Addition of a variable con

the primary of a loose coupler
often helps to tune out the
undeslred signals. '
The sliders on tuufng colli of-'
ten make poor contacts . with
the slide rod. Thus much of the
signal strength Is lost. You enn
overcome this by soldering a
flexible Wire to the slider.
Increase length of spreaders
of two, three or four-wire aerials
from six to ten feet for best
results. Each wire should be
from four to six feet from its
neighbor. ' Two wires one or two
feet apart are no better than
one wire. Likewise four wl.'es
on short spreaders, are no bet

Care should, be exercised by the
operator when adjusting a crystal de
tector to see that his fingers do not
louch the surface of the crystal or the
contact point of the little spring. The
oil secretion that exists In the skin
together with the dust that It collects
will render a crystul detector inopera
tive by the Insulating film that It will
cause to form on the portion of the
crystal surface that is touched. Should
the surface of the crystal ajret dirty
as evidenced by the received s'gnnla
becomlng . weaker and " weaker, try
cleaning the crystal with alcohol and
a little brush. Or If this doea not seem
to remedy the trouble, chip off old stir-
face so that an entirely new surface
is presented to the spring.
AMATEURS SHOULD PLAY FAIR
Radio Inspector Schmidt Urges That
They Learn the Laws and
Nine out of every ten radio fans are
good sports, but the tenth is either a
'fan with poor Judgment or a "rotter.
It Is up to the umaleurs to see that
restrictions are not Imposed upon
'them, by playing fair, says ltudio In
spector L. It. Schmidt of the Ninth
This can be done by observing cer
tain cautions and by becoming posted
on the radio laws and regulations. A
'copy of these regulations may be ob
tained from the superintendent of doc
uments, government printing office,
: Washington, D. C, for IS rents. It Is
'worth while to spend 15 cents In order
to be a "square shooter" In the radio
The great trouble with amateurs Is
that when they want to send a mes
sage around a corner they put on rll
the power they have with the hope
that some one in Texas might pick up
their message. The object should be
to use the minimum amount of power
to get the message to its destination.
. "In all circumstances, except In case
of signals or radiograms relating to
vessels in distress, all stations shall
use the minimum amount of energy
necessary to curry out uny communi
Amateurs should keep their wave
length to 200 meters.
They should use a "pure wave" or,
as the regulations statu, "If the send
ing apparatus is of such u character
that the energy Is radluted in two or
more wave lengths, more or less sharp
ly defined, as Indicated by a sensitive
wave meter, the energy in no one of
the lesser waves shall exceed 10 per
centum of that in the greuter."
Tlie wave must be "shnrp." . A to
this the regulations state: "At all sta
tions the logariuhmlc decrement per
complete oscillation in the wave trains
emitted by tlie transmitter shall not
exceed two-tenths when sending dis
tress signals or signals and messages
Amateurs frequently are at fault in
culling stations too often. The law
states that they run call three times,
send "l e" once and sign theiP'.statlon
cull three times; but often the ama
teurs will send the call a dozen or
more times. y.
HOW TO GROUND AN AERIAL
If Properly Done It Really Protect!
the Property From
Lightning. ". '
.Generally Seaklng, aerials do not
attract lightning, bilt they do store up
.atmospherical electricity, and, . at
course, this condition does crest a
hazard. 'However, when the serial' l
proierly grounded it then acts as a
lightuliig rod mid really protects the
property from this electrical hucard.
Hrtelly, tlie fire underwriters require
that the serial be grounded wild) not
lu use by a copper wite no smaller
than H. H. (luuge No. or lurger, and
run Mild wire us directly as possible
to the oul side ground. .
1'hls means that water, gas or steam
pipes inside the iroierty cunnut be
lined for a lightning ground, because
if ever this 'ground was culled Into
service there is possibility that Are
and loss of Ufa may result. Ho do not
use luslde grounds fur lightning pre-tectleu.
