BROADCASTING STATIONS' WAVE LENGTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 July 1939
BROADCASTING STATIONS' WAVE LENGTHS. Control by Stars, Plus a Tuning Fork T The stars in the heavens have been harnessed to prevent overlapping among broadcasting stations. By their aid, complaints of interference be tween any of the 121 stations in Aus tralia have been practically elimin ated.
