Abstract:

Construction is described of a 250 watt power source to operate in the 1-10 gc range. Operating in conjunction with this power source is an attenuation system providing output power from the milliwatt range to approximately half the total transmitter power. Attenuation over the 3.0 to 10 gc range is accomplished by radiating the full power of the transmitter into an anechoic chamber and intercepting the desired output level with a receiving antenna. Commercial atte uation techniques will be used for the lower frequencies since the size of the antennas is prohibitive at these frequencies. The transmitting and attenuating system was tested at 10 gc and it performed as expected. Author
