  Jennings Technology - Technotes - Vacuum Relays, Vacuum Capacitors, Vacuum Interruptors, High Voltage Capacitors, Gas ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The current rating given in the tables of our spec sheets is the maximum current the vacuum capacitor at maximum working voltage capacity can handle continuously under normal convection cooling at an ambient temperature of 25°C. Accurate measurements of RF currents and temperatures at specific frequencies and various capacity settings have been made.
Momentary currents may exceed the catalog continuous current rating by a factor of the square root of the duty cycle, provided the working voltage is not exceeded.
The average modulated carrier current is 1.225 times the unmodulated carrier current, therefore a capacitor current rating of 1.2 times the carrier current will be sufficient even though the peaks-of-modulation currents are twice the carrier current.

 Carrier Current
Carrier current devices suffer from a major flaw, in that they are usually stopped dead by powerline transformers.
Carrier current devices can be detected as standard wire line devices with a TDR, oscilloscope, or with a carrier current receiver (which can be purchased from ).
Carrier current devices can transmit on any frequency below 500 kHz (150-300 kHz being VERY popular) and in one of several modulation formats, while commercial receivers are generally tuned to only a small fraction of the available band and using one modulation scheme.

 The p-n diode current
The minority carrier densities in the quasi-neutral regions are obtained from equations (4.4.16) and (4.4.17).
The current due to recombination in the depletion region was assumed to be constant.
Since the carrier recombination primarily occurs within the quantum well (as it should be in a good laser diode), the quasi-Fermi energy does not change in the graded regions, while the effective density of states varies as the 3/2 power of the effective mass, which varies only slowly within the graded region.

 Carrier current - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carrier current is a method of low power AM broadcasting that is generally not licensed in the United States, but is allowed on the campus of any school, so long as the normal FCC Part 15 Rules are adhered to when measured at the edge of the campus.
Carrier current stations generally only have an effective radiated power of a few watts.
Many carrier current stations have been, and continue to be, replaced by these technologies as well.

 Carrier wave - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A carrier wave, or carrier is a waveform (usually sinusoidal) that is modulated (modified) to represent the information to be transmitted.
Carrier waves are used when transmitting radio signals to a radio receiver.
The carrier must be reintroduced at the receiver by a beat frequency oscillator (BFO).

 CARRIER CONSULTING - Professional Telecommunications Consulting
For example, if your current carrier gives you very good interstate rates, but most of your calling is intrastate (within your same state), you would be better off with a carrier that features very low intrastate prices.
For example, one carrier may have the lowest rates if the client commits to a term plan, but if the specific carrier has strict penalties for cancellation and does not guarantee the rates, it could be risky.
Another carrier may have slightly higher prices, but features fixed rates and does not require a term contract These types of factors are reviewed when making a carrier recommendation.

 History of Radio Station WLCR-AM Carrier Current, Lewisburg/White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia and The Radio Group   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
WLCR-AM Carrier Current was a radio station operated at a Summer camp for boys and girls called Camp Shaw-Mi-Del-Eca located between Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
In a Carrier Current broadcast, another form of low power broadcasting, radio signals are sent through the electrical transmission lines of a building or series of buildings on a campus.
Usually the sky conditions and the current time[the radio station's clock was corrected each day with time transmitted by the National Bureau of Standards' (now known as the National Institute of Standards and Technology) short-wave radio station, WWV] were also broadcast with the temperature; these time--temperature--sky condition reports were announced frequently on WLCR-AM Carrier Current.

 Amplitude Modulation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
This is because the Audio Voltage modulating the carrier doubles the RF voltage at the peak, since the load resistance is constant, the RF current doubles at the same instant as the RF voltage.
In fact, the true RMS current of an AM waveform does not change until modulation exceeds 100% in the negative direction, unless there is nonlinearity or some sort of carrier level shift action taking place.
With reverse carrier control, there will be a noise reduction effect with receivers having average-AGC (typical of older tube-type receivers), because the elevated carrier will cause their AGC to reduce gain during these quiet periods, and raise gain during periods of heavy modulation.

 Bipolar Junction Transistors
The values of the minority carrier densities at the edges of the depletion regions are indicated on the Figure 5.3.1.
The emitter current therefore equals the excess minority carrier charge present in the base region, divided by the time this charge spends in the base.
The forward- and reverse-bias transport factors are obtained by measuring the current gain in the forward active and reverse active mode of operation.

Once you request that your number be ported to a new carrier, your current carrier must comply, even if you still have an unpaid balance or owe a termination fee.
Your old carrier is allowed to charge you a “reasonable” fee for switching, although your new carrier may pick up the tab.

The law allows carriers to charge a fee to recover the costs associated with switching you to a new carrier and your current telephone service provider might impose a “transfer of service fee” or “switching fee” to transfer you to a new carrier.
Telephone companies are authorized, but not required, by the federal government to recover their costs associated with making LNP available, and are limited on how long they may impose any fees for that cost recovery to five years from the date the local telephone company first begins collecting the charge from its customers.
After you contact the new carrier and make the decision to switch, it could take from a few hours to several business days for the transfer to be complete.
