VACUUM TUBE USED
AS AN OSCILLATOR
Transforms Direct Current Ener
gy Into Undamped Altynating
Current of Arry Frequency.
As an oscillator, a three-electrode
viicuuiii tut has the property of
transforming the dlrei-t current ener
jry supplied to the plate circuit Into
an undamped 'alternating current of
any desired frequency. By connect
ing the tul ftiuctlotiliiK us an oscil

alternating currents have heen oIh
tallied raiiKinff In frequency from one
half cycle per second to 130,000,000
cycles per second. In fact, a vncuura
tulje used ns nn oscillator Is about the
only source of nndninped alternating
current at railio frequency avuiluhle
for the amateur. .
Undamped or continuous wave tel
