CONTROL OF AMPLIFICATION (impedance networks, e.g. attenuators, H03H; control of transmission in lines H04B 3/04) [2013‑01]
NOTE

  • This subclass covers:
    • control of gain of amplifiers or frequency-changers,
    • control of frequency range of amplifiers,
    • limiting amplitude or rate of change of amplitude
  • Attention is drawn to the Note following the title of subclass H03F.
