Examples

  • I must assume that my readers are familiar with the receiving apparatus of wireless telegraphy, which must be "tuned" by the oper-ator until its own vibratory quality is in exact harmony with the vibrations -- the extremely rapid impacts -- of those short electric wave-lengths we call Hertzian, and which carry the wireless messages.

    The Moon Pool

  • “tuned” by the operator until its own vibratory quality is in exact harmony with the vibrations — the extremely rapid impacts — of those short electric wavelengths we call Hertzian, and which carry the wireless messages.

  • Engrossed as he was with the transmission of substantial amounts of power, however, he almost perversely rejected the notion of transmission by Hertzian waves, which he considered to be wasteful of energy.

  • In other words the TSJ knew quite well that it could not close RCTV and diligently it has paved the way through indirect means for the government seizure not only of the Hertzian range of RCTV, but also of its properties in transmission equipment and the land where it is placed and perhaps even the studios?

  • I do not care about what comes next on the #2 Hertzian wavelengths: as soon as darkness falls on RCTV I will turn off the TV and go to bed.

  • For more than a week, the man's friends had known that Jake's yellow-haired wife was living in Delos with a man from the short-grass country -- it was common gossip among the train-men on the division, and it flowed into the repair shops as naturally as Hertzian waves agitate the antennæ of a wireless station.

  • When he speaks of tuning his apparatus until Hertzian radiations have been eliminated, he is referring to using ELF vibrations: "... the Hertzian effect has gradually been reduced through the lowering of frequency."

  • To this day, however, there exists a confusion amongst researchers, experimentalists, popular authors and laymen as to the meaning of non-Hertzian waves and the method Dr. Tesla was promoting for the wireless transmission of power.
