This paper addresses wireless microphone sensing in the TV white space and efficient detection of narrowband FM modulation signals. To this end, a wideband frequency domain analysis is proposed. The required Fast Fourier Transform for this operation may be shared between sensing analysis and modulation functions. A particular decision metric is then studied for the analysis of wireless microphone signals based on the Teager-Kaiser energy operator. Simulation results show that 6 dB of detection gain could be achieved when using a frequency domain analysis compared to time domain methods. The Teager-Kaiser detection leads to further improvement of 1.5 dB.
