    A new method of reducing the effects of all kinds of disturbances is described. The transmitting and receiving arrangements of the system, which makes use of frequency modulation, are shown in detail. The theory of the process by which noise reduction is obtained is discussed and an account is given of the practical realization of it in transmissions during the past year from the National Broadcas...

    A description is given of the transmitter and receiver equipment used in making field strength surveys in the Camden-Philadelphia area for a low power transmitter whose antenna is 200 feet above the ground, at frequencies of thirty and one hundred megacycles. Field strength contour maps for the area within approximately ten miles of the transmitter are given. From these maps the average field stre... View full abstract»

    In the new technique of the ultra-short waves the magnetron oscillator plays an important rôle. The shortest wave lengths as well as the largest powers have been obtained by using magnetron oscillators. Its use for radio communication purposes was limited however by modulation difficulties. The method of modulating magnetron oscillators described here is based on the application of an additio... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the most desirable dimensions for closed antennas. The total resistance of the antenna is broken down into its several components. It is shown that the greatest losses are the dielectric losses in the earth and near-by objects, and formulas are given for calculating this component. Means are discussed for reducing the dielectric losses. View full abstract»

  • A Study of the Electromagnetic Field in the Vicinity of a Radiator

    The complete equations for the electromagnetic field of an infinitesimal current element are given. The integration of these equations is considered for the case of a finite radiator having an empirical current distribution. Tables are included to facilitate computation and consideration is given to difference in phase of the current in various portions of the radiator. View full abstract»
