The model of a radio pulse stroboscopic converter consisting of a mixer and a narrowband filter tuned to the difference frequency of the carrier signals is considered. We demonstrate that the measurement of the phase structure of the input signals can be made at low frequency by amplitude methods by changing the phase both in the channel of the gating radio pulses and in the low frequency channel. The radio-pulse gating scheme goes into a phase-sensitive mode when the system clock frequency is

To eliminate parasitic modulation, which distorts the envelope of the output signal of the converter in a phase-sensitive mode, it is proposed to use an auto-shift circuit with a falling "slow" sawtooth voltage when generating gating radio pulses.
