The major effort consisted of outlining the program, defining specific areas of investigation, assigning areas of responsibility and initiating the design study phase. Progress was made in the preliminary investigations of tunnel diode mixers, backward diodes, starved L. O. mixers and low noise transistors. A test mount that will be used for the measurement of backward diode characteristics has been constructed. The design of a strip transmission line balance mixer for the starved L. O. measurements has resulted in the successful completion of the waveguide to stripline transtion and preliminary tests of the R. F. choke section. In the area of tunnel diodes a breadboard model of a balanced mixer has been completed. Author
