Here are some hints for radio be- |
1. F-irst determine where you are;
going to place your aerial wire.
Get as much of it as you can in
a horizontal position, relative to the
ground. If possible have it in the
shape of an inverted letter "L."
with the free end pointing away
from the broadcasting station.
Have the end which goes into your
house pointing toward the broad
casting station. This is important.
See the aerial is well insulated;
No. 14 bare copper wire, single
strand, will do, but seven stranded
phosphor-Haronzc or copper weld is
I better. In case it is necessary to
make any joints in the serial wire j
see they are soldered. Aerial should
be thirty feet above the' ground
and at least 150 feet long.
2. Next make your ground con
nection. A good ground is impera
I tive. In city homes this Is best
obtained by soldering a wire to
your water pipe system or to the
steam heat radiator. If these are
not available (in country homes)
bury a sheet of copper plate twelve
feet square- in moist earth.
3. There is no danger from light
ning in wireless sets properly
grounded, but-4t is best * to get a
single pole double throw switch
and copnect it up so that the aerial
can be grounded when the receiv
ing set is not being used.
4. In making electric connections
between different parts of your ap
paratus use ordinary lamp cord No.
18 B and S gauge. See that all
your connections are tightly made.
"A laugh, a side-splitting tough."
says an observer. "Is In atorfe for

Wireless Is not a black art! There
is no mystery about it. It is as j
simple as A, B. C. Operating a
small radio receiver is just like
focusing a camera or playing the
phonograph. There are no accurate
or painstaking adjustments to be
made, no fuss, no bother. "Turn
the knob and listen"?that is all
there is to it. No expensive install
ing to do. The thrill that radio
brings can be experienced by any

SET BIG PROBLEM
Three problems stand in the way
of radio becoming a universal method
of receiving news, addresses, weather
reports, concerts, political news. etc.
The first is the perfection of an
extremely low-priced, wide-range re
ceiving set that anyone can operate.
The second is the elimination of
static disturbances that produce buss
ing confusion in the receiver.
The third is the solution of the
mystery of "pockets." These are in
explicable spots, such as Saratoga.
N. Y., where messages, audible all
around, cannot be heard.
A fortune is waiting for the man
who helps solve these problems.
Every radiograph cxp^pl says that
eventually they will be solved.?Pop
