    Three experimental 150 MHz transmitters, located about Albany, New York, have been slaved to a common synchronizing signal by means of phase-lock techniques and wire lines. By achieving excellent, long term relative stability, routine frequency adjustments and annoying beat frequencies are eliminated. Details and performance of a modular system, which makes available any number up to 11 assigned c... View full abstract»

    The technique of impedance loading to the antenna element has been applied to an antenna system for portable VHF communication equipment and its practical usefulness has been shown with a brief theoretical analysis and some experimental results. By means of impedance loading to the antenna element, the driving point impedance may be varied so as to make matching feasible, even though the element l... View full abstract»

    A reflex klystron oscillator is used as the microwave transmitter and superregenerative receiver in a Doppler radar designed to measure the relative speed of a moving target at distances of up to three hundred feet. It is shown that the klystron oscillation frequency must be kept within close limits, and the rate of oscillation decay must be suitably controlled, in order that the receiver sensitiv...

    Transmission on mobile radio circuits is often affected by standlng-wave breakup" resulting from spatial variations in rf signal amplitude, which to the moving mobile unit appear as rapid fades. Measurements made in the 150 mHz band confirm previous reports that within any small area such signal variations tend to follow the Rayleigh distribution. Statistical distributions have also been determine... View full abstract»
