    The method used by the Engineering Division of the Federal Radio Commission in determining empirical standards of reception, interference, and service area is explained, for consideration in connection with the engineering aspects of the allocation of radio broadcast facilities. The average good service areas of 100-watt local channel stations, 250- to 1000-watt regional channel stations, 5000- to... View full abstract»

  • Acoustical and Electrical Power Requirements for Electric Carillons

    Publication Year: 1932, Page(s):626 - 646

    The importance is shown of making noise level measurements in order to determine the acoustical or electrical power necessary to blanket any given area with satisfactory music. Measurements were made on the bells of the Valley Forge carillon, over a wide area using a sound meter and a local variable noise making machine. These data gave the necessary relations between noise level and satisfactory ... View full abstract»

  • Mica Condensers in High-Frequency Circuits

    Publication Year: 1932, Page(s):647 - 656

    Mica condensers have a variety of uses in high-frequency circuits. They are called upon to store electrical energy, block direct current, by-pass high-frequency current, etc. Each of these functions is discussed in detail. Conventional construction of mica condensers is described. A method of arriv̇ing at satisfactory ratings is shown. The following examples are worked out: 1. Calculation of ... View full abstract»

    A review of the literature on selectivity including the important recent contributions shows the necessity for coördination of the results and clarification of the definitions. The present selectivity requirements are developed and a simple mathematical treatment is expanded to meet them. The criterion for uniform ability to reject undesired signals, for both condenser and inductance tuning, ... View full abstract»

    In the high tension and low tension ignition circuits of present-day motor cars there are three sources of high-frequency transients in time and space. In the lighting generator there is another. These radiations and their reduction to acceptable levels to avoid pick-up by the supply and antenna leads to the receiver and the best form of antenna are discussed. View full abstract»

    This paper contains some results of an experimental study of the effects which ground and ground irregularities have upon short-wave signal reception. The results illustrate the signal strength advantage to be gained in the selection of suitable ground or topographical conditions and show the influence of antenna types, and vertical angle of signal arrival, upon such an advantage. Although the tes... View full abstract»

  • Resistance-Capacitance Coupled Amplifier in Television a Transient Solution for the Performance of the Resistance Capacitance Coupled Amplifier on Characteristic Television Signals

    The resistance-capacitance coupled amplifier as employed in television systems lends itself fairly readily to the complete, as against the steady-state, solution of its performance. This is due to the fact that the television signal can be resolved into a simple and definite time function. The following paper presents a method of obtaining the transient or complete solution of the amplifier perfor... View full abstract»

  • A Simple Harmonic Analyzer

    Some of the difficulties experienced with extensively used methods of harmonic analysis are listed, and a harmonic analyzer more or less free of these defects is described. This analyzer in principle is a dynamometer type meter on which the fundamental and harmonic components of the current are read separately. A theoretical discussion of the method and its limitations is included. View full abstract»
