SNOW SPORTS TO BE BROADCAST [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

SNOW SPORTS TO BE BROADCAST Plans have been completed for the broadcasting by Station 2\\\,, Sydney, on Next Saturday and Sundaj', of tl;e snow revels from Mt. Kosciusko. By means of the, Tourist Depart- ments snow tractor, broadcasters in- tend , to climb the mountain over the snow to a place where sports will be held, and from there to describe the scone, and give p. concert. A. dozen Sydney artists will comprise the partj and plenty of life will ho given to the sports by the presence of large parties ol school children who are spending their holidays on the mountain. From a mechanical and scientific point of view, this .broadcast is one of the most difficult yet tattempted in Aus- tralia, but in view of the great succès« made by the other radio, stations (2FC) of a stunt from an aeroplane in flight, there 1« "every reason to expect that the. transmission ' will be thoroughly successful. <\l~

RADIO NEWS MACHINE THAT ENABLES DEAF TO HEAR [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

RADIO NEWS MACHINE THAT ENABLES DEAF TO HEAR Groat interest was shown by listen- ers in and around London in the ex- periments to discover the amount of interference caused when two prp grammes on wave lengths 100 metres apart were transmitted simultaneously, one from the Oxford-street station, and the other I rom the spare transmitter at Marconi House. Something like 20,000 lotter.s have been received by the B.I5.C. on the subject. Generally speaking-, the experiments were successful. Reports received show that most people, particularly those using valve sets, had no dlffi julty in separating the two program- mes. Many listeners, finding that the direct-coupled circuit did not enable thom to separate tlîe transmissions, in- troduced a lose-coupled circuit with excellent results in the second trial. The tests wore purely experimental, and there were no immediate prospcts of a rgular service of alternative spro grammes, nor will Mio Government departments nonccrnccl be likely to sanc...

HIDDEN MILLIONS AUSTRALIA'S HOPE HAVE WE OIL SUPPLIES (Contributed). [Newspaper Article] — The Canberra Times — 17 September 1926

HIDDEN MILLIONS AUSTRALIA'S HOPE HAVE WE OIL SUPPLIES (Contributed). If oil were discovered In sufficient nuantitlcs In Australia, petrol could be iold at a shilling a gallon; the nation could be saved an annual tribute of Ç 8,000,000 to overseas Interests; and what might prove a fatal weakness in Lime of war would be removed. "Who has Oil has Empire," the re- narli of Henry Berenger to Clemenceau has become world-famous. Australia may not seek Empire, but she wants .safety, and In regard to safety, the remark has even more force. Who controls oil, controls the Pacific. If Australia's present supply of oil wcic cut off, trafile, as we know 'It to-day, would be almost at a standstill. Many .'actoiies would have to close, farmers would have to let their tractors rust unused, oil burning ships would lie Idle, and all aeroplane services would cease. The community, in fact, would bo al- most paralysed. In time of war, th,c effects would bo disastrous. An enemy able to break our overseas ...
