    This paper carries the art of electric picture transmission from its inception, over 80 years ago, to the results of present-day development. It is pointed out that the seemingly rapid strides that have been made in the art during the last 10 years of its 83-year existence may be attributed to the larger storehouse of electrical and mechanical contrivances from which modern photo-transmission engi...

  • Sleet Removal from Antennas

    Publication Year: 1926, Page(s):181 - 195

    A method is described for automatically releasing the antenna wires in case of excessive sleet load. Should the wires break under a heavy coating of ice, serious damage to the self-supporting towers would result, due to the unbalanced load. It also describes a new type of suspension condenser developed for the sole purpose of preventing the low frequency energy going to the ground and thus making ... View full abstract»

    It will be seen that the development and use of vacuum tube apparatus by commercial and government stations has not only doubled the range of marine communications, but at the same time has made it possible to carry on a more extensive service with a far smaller number of corresponding stations on shore. Due to the much sharper waves emitted by vacuum tube transmitters, a greater number of channel... View full abstract»

  • The Polarization of Radio Waves

    Prior measurements of wave polarization made at the lower transmission frequencies have uniformly shown vertical electric force at all distances from the transmitter. The present work extends such measurements to the higher frequencies, where it was found that the electric force at any considerable distance from the transmitter was no longer vertical, but, instead, predominantly horizontal. Compar... View full abstract»

    A simple method of calibrating an audio-frequency generator is described, a standard single-frequency source of oscillation being employed. The method makes use of the harmonics of the standard source and of the generator being calibrated. View full abstract»

  • New Method Pertaining to the Reduction of Interference in the Reception of Wireless Telegraphy and Telephony

    Publication Year: 1926, Page(s):249 - 262

    The usefulness of directional reception and of resonant circuit selectivity in reducing the effect of atmospheric disturbances of reception is first considered. Assuming that sinusoidal forces coexist in a system with much larger impulses, it is shown that the sinusoidal forces will not pass through systems having internal frictional losses under certain definite conditions. The analogy between me... View full abstract»
