  • The action of the audion as a detector and simple amplifier is explained, with the method of verification of the theory by means of oscillograms. [...] Key Method To reinforce the oscillations in the grid circuit two methods are employed: first, to couple the grid circuit to the wing circuit and arrange the latter to permit radio frequency currents to pass freely in it; and second, to use a large inductance in the wing circuit, thereby tuning it to the incoming frequency (in conjunction with the capacity…Expand Abstract
