This paper discusses the disturbing elements encountered in the application of quartz plates to broadcast and aircraft radio transmitters. A general procedure for minimizing such effects is considered from a circuit standpoint as well as in the light of practical experience. The degree to which maintenance may affect performance and the necessity for automatic equipment are shown by data obtained in the field. Apparatus and systems which enable the operating staff to meet modern frequency stability requirements by monitoring the emitted carrier are also described.
