gradually I built up the evidence to
show that my supposition was at lea«,
worthy of further investigation.
"I discovered that during the sum

from static, despite warm, sultry
weather. Invariably, such nights were
those when the moon was in the first
or last quarter. I discovered also that
many nights which began with the
atmosphere perfectly "dead", so fat
as radio reception was concerned,
showed marked improvement later Ii.

closer to the horizon.
"The night of December 28th of last
year was a typical one. The air was
crisp, cold and clear and there was
no appreciable moisture, in spite of
which it was impossible to pick up
any but the most powerful distant
stations and very few of those. The
moon was just approaching fullness.
