BROADCASTING Extending the Service The reduction in wave length of broadcasting station 2FG, has been &nbsp; &nbsp; brought about by the Postal Department with a view to giving better service to listeners. Much can be, said about the change from the technical point of view, but the underlying idea is that the wave of 412 metres will give better results to listeners generally, and work in best with the Department's plans for ex- tending broadcasting throughout New South Wales. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The next step in the development of &nbsp; radio service Will be the establishment of relay stations at various places in the country, so that the programmes of the Sydney stations can be sent out again from those points with increased power. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Just where and when these relay sta- tions will be established cannot yet be stated.

Merfleld, F.R.A.S., re- search assistant to Sir Thomas Lyle, at Melbourne University, who has been appointed Australian representative to the Solar Physics Commission of the International Astronomical Union, em- phasised to-day the urgent need for a suitable telescope at the Common- wealth Solar Observatory, at Mt. Stromlo. "The lack of adequate instrumental equipment," he said, "is a disgrace and the position has reached the stage where Australia's indifference is regarded as a joke. Amateur astronomers in other countries possess better equipment than the Commonwealth Government does." Even in the East Indies, he found better equipment. He doubted whether the Federal Government intended do- ing anything. The amount required &nbsp; in Australia was not as great as one might expect, and is within the means of one or several interstate citizens, but the great difficulty is that so long as the Gover...
