Westinghouse Directional Equipment

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Westinghouse is yet another of the original stalwart titans of companies that helped build America to her state of greatness, but is now mostly a footnote in the historical notes of the many companies which over the past few decades have bought out portions of the business. Founded in the late 1800s by George Westinghouse as a locomotive air brake manufacturer, the company added other markets including, notably, electric power generation and distribution. Emerging as the winner in the famous "War of the Currents" fought between Westinghouse and Thomas Edison secured George's place in history. Westinghouse also got into the commercial, military, and domestic electronics and appliance markets. I worked at the Westinghouse Oceanic Division in Annapolis, Maryland, from 1982 through 1986 and though it was a great company to work for. This advertisement for "Westinghouse Directional Equipment;" i.e., antennas, appeared in a 1945 issue of Radio News magazine.

Westinghouse Directional Equipment

Westinghouse Directional Equipment, June 1945 Radio News - RF CafeHere's the Heart of Directional Antenna Systems

In these dependable tower tuning and matching components lies the heart of directional broadcasting. They help give Westinghouse phasing and matching equipment the high efficiency, reliability and easy adjustment that meet today's needs.

These qualities stem from many features of Westinghouse phasing equipment. High Q inductors, low-loss capacitors and effective circuit design establish the high efficiency. Reliability is assured by using all components well within their ratings.

Operation has been simplified. Current division and phasing adjustment can be made while in operation. Phase adjustments can be made by a single control for each tower. The current fed to each tower can be adjusted by a single control without affecting its phase position.

Westinghouse - working with your consulting engineer - offers its wide facilities in installing complete directional equipment for every type of coverage from simple cardioid patterns (above) to more complex, intricate ones. Your nearest Westinghouse office will give you full information. Westinghouse Electric Corporation, P. O. Box 868, Pittsburgh 30, Pa. J-08109

Westinghouse tower tuning and matching components shown above are a variable, gas-filled capacitor (top, left) and a continuously adjustable inductor (below, right).

About RF Cafe

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
