Adam,

There are an infinite number of periodic, band-limited signals; they just
don't have discontinuities like square, trapezoid, sawtooth, etc. do. In
other words, you can't get them directly out of a function generator.

Thanks all for responding to my inquiry on the Nyquest
sampling rate. I guess the important take away is that
this sampling theory applies only to a true sine
waveform signal not "Periodic Signals" as I mentioned
in my first mail. I always remembered Fourier series
form my freshman year but did not establish the mental
correlation between "periodic" and "band limited".

 I appreciate all you input.
Adam
