    The general absence of standards for transcription recording and reproducing for broadcasting has resulted in the use of as many as 10 equalizing networks by some stations. The National Association of Broadcasters has co-ordinated the work of a special committee, consisting of representatives of interested organizations, which has prepared and adopted a series of standards covering recording chara...

    This paper is a review of the general problem of aircraft antennas used for communication in the frequency range of 2 to 20 megacycles. Fixed antennas, shunt-fed wing antennas, and trailing-wire antennas are discussed and several typical curves of resistance and reactance are included. The icing problem is considered. The characteristics of several types of wire suitable for aircraft antenna are c... View full abstract»

    Following a brief discussion of impedance-measuring methods, the theory underlying the operation of this instrument is presented with the development of useful equations. The merit of the scheme lies in the fact that measurements can be made while the impedance is in operation without disturbing the current distribution of the network. Practical arrangements of the parts are then considered along ... View full abstract»

    A method of frequency discrimination in which the frequency of balance is determined solely by the frequency of the controlling oscillator is explained. The method utilizes the phase turnover, which occurs at zero beat, between two beat sources when one of the beating signals is dephased by 90 degrees before it is applied to one of the beat detectors. A network is inserted in one of the beat sourc... View full abstract»

    Cosmic static is defined as electromagnetic radiation which may be detected by radio receiving equipment and which has extraterrestrial origin. A highly directive system for detecting and recording these radiations is described and analyzed. Data are given on the variations in intensity of cosmic static in relation to various regions of the galaxy. The effects of interference are discussed. It is ... View full abstract»

    In a frequency-modulation system, a sudden jump in carrier frequency corresponding to a Heaviside unit signal will result in a transient depending on the receiving-filter bandwidth. If this bandwith exceeds twice the maximum frequency swing, the shape and duration of the transient is shown to be about the same as in an amplitude-modulation system with the same bandwidth; for narrower filters the t...

  • The Characteristic Curves of the Triode

    A method is described by which the entire static characteristic curves for the plate current of a power triode can be deduced from one experimentally determined curve. This experimental curve can be obtained at low power without danger of overheating the tube. Using the same procedure, the grid-current curves and the total space-current curves can be determined. A new log-log chart is described on... View full abstract»
