Abstract:

R-F Components developed for the X sub a frequency band are described. This band covers the frequency range from 5200 to 5500 megacycles which utilizes a hitherto unused portion of the spectrum. Transmitter power should be increased over that available at X-band 9,000 megacycles and antenna gain is greater than that at S-band 3,000 megacycles. This provides some advantage for the X sub a frequency over either of the two bands now in use. Components developed for the 1-12 in. x 34 in. x .064 in. wave guide include choke-flange connector, rotating joint, directional-coupler mixer, standing-wave indicator, wavemeters two types and a calibrated attenuator. These components are utilized in receiver and test equipment and have some transmitter applications. Author
