Abstract:

A combined antenna transmitter joined for transmitting a message signal includes a switching signal source modulated by the message signal. The switching signal is provided to a transistor at an operating frequency. The transistor switches a high voltage input through the transistor, a choke inductor and a boost inductor. A bypass capacitor is provided between the inductors for shielding the high voltage input. An antenna is connected between the boost inductor and the transistor for transmitting a radio frequency signal at the operating frequency. There is thus provided a compact, efficient transmitter and antenna assembly for transmitting modulated message signals.
