Pulsed driven system of two coupled van der Pol oscillators in the regime of synchronization 1:1 and «oscillator death» is researched. The existence of islands of quasi-periodic regimes on the parameter plane period – amplitude of perturbation in the radiophysics experiment are shown. The different types of oscillations in this system are illustrated.
