    The qualifications of a "good" operator are divided into inborn and acquired or teachable characteristics. A course of training for radio operators is then discussed in detail. The entrance requirements and objects of the students are considered, and the subject matter of the course is given. 1. OPERATING DIVISION. Students are taught to receive on buzzer-excited circuits, using head band telephon... View full abstract»

    1. Sustained radio frequency corona brushes or flames once started are maintained at much lower voltages than those required to start them by overstressing and ionizing the atmosphere. They quickly destroy even the most refractory insulations by their heating and ionizing properties. 2. The power factor of the charging current of a conductor in corona due to the application of sustained radio freq... View full abstract»

  • The Effectiveness of the Ground Antenna in Long Distance Reception

    Using an antenna several hundred meters long stretched on the ground, signals of an audibility up to more than one hundred are received from sustained wave stations 4,000 kilometers away. Atmospheric disturbances are found by the experimenter to be less troublesome relatively than when using a normal antenna. A further series of development experiments are outlined and will be undertaken. View full abstract»

    The paper gives the operating theory of the power transformer and alternator circuit of quenched spark gap transmitters. The secondary of the transformer and its loading capacity are reduced in the usual way to equivalent primary inductance and capacity. The theory of the transient phenomena occurring at the sudden discharge of the condenser is then developed. It is shown that under ordinary condi... View full abstract»

    The case of a simple circuit having periodically varying inductance is first examined. The solution shows that the current has a constant component and an infinite series of convergently diminishing higher harmonics. Circuits having inductance, resistance, and variable mutual inductance are next considered. To solve the equations obtained, an infinite transformation is carried out, each variable b...
