The high output of the 460B is obtained with standard receiving
tubes by designing the amplifier p r i m a r i l y to amplify pulses of a

pulses may be amplified to a maximum level of

A phase inversion occurs within the amplifier s o that a pos-

However, either upward o r downward deflections of the CRT
is possible, since either the upper o r lower deflection plate may
be connected to the ground terminal of the Model 46OB.
Thus the Model 460B amplifies positive pulses
