Abstract: A transmitter power control circuit which provides normal power control functions, and provides a high speed loop response when abrupt changes in output power are required. The circuit utilizes an electronic switch to provide adaptive filtering to permit narrow bandwidth filtering during normal steady state operation of the transmitter and wide bandwidth filtering during desired abrupt changes in transmitter power output. This allows rapid changes in transmitter output power when desired, while substantially eliminating undesired noise during normal operation.

Abstract: Circuit stage for the optimal driving and very highly efficient operation of a tetrode having a control grid and a plate, including a grid voltage source including two partial voltage sources being connected together at a common junction point with opposite polarity with respect to the control grid, and a control diode connected between the common junction point and the plate.
