The uses detailed below represent but a few of the many
applications of the Panadaptor. Inquiries are invited
regarding the application of these instruments to particular
Panadaptor equipments are uniquely suited for monitoring
communications frequencies at airports and communication
centers for possible off- frequency transmissions. The
immediate appearance of such signals can be detected
instantaneously and tuned to quickly with absolute minimum
chances of message loss. High resolution makes the equipment
invaluable for detecting and analyzing interference caused
by splatter, improper location of carrier frequencies,
spurious modulation, parasitics, etc.
The Panadaptor is invaluable in universities and technical
schools for its graphic indications of various R. F.
phenomena, making them easy to under- stand and remember.
The Panadaptor offers visual means of examining oscillator
performance, especially in the VHF regions where small
changes in circuit constants, both physical and electrical,
produce large frequency variations. Oscillators can be
checked against standards for determining frequency and the
effects of load changes, component variations, shock, and
humidity, and thermal changes upon frequency stability.
Parasitic oscillations are easily spotted and identified.
