    This review of the development of the "Transradio" system includes a description of the transition from the manual operation of a single Berlin-New York radiotelegraph circuit to the operation of a system involving transoceanic radio-telegraph operation between Germany and fourteen other countries and localities. The development of the use of short waves is described and a tabulation is given of t... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the importance of adopting uniform standards designed to express the coverage obtained by broadcast transmitters in terms of the field intensities produced, and discusses the methods used by the authors. Illustrations are given of the methods used to determine coverage, to predict the effect of changes where transmission constants are known, and to determine interference condi... View full abstract»

    Experiments are described for ascertaining the attenuation suffered by the unreflected wave in traversing relatively small amounts of land between the sea-shore and hypothetical inland sites. The results show 8 to 12 db attenuation for 1 mile inland with greater attenuation thereafter for unfavorable terrain. Swampy ground produces small attenuation. The classical theory of wave transmission past ... View full abstract»

  • An Untuned Radio-Frequency Amplifier

    Publication Year: 1932, Page(s):87 - 94

    This paper outlines in brief a number of untuned radio-frequency transformers which have been used in the past. It discusses their characteristics and reasons for their limitations. It is pointed out that if the plate-load impedance of a tube can be increased at the high frequencies, the amplification will be increased. A method of doing this by closely coupling a circuit tuned to a high frequency... View full abstract»

    This paper is a historical review up to the year 1931 of the more significant experiments with radio ultra-high frequencies and ultra-short waves. Developments are classified, in accordance with the type of oscillation generator employed, under four main heads: spark oscillators, regenerative oscillators of conventional type, electronic oscillators of Barkhausen-Kurz and Gill-Morrell type, electro...

    This paper gives a quantitative account of operating performance for two representative oscillator circuits, one of single tube type and the other of two-tube balanced type. Wavelength (approximately 3 meters) was measured by two independent methods. Efficiency and stability were measured under various plate, grid and filament voltage conditions. Normal efficiency values ranged from 20 per cent to... View full abstract»

    The advantages and limitations of the tetrode employed as a modulated radio-frequency amplifier tube are considered and the results of an experimental study made upon one type of screen-grid tube are given. Oscillograms and characteristics are presented from which the operation of the type UX-865 tetrode can be predicted under varied operating conditions and for several methods of modulation. The ...

  • Theory of Design and Calibration of Vibrating Reed Indicators for Radio Range Beacons

    Publication Year: 1932, Page(s):161 - 181

    This paper gives a general treatment of the theory of design of vibrating reed indicators, which was developed in connection with measurement and design work on the tuned-reed course indicator for the aircraft radio range beacon. The equations and conclusions may be readily adapted to apply to any similar vibrating system. By assuming that a reed may be replaced by an equivalent particle, vibratin... View full abstract»

    Numerous modes of vibration of zero-and thirty-degree cut circular and rectangular crystalline quartz plates were studied experimentally. Various methods were employed in studying these modes which are piezo-electrically excited. The behavior of lycopodium powder applied to the vibrating faces proved to be the most fruitful source of information. A number of photographs of the patterns thus formed... View full abstract»
