Thus, the second signal coming from the receiver
IB will be used to produce a letter while the ñrst
signal at a later time is used to unblock the
amplifier.
If, now, it is desired to send a second letter
such as the letter “E,” Fig. 2 (C) there may be

signal for the letter “T” will be app-lied to unblock

Attention is also directed to the fact that while
the reproduction of intelligence is, in the pre
ferred embodiment illustrated, controlled by the
blocking and unblocking o-f an ampliñer, this
control is, in eiîect, an electronic on oil“ switch
between the receiver and reproducer and it is
contemplated that other equivalent switching
for the letter “E” is coming from the receiver. 15 devices either electronic or electromagnetic could
be used.
