Abstract : The patent describes a step-up power supply which is provided by a plurality of transistors arranged to drive respective, equal turn primary windings of a transformer. The transistor bases receive a common energizing pulse and the emitters are connected to a common source of positive voltage. Each collector is connected to ground via a single respective winding so that the voltage in each conduction path is shared by only one transistor and winding, thus maximizing the total voltage applied to the transformer. The power supply amplifies pulses from a blocking oscillator to drive a tuned-plate, tuned-grid transmitter.
