    The transmitter sends the dots and dashes on one frequency and the spaces on a slightly different frequency. At the receiver a local frequency is superimposed producing two audio frequencies. The paths of the two audio frequencies are combined differentially so they would oppose if they occurred at the same time; also, they would pull the marking pen in the opposite direction if they occurred at t...

    A receiving set is described in which the radio-frequency amplification is automatically controlled to give a nearly constant radio-frequency voltage at the detector, independent of differences in antenna signal voltage. This results in nearly uniform response at the loud-speaker from nearby and distant broadcasting stations and also reduces the effect of fading. The method employed consists in us...

    This paper describes the construction and operation of a thermionic vacuum tube which is designed for the measurement of radio-frequency currents. The input circuit consists of a filament whose cross section is small enough that the "skin effect" is negligible at thefrequencies used. The filament is heated first by currents of known magnitude (at a low frequency) and again by radio-frequency curre... View full abstract»

    Experiments are described in which a virtual height of the reflecting ionized region was measured using time lag between impulses arriving over a direct, and the reflected path. The measurements were made on 57 and 111 meters. The height was ascertained only at night and the daylight hour before sunset. Movements of the reflecting region are plotted showing slow rises and rapid drops. The rising r... View full abstract»
