    The development of radio telegraphy, as a mysterious and little understood physical art, from well known inductive and conductive methods of telegraphy is briefly stated. It is shown that radio telegraphy is now subject to engineering treatment and consists of a series of expected effects resulting from a series of controllable causes. The large scope of natural phenomena involved is outlined, and... View full abstract»

    The Arlington station of United States Naval Radio Service is described in detail. The towers, large antenna, ground, power supply, 100 kilowatt spark set, receiving room, 5 kilowatt spark set, small antenna, and 100 kilowatt arc set are fully considered as to design and operation. The traffic statistics of Arlington are given. The question of Pan-American radio communication is considered and a c... View full abstract»

    Experiments on the radiation from various types of low horizontal antennas are described. A 2-kilowatt, 500-cycle quenched spark set is used at a wave length of 800 meters. The influence of the ground is investigated. Directional radiation is found, and also an apparent non-reciprocity between directions of non-radiation and those of non-reception. View full abstract»

    The polar energy distribution curves of various types of low antennas are given for of slightly less than the wave length from the transmitter. The measurements were made with silicon detector and galvanometer. The influence of wire length of receiver, and vertical vs. ground antennas, were studied. View full abstract»

    The Thompson or "logarithmic decrement" theory of oscillatory circuits is contrasted with the linear decrement theory. Both are limiting cases of the more general theory which considers circuits containing both conductor and spark resistance. It is this last and most general theory which is fully developed in the present paper. It is found that the effect of the spark is to introduce a simple harm... View full abstract»
