Abstract:

A summary technical report of the National Defense Committee NDRC activities is presented. The methods and results are given which cover widely varied direction finder and antenna research and development. One part deals with the basic studies in direction finding, including means of measuring ground constant, and of rating DF systems in terms of wanted to unwanted pickups. Also discussed is the effects of connecting cables with Adcock systems. Another section deals with physical equipment and systems developed under the direction of Division 13. Finally, the early work of sferics, the use of radio direction finding for locating storms, is reviewed.
