Fully Mechanical Radio Frequency Transmitter

All the modern low power radio frequency transmitters contain solid state electronic components which can operate at certain environmental conditions. We are proposing a transmitter which can transmit electromagnetic waves, which are much more tolerant in terms of environmental conditions, especially high temperature applications. There are several cases in which we need to transmit a sensed parameter over RF signal in a high temperature medium such as a jet engine or at the tip of a drilling device for oil industries which have extremely high temperature conditions. This proposed transmitter architecture can be constructed without any solidstate devices.
