    This paper deals with the different types of electron oscillations which occur in the Barkhausen and Kurz retarding field of a triode having a high positive potential applied to its grid, and zero or small negative potential applied to its anode. Four different frequency ranges were found as follows: (1) In the retarding field between the electrodes there occur electron oscillations whose frequenc... View full abstract»

  • A Convenient Method for Referring Secondary Frequency Standards to a Standard Time Interval

    Publication Year: 1929, Page(s):252 - 271
    Cited by:  Papers (17)

    A method is described for obtaining a convenient low frequency from a high-frequency standard by means of harmonic control of distorted wave oscillators (multi-vibrators). In the equipment described two such oscillators are employed, for convenience in arriving at a harmonic series of frequencies, based on 10-kc fundamental, as well as a frequency of 1 kc for operation of the clock motor, from a s...

    The method here described is suitable for calibration of either piezo oscillators or frequency meters in terms of an accurately standardized temperature controlled piezo oscillator. A radio-frequency generator is adjusted and maintained at 10 kc in terms of the standard piezo oscillator. The correct adjustment of this generator is shown by a special form of beat indicator which gives both visible ... View full abstract»

    General radio-frequency circuit theory is discussed in this paper. The theoretical work and discussion is divided into two parts, amplification and stability. General amplification equations for impedance and transformer coupling, using an untuned primary whose period is above the highest frequency considered, are derived and discussed for the case of a screen-grid tube such as Cunningham type CX-...

    It is the purpose of this paper to give a theory of the effect of regeneration using the solution of a non-linear differential equation, and to present experimental verification of the theory. It is shown that: (a) as a first approximation, detection has no effect on the radio-frequency grid voltage developed under the influence of an incoming signal, (b) the amplification obtained through regener...

    This paper deals with certain experiments carried out in the Mount Royal Tunnel of the Canadian National Railways at Montreal, Quebec, in order to determine how radio waves reach the receiving set. Preliminary experiments in 1926 indicated that the penetration of radio waves into the tunnel was a function of the frequency, short waves below 100 meters dying out within a few hundred feet of the mou...

    The theory of normalizing meshes in electrical networks, as outlined in a recent article appearing in this journal, is verified and illustrated by examples and figures relating to two- and three-mesh circuits. In the two-mesh circuit mesh No. 1 was normalized, thus confining the corresponding frequency to that mesh both for the transient and steady states as illustrated by Figs. 2 to 6 inclusive. ...
