Abstract : A near-range personnel beacon locator apparatus utilizes a tuned tank circuit to receive the emitted signal from an activated personnel beacon. The detected signal is applied to a D.C. amplifier to provide a D.C. level which drives a controlled variable duty cycle timer for driving a light emitting diode indicator. (Author)
