    The chain of semi-high-power stations (25 K.W.) established by the Marconi Company at Ketchikan, Juneau, and Astoria in Alaska are described. The masts, insulation, antenna, power supply, rotary converter, discharger, and relay key of these stations are considered in detail. The climatic and radio stray conditions are shown to be unusual. Remarkable directive absorption is encountered. The favorab... View full abstract»

    Ideal "impulse excitation," as opposed to the usual quenching gap phenomena, is described. The best conditions for impulse excitation are explained. The development of a rotary sectored gap of small separation operating in a hydrocarbon atmosphere is considered. A 2,500 volt, 60 cycle transformer charges a large capacity which discharges thru the gap and a small inductance. Effective impulse excit... View full abstract»

    The results of measurements of the strength of received signals at Darien from a number of stations are given. A specially modified ultraudion circuit is used. The Austin-Cohen formula is found to give much closer agreement with the observations than the Sommerfeld formula. Relations between received current and audibility are given for the audion and ultraudion. View full abstract»

    The intensity of the electric field at a distance from a statically charged antenna is calculated from elementary considerations. The same quantity is derived for the case in which the charge is oscillating at a radio frequency. It is shown that the total charges acting on the receiver in the two cases have a ratio equal to the square of the ratio of the transmitting distance to a certain part of ... View full abstract»

    An historical survey of previous work on coupled circuits is made. There are formed, in general, in coupled circuits two waves in both primary and secondary circuits. The amplitude ratios of the longer two of these waves and of the shorter two of these waves are calculated. Neglecting resistance, the shorter waves are opposite in phase, the longer waves in phase. A simple experimental method for r... View full abstract»

    The shipboard reception by daylight of sustained wave signals from a 30 kilowatt arc at distances of the order of 4,000 miles (7,000 km.) and from a 60 kilowatt arc at distances of approximately 7,000 miles (11,000 km.) in the evening are instanced. View full abstract»
