WIRELESS EMANCIPATED P.Y AN
Wireless telegraphy hs been hold
down and hampered ever since its in
vention, by what operators call stat
ic electricity which often interferes
with the working of the apparatus
so as to make it useless. During the
last year the Al-ied nations have not
had to deal with this obstacle. It was
removed for them by an improve
ment discovered bv the chief engi
neer, Boy E. Woagant, of the Mar
coni Co., after 15 years of research.

riaced ,at the government disposal,
this invention has been a military
secret until now.
It remained for an American radio
expert, Boy .A. Woagant, to discover
the solution of static electricity,
and in which he has devoted much of
his life to this perplexing phenomen
on. The navy department of the
United States disclosed the secret to
France and England and they sent
men here to study the system.
Among the changes that the now
system effects) in wireless installa
tions will be the disappearance of the
great heights to catch the incoming
waves. In the Waegant invention the
wireless receiving antennae is merely
huge steel towers, heretofore built at
a few feet above the ground.
The Waegant system based on a
unique selective principal, eliminates
interference of wireless messages and
permits absolute clear communication,
regardless of the operation of other
.stations in the immediate vicinity.
