intercarrier noise suppression

[¦in·tər′kar·ē·ər ′nȯiz sə‚presh·ən]

Means of suppressing the noise resulting from increased gain when a high-gain receiver with automatic volume control is tuned between stations; the suppression circuit automatically blocks the audio-frequency input of the receiver when no signal exists at the second detector. Also known as interstation noise suppression.
