  • Communication with Quasi Optical Waves

    Publication Year: 1931, Page(s):1713 - 1730
    Cited by:  Papers (5)

    This paper deals with electromagnetic waves of from about 0.001 millimeter to 10 meters in wavelength. These waves are called quasi optical waves because their performance is very similar to the performance of visible light. Due to scattering and absorption in the atmosphere, however, only two relatively small parts of that range can be used for communication, that is, between 5 centimeters and 10... View full abstract»

  • High-Frequency Atmospheric Noise

    A method which has been employed in the measurement of high-frequency atmospheric noise is described. Using this method measurements of noise over the range from 5 to 20 megacycles made in different parts of the United States and at different times of the year, show a distinct diurnal change in intensity similar to that for long-range high-frequency signal transmission. Except during periods of se... View full abstract»

    Progressive stages in the development of short-wave directive antennas for long-distance communication are outlined. The scope of development described embraces the period from 1923, beginning with experiments on a transmitting wave antenna at Belfast, Maine, to the present commercial directive antennas used in the world-wide short-wave system of R.C.A. Communications, Inc. Various types of direct... View full abstract»

    Starting from telegraph equations, the action of high-frequency electric lines is treated theoretically and experimentally. Their efficiency is calculated and the relation to the magnitude of the load resistance is determined. For measuring damping and surge impedance of these lines, methods are given that are applicable up to the highest frequencies. This has been confirmed by test. The phenomena... View full abstract»

    The discussor feels this paper (ibid., vol 19, pp 1131-1150, July, 1931) commends itself to a large part of the radio engineering field. It is of special importance to engineers concernedwith the development of transmitters. The paper should be read by everyone who contemplates developing apparatus in which power efficiency of the radio equipment is important. Push-pull amplifiers have been used i... View full abstract»
