HOW RADIO WORKS GREAT EXPERTS ACCOUNT SIMPLE AND LUCID [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

HOW RADIO WORKS GREAT EXPERTS ACCOUNT SIMPLE AND LUCID Mr. David Sarnoff. general aianager of the Eadio Corporation of America, in the course of a most interesting story toM to Mary Margaret irBwde, and reproduced hi the ''Saturday Evening Post' of August 7, has the following: At this point, by special reauost. as the broadcast announcers put it, I am going to try to tell in a non-technical way1 how Tadio works. I find it difficult, however, to deal with this subject on a strictly non -technical basis. Broadly speaking, radio broadcasting, or radio-telegraph communication, is carried on by an electric-wave motion which, although invisible to the eye, has many analogies in our daily life. Thus, a stone dropped into a pool of water creates a wave motion which travels out ward from the point where the stone is dropped. \Tour cook strikes or vibrates a bell to call you to dinner and the transfer of this signal . takes place by soulid waves made up of varying degrees of air pressure.

UNDERGROUND AERIALS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

UNDERGROUND AERIALS The underground aerial ehould be an Interesting hunting ground for tie ama teur who has the facilities for experi menting with it, and some American wireless engineers are claiming wonder* fid results from underground aerials. The usual method of laying an under ground aerial is to dig a long trench arid suspend the aerial wire in it, care being taken, of course, to insulate the wire from actual contact with the earth Another underground method for which success has lately been claimed con sists of an insulated wire laid in a num ber of spirals r' different depths from the surface- A hole is dug with a diam eter of about 3ft 6in. At the bottom of this the herial wire is coiled in spiral form and coven 1 with a few inches of earth. Then another spiral is continued from the first one- and covered, and so on, the end of the ?rtire being joined to the aerial terminal in the usual way. It is said that these underground aerials are entirely unaffected by atmospherics.<...

RECEIVER FAULTS Hints for Rectifying [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

RECEIVER FAULTS ? ♦ ? Hints for Rectifying Continual crackling, rushing, roaring noises that drown all signals save the loudest, and cause one to tear the 'phones off, are the most common symptoms of a 'seedy' valve set. The worst part about it, too, ia that quite a number of different things can cause tke trouble. Probably the most usual is that ono of the cells of the H.T. battery has developed an internal fault, and* is indulging in a little effort of local and individual internal activity. By cutting cells out of circuit one by one the faulty one can be located and dispensed with. Having tested the H.T. battery and found it to be O.K., the next thing to do is to examine the accumulator. Take note whether - there is any sign of sul pha ting, which can easily be identified by the white substance that collects on the plates, should this be happening. To avoid trouble from this source, every one who handles accumulators should possess a voltmeter, and should test the cells while the...

KNOCKS FATAL TO EFFICIENCY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

KNOCKS FATAL TO EFFICIENCY. Be careful not to drop or knock the receivers. Cases have been known where by a sharp knock the permanent magnetism of the receiver cores has been lost. It takes little to bend the diaphragms, too, and oft-times these are rendered less effective by bems dropped. They are of v'ery thin metal, and should they become bent or dinted the ebonite rap should be re moved and the diaphragms carefully straightened.

FOR CRYSTAL USERS MOUNTING AND USING VARIOUS SUGGESTIONS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

FOR CRYSTAL USERS MOUNTING AND USING VARIOUS SUGGESTIONS Manufacturers in increasing numbers arc placing crystals on the market ready mounted in suitable cups. Seeing that the majority of crystals arc used l-.v beginners, who cauuot be expected al v.avs to realise the importance of sucn mattrs as not overheating tel) metal when mounting, avoiding touching the surface of the crystal with warm fingers, and other important points, ready mounted crystals should go far towards making good reception more general. Facility of interchange will bring about in* turn greater curiosity on the part of the user as to the relative merits of the various crystals. We must re member that the requirements of all listeners are not the same, for the man v,ho lives in the shadow of a broadcast ing station can veil sacrifice, a little sensitiveness in his crystal in return for added reliability. On the other hand, the man living, say, 25 to 30 nviles from the station, will need to get a very fine adjustme...

BROADCASTING VOCALITY WORTH SOME STUDY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

BROADCASTING VOCALITY WORTH SOME STUDY s lion? before broadcasting- most °? us knew many other people by sight alone. But since broadcasting we know hundreds, perhaps thousands, by voice alone. And just as we often decide whether or not we like certain persons from a glance at their faces, so now we frequently decide whether or not we like others by the sound of their voices. It is widely believed that the fate is the index of the mind. As a guide to character, a frank, open countouauoo, is accepted by many people :is infallible. Similarly a sly and shifty face is generally assunted to indicate character of the opposite quality. CknriiL-ter is made up :i many com ponents. Its indices, too, arc many. Legs and feet, for example, are often as expressive as face and voiee. The only safe maxim in judging character is. ''You cannot be too earfeul.' For you never can teli. As Emerson re marks, ''Everyone of us lias at some tinie beeu ifca victim of a well-toned and cunning voice, and perha...

RUPERT BROOKE'S GRAVE [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 17 October 1926

RUPERT BROOKE'S GRAVE j j 1 Included in the pilgrimage of St. Bar nabati, which visited Gallipots war graves, was a ?visit to Homer's 'tower- ing crag of Sky-ros,' where eJeeps the poet, Uupert Brooke. This would be a real pilgrimage in itself, for it meant a five hours' walk, from the. landing- place to this lonely island grave, the white marble monument of which can just be seen from the sea. Tt lies in an isolated spot at the. deserted end of the island, but the valley in which the grave is situated is covered with pale blue ane mones. OTChids, roek hyacinths, and such 1 ?wild flowers ae one finds rarely in Greece, while the perfume of wiJd thyme and mint, growing between the bushes of wild olivo, makes swpct the breath of soli tude, broken only by the --riea of 6-?3- gulls.
