Abstract : The report discloses new vacuum-tube oscillator systems exhibiting a frequency stability determined substantially by the characteristics of the intended frequencycontrolling element. These circuits are capable of satisfactory operation at low and high frequencies and utilize a minimum of circuit components. Fixed and variable versions are given, and application to measuring equipments, primary equipments and frequency standards is indicated. A variation of one circuit offers an excellent means of determining effective resonant element series resistance. (Author)
