THIS text is intended to be the basis of a fourth year radio engineering course for telecommunication engineers, and assumes a normal knowledge of electrical engineering and physics. It consists of a large number of approaches to specified measurements ; in the new edition exact procedures are outlined for the more difficult types of measurement. The cathode ray tube, with linear time-base, is freely used, and measurements of modulation and the frequency drifts of quartz-crystals, when used with valves as frequency controls, are included. The standardized methods of ordinary measurements on circuit elements are numerous, and students would require a plan in order to make a useful selection.
