2 Claims.
The invention relates to signal wave transmis;
sion systems and particularly to wave-operated
switching circuits for controlling signal trans
mission in such systems.

‘
The invention has particular'reference to car
rier wave signaling systems of the type in which
carrier energy, or special control energy other
than the carrier, is applied to the transmitter
only during periods of signal transmission, and
10- in which the gain of the receiver is automatically
controlled by the received carrier or other con
trol energy.
In systems of the above type, every time the
carrier or control energy is applied, the receiver
15 gain changes from a maximum value as limited
by the manual control to a value determined by
the carrier amplitude. To allow for correction
for fading, the range of gain needs to be at
least 10 decibels, and may be as much as 50'to
That is, every time the carrier is
20 60 decibels.
applied during the gain adjusting intervaL'the
gain is considerably higher than it should be
?nally, with consequent high noise and speech
distortion. For control current operation where

antennafdue toitheraction of the preceding auto
matic‘ gain‘ control; - This di?iculty‘has jbeen
minimized inthe past 'by the use of a‘ manual
gain control to adda loss inside the circuit, the
gain‘ of which "is being adjusted, to limit- the m.
maximum gain of the receiver, and thus effecé
tively’ to prevent‘the automatic gain control from
operating'in the region Where the static falls.
This method is not particularly suitable at an
attended station because of the wide variations
in conditions requiring lqui-ck adjustments in
gain, and, of course, is not feasible for an unat
tended station.
a
r
'
An object of the present invention is to reduce
in systems of the above type signal distortion at
the receiver’ due to‘ the ‘removal and reapplica
tion of the carrier‘or other control energy.
'
Another object‘ is 'to'pro'vide-a receiver'gain
of an optimum ‘value when the carrier or control
energy is removed and to quickly readjust the
gain tothe proper value when carrier or control
energy is again applied, if a re-adjustment is
necessary.

J, tude to annoy the receiving subscriber and to
falsely operate the voiceeoperated‘switching cir
cuits for controlling the application of carrier by
the transmitter at the terminal. The codan cir
cuit accomplishes this by disabling the output
40 of the receiver at each stationduring periods of
'
no signal transmission and removing'the disabil
ity when signal transmission is taking place."
The fundamental requirements of a codan are
( 1) that it operates on the weakest ‘carrier that
will give a commercial circuit with the static
and set noise present and (2) that it should not
operate on the strongest static through which a
commercial circuit could be given with the cir
cuit elements involved. The attaining of these
50 requirements is made d'i?’icult in present—day
radio receivers because the codan is controlled
from a point in the receiving circuit where the
signal—to-noise ratio (noise considered with car~
rier o?) is made to approach unity, no matter
how large that ratio may be at the receiving
and then to quickly readjust ,. the gain to the
optimum value for signal reception.
Other objects and features of the invention
will be brought out in the following detailed de

mitting circuit to disable said switching means,
and to prevent change in the gain of said re
ceiving circuit until said signal transmission
ceases.
2. A two-way telephone system comprising two
stations connected by a two-way transmission
medium subject to static, each station compris
ing a transmitting circuit and a receiving cir
cuit connected to said medium, a subscriber’s cir
10 cuit coupled to the output of said receiving cir
cuit and the input of said transmitting circuit,
means normally disabling the output of said re
ceiving circuit to prevent the transmission of
static energy to said subscriber’s circuit and said
15 transmitting circuit in the absence of received
telephone signal energy, means responsive to the
initiation of signals in said transmitting circuit
for sending out over said medium to the other
station said signals and control energy of dis
5
tinctive frequency, means responsive to the con
trol energy of distinctive frequency‘received from
the other station to automatically regulate the
gain of said receiving circuit in accordance with
the volume level of the received control energy,
switching means connected to said receiving cir
cuit in front of the point of gain regulation
therein, selectively responsive to the received
control energy to remove the disability from the
output of said receiving circuit, means to main 10
tain the gain of the receiving circuit at the last
established value when the reception of said
control energy ceases, and means responsive to
the initiation of signals in said transmitting cir
cuit to disable the switching means connected to 15
said receiving circuit and to substantially pre
vent change in the gain of the receiving circuit
during signal transmission from the station.
