    This paper describes a laboratory-model AM broadcast receiver which used nine alloy-junction transistors and two compensating diodes. Six of the transistors were of the laboratory p-n-p type, designed for radio-frequency amplifiers, and three of the transistors were of the conventional p-n-p type selected for Class B audio driver and output service. The use of Class B output permitted a total batt... View full abstract»

    The following paper describes experimental and theoretical studies on a new phenomenon of microwave detection and conversion. Vacuum-tube diodes are used, but operating with very large electron-transit angles. It is shown that the cumulative energy received from the microwave field causes electrons to move out of the space charge region more rapidly than under dc conditions. This accounts for the ...

    Part I: Synthesis of Immittances with Two Poles and Two Zeros. Cauer's continued-fraction technique is generalized for use in realizing RLC network immittances. Using this method, element values are determined by simple processes of "forward" and "reverse" division. Immittances F(p) with two poles and zeros may be grouped in three classes according to the frequency jωm at which ... View full abstract»

    A bifilar helix used as the slow wave circuit for the backward-wave oscillator is investigated in this paper. Calculations show that the bifilar helix has a higher impedance than that of the ordinary single-wire helix. The propagating characteristics of the bifilar helix are analyzed and some experimental results of cold measurements are presented. It is also shown that with a bifilar helix, a per...

    Narrow-band radio-frequency amplifiers and mixers may be stabilized by negative feedback without increasing the bandwidth excessively. A couple using current feedback is described. This couple requires only a simple resistive beta circuit and may be designed such that the band-pass characteristic is largely independent of the feedback. Consideration is given to the problem of input impedance and a... View full abstract»

    Calculations are made of the electron trajectories in infinite strip beams constrained to move in a magnetic fleld parallel to the direction of flow. Space charge is taken into account, but nevertheless the analysis is only valid within certain well-defined limits. Different types of solution are obtained according to whether the beam is launched from a source outside or inside the magnetic fleld.... View full abstract»

    Three different types of high-speed transistor shift registers are discussed. The high speed (3 to 5 microseconds per shift pulse) is made possible by the use of nonsaturating bistable circuits. Two general shift registers are described making use of respectively one and two transistors per stage. The third register is of a specialized variety capable of shifting a single digit. In addition, an an... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a discussion of the concepts involved in the use of "comb" filters for signal-to-noise improvement in pulsed radar systems. A "comb" filter is one whose frequency spectrum consists of a number of equi-spaced elements resembling the tines of a comb.

    The performance of radars in storm detection is studied in a manner designed to help in the choice of the proper wavelength for the radar. Decreasing the wavelength increases the range in clear air, but the attenuation associated with the shortened wavelength cuts down appreciably the ability of the radar to look through intervening rain. It is concluded that for the certain detection of operation... View full abstract»

    General solutions are obtained for three- and four-section phase-shift networks. These solutions are reduced to design equations for a number of specific circuit configurations, and the complete solution is given for a four-section phase-shift oscillator, including effects of plate-load resistance, and input-miller capacity.

    The system gain and radiation pattern of a passive reflector antenna system (with a 45-degree plane rectangular reflector) are developed from aperture field theory. Experimentally determined system gains and a measured radiation pattern substantiate the theoretical analysis. Side-lobe levels and mutual coupling are also discussed. View full abstract»

    Diversity methods are used to reduce receiving errors caused by carrier fading; for a keyed signal, such errors are easily specified in terms of the binary error. The attainable reduction in error depends upon the type of diversity selection used at the receiver. Several selection methods are examined, and the binary error is calculated for each, assuming narrow-band FSK transmission, fluctuation ... View full abstract»
