Abstract : This patent discloses a solid state transmit-receive switching element having multiple resonant circuits connected in a bridge arrangement by back-to-back zener diodes. While receiving, the zener diodes have a high impedance and the bridge arrangement acts as two series tuned circuits in parallel. While transmitting, the zener diodes breakdown and the bridge arrangement appears electrically as two parallel tuned circuits in series. (Author)
