Abstract:

A study was made of antennaverters and antennafiers which are antenna-receiving system combinations having part of the receiver circuitry integrated into the antenna structure. The antennaverter combines the antenna and converter into a single unit, and the antennafier combines the antenna and RF amplifier into a single unit. Antennaverters and antennafiers are practical with presently available solid-state devices such as the tunnel diode. Advances in solidstate circuitry and molecular electronics should soon make practical the integration of an entire receiver except perhaps for output display into the antenna structure. Author
