In the packard bell z5wt3 service manual of development after Marconi’s high voltage spark gap came the use of high voltage transformers to generate the spark gap voltage.
The ultimate came in the powerful transmitters such as those at the U. Here a 500 Hz generator, a step up transformer, and a rotary spark gap was used used to create the high voltage. Around 1900 William Duddell discovered the principle of negative resistance in connection with a carbon arc. By adding a resonant circuit to the arc it would oscillate at a frequency determined by the LC constants.
In 1902 Valdemar Poulsen, succeeded in making the arc oscillate at the higher frequencies by using electrodes operating in a sealed chamber, with hydrocarbon vapor, and a strong magnetic field. The arc became the first transmitter capable of generating pure, undamped waves. One of the more powerful arc transmitters constructed were the 1,000 watt units built for the U. Navy at Bordeaux, France, during World War I. In Java, a unit was rated at 3,000 W, the antenna was suspended over a mountain gorge. In this way, the spark would discharge the capacitor synchronously with the peak in the AC waveform. In a non-synchronous gap, the discharge could occur anywhere within the cycle.
This layer in the atmosphere, the Heaviside layer, is named after him. From the “On the Early History of Radio Guidance”. The Junior Wireless Club organizes a committee to plead the cause of the amateur before Congress. The bill is squashed and again DX IS! Many of these are still extant — try QRZ. Class B- 13 wpm code test, sending and receiving. Basic written test on theory and regulations.
Exam given at FCC examination points only. All amateur privileges except 75 and 20 meter phone were granted with a Class B license. Class C – Same as Class B, except tests given by mail. Licenses terms were 5 years, and renewable. Also, renewal required that the license holder make least three contacts on the amateur bands in the six months prior to the renewal application – and the contacts had to be on CW, not voice. All licensees had to be US citizens. If you lived within 125 miles of a quarterly examining point, you had to appear in person for the exam.
