    The best course for a yachtsman to steer, for any course to windward, can be shown to be that which resolves the maximum speed in the direction of the true wind for any course lying between the reciprocal sailing vectors producing such a maximum. Outside these vectors it is nearly always quicker to steer a direct course, the exception being on the running points of sailing in light wind conditions... View full abstract»

    The paper reviews briefly the very stringent conditions which must be fulfilled by video delay lines connected in a television programme chain. The most suitable method of construction is found to be a cascade of delay sections of the same image impedance, and three types, onebelieved to be novel, are examined in detail with respect to their suitability for long delays inserted in main signal-hand...

  • Static voltages on the guy insulators of m.f. and i.f. broadcast tower antennas

    Publication Year: 1973, Page(s):744 - 750

    A new approximate method for calculating the static voltages on the guy insulators of m.f. and i.f. broadcast tower antennas is given. The method is based on an integral-equation technique, where the integral equation is solved by the so-called point matching method; the unknown charge densities are approximated by polynomials. The polynomial expansion provides very significant advantages, primari... View full abstract»

    A theory is given which enables the overall coupling between two modes to be calculatedfor a tapered waveguide, if the coupling factor between the modes, the phase constants of the modes, and the characteristic impedances of the waveguide for the two modes are known at all points along the taper. It is thus restricted to those cases where a characteristic impedance can be defined, i.e. waveguides ... View full abstract»
