0 ft THE EVENING WORLDS iSEfJVICEUCOLUMN- By CapL Robert Scoficld Wood. (questions and answers ') P. Hausmann "Will you kindly tell ms what difference between a UV J00 and a WD 11? Is the WD 11 a hard or a toft tube? Can It be used In a re ruler regenerative circuit the aamo as the UV tube?" Answer The differ ence, primarily, between these tubes Is that the WD tube operates much more economically than the UV tubo In tho Mngle tube regenerative detector ampli fier Bet. An article appeared In these columns several months ego detailing the dlffercnco In these tubes. The VU tube consumes only .25 amperes of current per hour at one volt and can he operated from a dry cell battery, while the UV tubo takes an o-mpero an hour, which necessitates the use of a storage battery. Tho WD 11 Is a soft tube and Is Interchangeable In the ordinary single tubo circuit with the .UV 200 or I0t. It takes the same plate voltage as the soft 200 tube, namely 12 volts. Fan "Will you kindly tell me how to use a variable condenser In the place of an aerial?" Answor Some experi menters have been doing work along theso lines, but tho condensers used are especially designed and not the kind In ordinary use at the present time. There Is Utile or no Information available conmrnlng their operation, so I am afraid v. e" will have to use the orthodox types of aerial of which wo already know something. Sorry, wo -au nut help jou. J. 13. K. "I have a crystal detector set consisting of a varlo-couplcr, a ga lena detector, variable and fixed con densers and a pair of 3,000-ohm phones. My aerial at picseut in 100 feet long with a liad-ln about 22 feet long. I lmvo been getting WJZ, WOIl, WW55, WIIN. WUAY. 2XH and WI3AK. btlt have nniH'ed that they arc gradually getting fontter and faintrr, nnd tune as 1 will T am unable to bring them brick ns Btmnyly iia when I llrst got tho set. Would it help matters tiny If I added another li'ti feet to my aerial or placed another win- alongside o( tho one I nm now using, lnnking It a two-wire affair?

There Is no nee i f..i n Ioiiki r aerial, arf it would not ' i .f ji- u.m- to you. The two-wire aerial will not give any additional .strength Uiat juu can notice, and will, .t - vh ng. bring In more Interference, l.r. ng u, n ih. idvant jge There Is mU vg t:..it you can add to the present sot that will Improve Its performance, If you are desirous of receiving the sig nals stronger and want to have a great er operating range. It will be necessary for you to change from tho crystal set to a vacuum tubo set. Walt "I have a detector and two-step outfit, and want to mako a loud speak ing attachment. I am a skilled me chanic and can make a phono and would Ilko to know what suo phono I will havo to make for the best results with tho set 1 am using? Answer Wind up phono so that It has about 5,000 ohms resistance. This working In conjunc tion with the set you now have, using between 70 and 90 volts on tho Plato circuit of tho last stop of amplification, will glvo you a very efllclcnt loud speaking device which you can tiso In conjunction with a phonograph. A phone, However, Is a mighty ticklish pleco of mechanism and unless you arc versed In the Intricacies or Its construc tion, you nro sure to bo disappointed with your efforts. II. U. "I have a cabinet radio re ceiving set and a loop aerial. The set has five lamps, representing two steps of radio frequency, a detector and two steps of audio frequency. I understand that with this set I should bo able to hear Chicago and many other stations much nearer, such as Pittsburgh and Schenectady. Tho only stations that I have been able to hear have been the local stations In and around New York City. Some of these I have had trouble In getting and at best some do not come In very strong. Often I hear a station very .faintly, but when I try to strength en the signals by turning up the rheostats I get nothing but a lot of squcnU and foreign noises. Will you kindly tell mo how these distant sta tions can be heard and how to overcome some of my troubles?" Answer You can bring In the distant stations by dis carding tho loop aerial and erecting either an outdoor aerjul 100 feet long and of sufficient height to clear all surrounding objects, or Install an Indoor aerial around tho picture moulding, which has been frequently described In these columns. Tho loop aerial operat ing with tho two steps of radio fre quency has a limited range and only the local stations of medium and high power can be heard with it. The stations which you hear faintly cannot be amplified sufficiently because tho local inter ference and tube noises which are am plified to a greater extent than the fechle radio slgnaU, and consequently they arc excluded. The turning up of the rheostat only Increases the strength of the signals received within certain limits. After a certain point has been reached the tubes which are being forced begin to squeal and destroy tho Incom ing signals. With the outdoor aerial and the two steps of radio frequency backed up by the detector and two steps of amplification you will havo no trouble In hearing the fur distant sta tlons. Itadlo Hube "Will a galena or a car borundum crystal gUe the better re sults? What Is the receiving range of a crystal nof If I lengthen my aerial, which Is 100 feet, to 200 or 300 feet, will 1 1 Increase my range proportionately?

As n rule Ihe galena Is more sensitive and the enrbot nudum crystal Is hurdler and lasts longer. Yon will nut Increase your receiving tnngc by Itieieiinlng the length of your it In I. The range of the set can only be ei-tiib. lislied by actual test, lly placing it limit ing coll or a honeycomb coll designed for 1,000 metre reception In series with your antena jou will be able to hoar WVP. 2.30 P.

T,l,d, Do You Wonder I'm Proud of MyXh)erland Sedan?" ITNHE pride that every woman feels in the possession of X an Overland Sedan is founded on the worth and beauty of the car itself. See how beautifully and staunchly the body has been built. See how comfortable and roomy the scats arc, how deep and resilient the cushions, and the wonderful Triplex Spring suspension just seems to remove every bump and rut from the road. And it is so easy to drive the motor, which uses remarkably little gasoline, seems eager to go on, no matter how steep the grade or how heavy the going. There is a feeling of power to spare. No wonder people everywhere arc buying Overland Sedans. WILLYS -OVERLAND. Inc. BROADWAY AT 50TH STREET. llruokl)ii: Or. I'llUim (. mill HriHiiril Air. Tel. MrrlillK KHUII Ntnnrk: &70 llrimil M. IV I.
