A horizontal, long-wire antenna designed for reception and transmission of
low-frequency, vertically polarized ground waves .
Difference of potential applied to a vacuum tube or transistor to establish a reference operating level .
Current that flows through the base-emitter junction of a transistor and is adjusted to set the operating point of the transistor .
An array that radiates in opposite directions along the line of maximum
A method of representing two possible conditions (on or off, high or low, one or zero, the presence of a signal or absence of a signal). Electronic circuits designed to work in such a way that only two conditions are possible .
(1) A character that represents one of the two digits in the number system that has a radix of two. (2) Either of the digits 0 or 1 that may be used to represent the binary conditions of on or off .
