  • Patent number: 8314526
    Abstract: An engine generator is disclosed in which an engine drives a generator and causes a cooling fan to rotate to cool the generator. The generator includes an intake duct having an intake port provided in a lower portion thereof and oriented downward. Moisture-containing outside air sucked through the intake port impinges on a barrier plate disposed in the intake duct. The barrier plate is located above the intake port and faces the intake port. The moisture adheres to the barrier plate in the form of water droplets, which then fall toward the intake port after having separated from the outside air.

  • Publication number: 20100007742
    Abstract: A high frequency receiver cancels a plurality of noise signals which are contained in a high frequency signal and outputted from a plurality of noise signal sources. The high frequency receiver cancels the noise signals using a plurality of pick-up noise signals extracted from a plurality of pick-up antennas disposed near the noise signal sources. At least one of the pick-up noise signals is selected in descending order of their effects on the degradation of reception quality, thereby completing noise cancelling in a short time.
