    H.f. communication receivers have progressed towards a high level of sophistication yet a high percentage of reception failures are still due to limitations within the receiver. This paper considers the role of frequency selectivity for an ideal receiver and proposes a costeffective approach which should noticeably reduce reception failure. View full abstract»

    The Piccolo system of multi-frequency signalling has been in operation on the h.f. telegraphy network of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office for almost 20 years and has proved extremely effective. A new generation equipment has now been designed which is smaller, more reliable and more flexible than previous models, and incorporates a number of parameter changes and additional facilities sugges...

    In using learning curves for management control in a typical industrial environment, we seek to identify a number of patterns in the basic data, each of which is an important source of information to be fed into the decision-making machinery. These patterns may beclassified as follows: (a) A trend-line, which in some `best¿ sense, can be used for predicting future output. This trend-line can be i... View full abstract»

    A two-dimensional theoretical distribution with many of the features observed on a 5000 :1 model is developed and the field external to the medium linking the replay head is shown to be equivalent to the field from a filamentary pole parallel to the medium surface and transverse to the track direction located at the centre of each transition. Each transition is described by s pole strength per uni... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

Published from 1963 to February 1964 by the British Institution of Radio Engineers and from March 1964 to 1984 by the the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers, The Radio and Electronic Engineer published papers describing original research and development in all branches of electronic engineering, as well as critical and interpretive surveys. Short contributions dealing with device technology, circuit techniques and experimental methods were also included.
