating a sampled analog signal (the PPM pulsestream in the case of PCM transmitters). The signal is purely digital for modern systems.

2. You can see the spectrum analysis of the systems on the FCC certification documents.

Futaba PCM analysed here:

Each brand has his own encoding, unlike PPM which is de facto standard for all, with small variations.
