vestigial sideband

vestigial sideband

[və′stij·ē·əl ′sīd‚band]
(communications)
The transmitted portion of an amplitude-modulated sideband that has been largely suppressed by a filter having a gradual cutoff in the neighborhood of the carrier frequency; the other sideband is transmitted without much suppression. Abbreviated VSB.
