Consciousness - 1

Consciousness-1 by Bill Jones:  There is no questioning that some people enter your life at the exact time of need - for your benefit. This has happened to you. It has happened to me. You had a need and it was fulfilled. It appeared to be a casual accident and you thought little of it at the time. But it changed your life. This was caused by Consciousness.  Consciousness is powerful in ways that are difficult to understand. Many words have been used to explain or define Consciousness but a good definition may never be available. My definition of Consciousness would be slanted toward my interest in communications.  Consciousness provides us with a function that “may” provide communication and also problems. The communication is of a complex nature. I think that it is instantaneous. It is faster than the speed of light. I believe that Consciousness is fundamental and that it will have no explanations as in a mathematical expression. While I may call Consciousness a wave function, it ma


Consciousness  2 by Bill Jones Examination of previous thoughts may require some explanation. The article concerning Consciousness was not actually intended to explain Consciousness but some of the qualities were discussed to show its inportance. Consciousness is much more than the ability to know that one knows.   The paper was intended to show a phenomenia that allows us to communicate with God. The note then brings up an important question. That is, when we pray we may only use thought, the question in mind is then – how is it possible for God to hear thought. By what means is this phenominia possible. The answer is because of Consciousness. The means of communication was suggested to be the use of the electron spin.   A single electron of course would not suffice but would require a numher of electrons to provide transmission of thought. A single electron would allow digital data transmission but thought would require more than one electron. Transmission of information is in theory

All About Bill Jones

William H. (Bill) Jones Biography: I am a scientist in the area of Electrical Engineering, having worked in research and Advanced Development for my entire career. I have worked for companies such as General Electric and Honeywell, and startup companies in Silicon Valley, California. I have designed and built numerous systems both military and commercial. I have designed advanced communications for voice and data. I worked directly with the inventor of the "Costas Loop" for ten years. I designed one of the first "over the horizon" radar systems using Doppler techniques. I worked over fifteen years in the design of computer hard disc drives in the area of read/write. I have ten patents in my areas of engineering. My first patent "W.H. Jones ET AL", Number 2,951,980 was with Dr. J.P.Costas. The patent was used in the first I/Q receiver that was built (AN-FRR-48 XW1). My design work has been from low frequency to high frequency. I am a Professional Engineer

The Bible, The God and A God

The Bible has been around for some years. The Hebrew Bible was canonized around 165 BC and the New Testament about year 400. The Bible has a number of discrepancies that are often pointed out by non-believers in God or Jesus Christ. Believers prefer to use the word Problems instead of Discrepancies. It has taken years to write the Bible and it is suggested that these discrepancies were really just problems and would eventually be corrected, if not by man, then God. I know missionaries that spent over ten years writing a Bible for those that use a language where no Bible had been written. The authors of the new Bible noted the problems (discrepancies) but understood that the problems had to be included as they were in the original Bible. This is to say that most non-believers have not spent a great amount of time noting the problems that they call discrepancies. Many non-believers tend to feel that they are perhaps among the first to note the problems. They are not. The problems are dis

The Trinity

The Trinity by Bill Jones   If you do not believe in the Trinity then some will say that you are not saved. The Bible does not mention the Trinity, but the Bible says that if you believe in Jesus Christ then you are saved. The Trinity is a concept of man. But, the Trinity has great following. A majority of Churches have the Trinity in their Creed. The Trinity may be considered Biblical but is inferred by man.   The Nicene creed was held in the year 325 ad. The Nicene Creed was voted on by man and states that Jesus Christ is equal to God the Father. This was voted on by about 300 Bishops and probably allowed the Trinity to be accepted.   There are several Apostles Creeds that are the words of man. The words are the general beliefs of the Church. The words are not from the Apostles.   The Catholic Church has over a billion members. It is a mainstream Church. The Catholic Church accepts the Trinity. The Catholic Church claims to be the one true Church and this is in the Church Creed.   Yo

Automatic Gain Control.

There have been many ways to control the gain of radios over the years and will discuss several of the important ways starting close to the beginning of the AC radio.  While I may not cover all of the ways used for control but will cover the important ways and will discuss some of the reasons for their use.I plan to cover the 1920’s to at least to the present day volume control plus AGC (Automatic Gain Control) gain control – this would be the last of the tube radios. I plan to provide a simple but accurate analysis of the automatic gain control.  Another proper name for AGC is AVC, or Automatic Volume Control, but here we will generally use the term Automatic Gain Control. To be accurate I believe that the term Automatic Volume Control is a more proper name if you are interested in marketing. I tend to use th?e term AGC, but the terms are used interchangeably.  I have never seen the AGC analyzed before. The analysis can be very tedious without some simplifying assumptions. I have made

Variable Capacitor Analysis.

Variable Capacitor Analysis   Bill Jones The capacitor to be analyzed is shown in Figure one. It is desired to find the capacitance C (A+B) and how it varies with respect to d.                                                                         Figure one shows two capacitors. For our analysis they will be connected in parallel.  The stators are separated by a distance x and the distance d is from stator A to the rotor. We are interested in the total capacitance C (A+B). The rotor thickness is negligible for our purpose. We normalize for simplicity.          A=area in cm. squared. K=1 (dielectric constant).  d=distance in cm.  C in pf.      We set x=1 and P=1 for simplicity since we are not interested in the absolute value. This will give equation2. A plot of the equation is shown in Figure 2.  If we imagine the rotor plate to be perfectly centered at d=0.5, the capacitance is a minimum value.  If d varies in either direction from d=0.5 the capacitance increas

Signal Generators.

Signal Generators The H.P. 606 and the Hickok 288X By Bill Jones This paper is not meant to suggest that the HP 606 and the Hickok 288x are in any way equivalent generators.  The HP was a modern laboratory generator in its day.  It is mostly a tube type generator - it used miniature tubes. It was never meant for radio service. It was expensive and its features were not necessary for any radio repair shop. Today however the HP is available at a moderate cost and offers those interested in radio repair and Amateur Radio work a bargain generator.  I find it quite useful and even a joy to use because of its known frequency and signal level outputs.  It is simple and straight forward to use.   The Hickok generator was really meant for radio repair and in its time it was a desirable generator for the radio shop and not an inexpensive generator. The Hickok is today and perhaps has always been a misunderstood generator because of its complex design.  It was cleverly designed.
