In order to produce the most efficient and reliable communication system for shipboard use by the U. S. Navy, it is proposed that P.A. couplers of an octave range be used instead of conventional 2-32 mc transmitters. This configuration will require a considerably greater number of P.A. couplers however, the amplifier per unit cost and complexity is greatly reduced. However, at 10 kw power level, the power supply of each P.A. becomes significant in size and weight. If the proposed system is to be feasible, considerable size and weight must be saved over conventional 60-cycle power supply designs. The purpose of this cursory study is to do preliminary investigation into power supply size and weight savings with an eye on cost. Two different supplies are being considered a unit, 16 KVA supply, to power an individual P.A. coupler and a composite, 160 KVA supply, to power 10 units from a central point.
