Abstract:

The first low noise tube was completed. A second tube is nearing final alignment - this tube will incorporate an output waveguide slide in the helix wedge support block. The slide has markedly reduced wedge breakage to the stage where it no longer is a serious problem. Work has started on the reduced mass cathode - heater assembly, which, when incorporated tube no. 3, on should eliminate the present heater burnout problem. Work is in progress, assembling the YIG balls in the non-reciprocal version of the filter. These balls will be magnetically orientated perpendicular to the plane of the common waveguide wall slide by utilizing an electromagnet and vibrator as assembly tools. Author
