Abstract:

The design and fabrication of an improved direction finder set operating in the frequency range of 0.54 to 30 mc is described. The specified method of approach called for modification of existing components of direction finder set ANTRD-4A to meet improved performance requirements. The work consisted mainly of modifications to the antenna system, goniometers, goniometer drive, and visual azimuth indicator, as well as providing a facility for semi-automatic bearing readout, and adding a second DF operating position. In addition, console type operating positions were substituted for the standard rack type, and the target transmitter was redesigned. A discussion is included of the operation and final testing of the improved HF-MF direction finder set. Author
