    An antenna system has been designed for all-wave radio reception at 0.54 to eighteen megacycles with reduction of noise from causes near the receiver. The system includes doublet antenna, transmission line and coupling filters. The fifteen-meter double V doublet is designed on the basis of impedance curves, for satisfactory balanced operation at six to eighteen megacycles. Unbalanced operation is ... View full abstract»

    A study has been made of the segregation into beams of the space current in devices of the over-all size of commercial receiver tubes and at potentials less than 300 volts. Electrode coatings of luminescent material were used to make the beam traces apparent on any or all electrodes. Qualitative relationships between beam formations and relative electrode potentials are stated. Space currents of a... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic energy may be transmitted through the inside of hollow tubes of metal, provided the frequency is greater than a certain critical value; this value is inversely proportional to the tube radius and to the dielectric coefficient for the tube interior. Calculations and measurements of the more important characteristics of this new kind of transmission system have been made, and the con... View full abstract»

    A theoretical study is made of a double doublet, determining the vertical radiation characteristics for various current ratios. Also, the horizontal field intensity is plotted as a function of the current ratio and phase angle. Three experimental designs are discussed. Fading measurements show the improvement of the upper doublet in comparison with a quarter-wave antenna. A theoretical study is ma... View full abstract»

    The possibilities of the cathode-ray wattmeter have been investigated between sixty cycles and forty megacycles. Its use can be extended to between 100 and 200 kilocycles by the use of either selective or nonselective amplifiers, thus permitting a wide range of power sensitivity. When the nonselective amplifier is used or when no amplifiers at all are used, the power measured includes all the harm... View full abstract»

  • The Propagation of Radio Waves over the Surface of the Earth and in the Upper Atmosphere

    Simple formulas and graphs are given which represent the ground-wave field intensity at the surface of the earth as radiated from a short vertical antenna at the surface of the earth. The theory is compared to some experimental results reported by other investigators to determine its range of application. The diffraction formula given is theoretically valid only at the lower frequencies; however, ... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to obtain a certain integral expressing the fundamental wave function and with the aid of this integral to calculate the radiation resistances of small doublets and small loops placed inside an infinite hollow cylinder. Some applications of this integral to calculation of radiation from parallel wires in free space are also discussed. View full abstract»
