    The convenience, ease of operation and inherent reasonableness of a direction finding system which culminates in a simple needle pointing to the selected radio station must make it seem to the late-comer that things were always thus in the plane's front office. Not so. Much anguish was experienced, many brains overtaxed, and considerable ingenuity exercised to place this apparently simple device i... View full abstract»

    The use of high speed aircraft has accentuated the requirements for low drag antennas and has made the precipitation static problem much more severe. A radically new loop design using ferrite materials makes it possible to exceed the performance of the present external loop antenna in a submerged magnetic antenna that has zero drag. Among its important characteristics are lower weight, less mechan... View full abstract»

    A theoretical investigation has been made of the behavior of low-frequency automatic direction finder systems in aircraft on courses near and over the radio station. This behavior is explained in the light of electromagnetic field theory and the equipment characteristics. An equation is derived for the locus of all points where the ADF indicator will start to reverse due to sense-antenna signal ph... View full abstract»

    This paper traces briefly the history of the development of the AD.7092 series of automatic radio direction finders and describes the special features of the AD.7092C which was designed to suit the requirements of North American operators. Novel features include an electrical remote control system and a tuned remote sense amplifier which permits the use of long feeders using small sense antennas. ... View full abstract»
