The patent describes apparatus for detecting any signal occurring within a wide bandwidth and displaying it with a signal-to-noise performance substantially equal to that of a receiver of optimum bandwidth for that signal. The apparatus essentially comprises a special purpose cathode ray tube that functions as a plurality of different detectors that can self-optimize to detect any signal within a wide bandwidth by means of the interactions between the received signals and an electron beam having a wide range of electron velocities and traveling in a zig-zag path in the cathode ray tube.
