Abstract : This program entailed the design and development of a broadband amplifier module in which triodes and tetrodes are employed to generate 5 kw of peak power output over a 10 percent frequency spectrum (to the 1-db points) centered at 1300 mc, with a gain of up to 51 db. The program of technical work culminated in the successful fabrication and testing of two such modules. Presented are methods of approach to the solution of various problems encountered. Photographs, charts, and schematic diagrams provide a comprehensive physical description of the modules and present complete performance data. Overall conclusions are derived from the work done throughout the period of the contract, and from the performance of the modules. Recommendations are made concerning areas of further work and investigation. (Author)
