    Hi,
    I'm translating an interview with a woman from the SETI (search for extra terrestrial intelligence), she's talking about narrowband signals, here is the context :
    "what we are looking for are signals that show up on just one channel of the radio dial, frequency compression, a very narrowband signal"

    I would translate the narrowband signal as "un signal qui se limite à une très petite portion du spectre radio"

    but again, it seems quite long... any idea?

    ...un signal sur un spectre radio(électrique) limité.
    ...un signal sur une étroite bande de fréquences.

    Narrow-band signal = signal à bande étroite
    Contraire de wideband / broadband signal.
    Le trait d'union est optionnel en anglais.
