SEES RADIO ADVANCE STEADILY IN YEAR Capt. McLean Does Not Expect Any Sensational Developments During 1925. Phenomenal developments in radio < are not looked for during 1925 by! Capt. Ridley McLean, director of j naval communications. A prophetic j statement on radio issued by Capt. j McLean says: "The pe-riod of one year is too i short a time to bring intp general j use in communications even those! devices which have already passed | the experimental laboratory stage, i For that reason nothing phenomena! j must be expected during the new i year, but, rather, the perfection and j extension of use of improvements already known. "Recent accomplishments seem to , Justify the hope that during the com ing year long-distance communication by short wave and iow power will come into extensive commercial use; the replacement of certain low-power arc sets by higli-power tube sets for transcontinental and transoceanic trafUo, with consequent reduction of operating costs and interference; re placement of many spark sets by low-power tube sets, with consequent reduction of Interference; increased use of remote radio control of trans mitters in lieu of wire control; more extensive employment of automatic radio transmitters and receivers re placing manual operation and devel opment of the use of the radio com pass in forecasting electrical storms. “The commercial use of radio-pbo- I tography may be expected to increase. | and even the experimental develop-; ment of radio vision seems not too • optimistic. "Improvement In broadcasting serv- I Ice seems probable, this because of I the increased use of intercommuni cation between broadcasting stations and the probable installation of high power apparatus. These improve ments should insure higher-class pro grams and reduction of interference between stations, resulting from the reduction of the number of stations in the given localities."

PEPCO WILL HELP | RADIO FANS IRE Real Instances of Interfer ence Caused by Its Wires to Be Rectified. The Potomac Electric Power Co. in prepared to gro along- with users of radio sets in eliminating interference caused by power losses in its con duits and wires. The company, through H. C. Hoover, one of its engineers, declared today ! that complaints by radio users which ! can be legitimately laid at the door 1 of interference caused by leaky high j tension lines, Itad transformer con nections or other losses In transmis sion of high-power electric current on its lines will he handled ex peditiously and every consideration given to radio fans, who in most cases arc also users of electrclc cur ■ rent furnished by the company. Monts Care in Complaining. This does not mean, Mr. Hoover said, that the company is to be im mediately deluged with a mass of complaints which cannot rightfully be laid at the door of the elertric company, hut does mean that the company is glad to get reports of leaky power lines which can be re paired to its own benefit and at the same time will aid radio users in obtaining more perfect reception. The company wants to take care of | merited complaints, but wants assur -1 ance that the complaint is due to ; power losses before spending time in I jan exhaustive investigation of its i lines. One ca:-e in point may be cited as jan example of tne facility with which 1 the company answers complaints. A j user of power living in Eckington : suddenly found interNrence in his 1 radio set which u radio engineer pro j nounced to be due to a lea-,y power j line in the immediate neighSsprhood !of the receiver. lie wrote a Tetter ! t° the company, and the matter w5-t (cleared up Immediately. engineers | finding that the insulation had been j rubbed off a hlgh-tention line, caus ! ing a constant' short circuit j the limbs of a tree rubbing the high power wire. This was regarded as a legitimate | case of the type the power company wants to know about. Some inter ference may be temporary, due to unusually heavy snows, such as the last snow, or to heavy rains. This will take care of itself and will not need investigation, unless the case is an aggravated and continuous one, he added. RADIO QUERIES Radio Editor: Will you kindly inform me what broadcasting station using Central standard time signed off at 10:48 p.m. (Central time) on New Year night? The announcer gave his name as A. H. Depue and must have thought the public was more interested in his identity than in the station which he represented, as he failed to designate the station or its location. The con cluding number was an organ num ber, Handel's "Largo." He announced that new apparatus was dally being received for a larger station that would be ready in about a month.— R. G. G. O. \VMH, Cincinnati, and WCBD, Ziop City, scheduled organ recitals New Year night. Both are in the Central time zone.

Radio Editor: Supplementing the letter of Mr. Mil burn Petty in re "Interference," in your paper Monday, I have been won dering whether my set had character istics peculiar to Itself or to my oper ation of it, that caused it to extract all manner of what have seemed to rite- to be very rude, very Impolite and decidedly unseemly noises, en tirely foreign to the music or talks that emanate from the usual broad casting stations. As to code, well, it comes in any where on the dial almost, preferably right in the middle of some broad cast wave-length, and stays In for minutes at a time: viz., on Saturday night, January 3. KFK.V, 286 meters, was coming in in excellent volume at five minutes of 11. A very healthy variety of code managed to work its way right into the middle of that wave length at two or three minutes of the hour, and kept up a rapid fire "high-frequency" or high-pressure, at least, performance until a couple of seconds before tbe hour, stopped for those two seconds to get a good breath, and then started in for the I rest of the night, I believe, for it was at it continuously for 18 minutes, anti as I had enough by that time, I sub missively “yielded" to Senator Code. I did not see any billing of the inci dent on the programs, but It might have been an endurance test between KI’KX and the code station, but we have code a-plenty every night. WhY so much code accompaniment lo everything anyhow—do you know? rt would seem all the ships on all the waters were continuously tied up in a cobweb to require all the code v;< hear now-a-nights. Then Mr. Pat ty's "frying noise," too —he’s polite about describing it—it's, in fact, a noise like a small boy makes with a rattle whirled around by hand. Just why we should be treated to all these noises every night and most of the night, even after midnight, is what 1 inquire about. If it continues, radip as a medium of entertainment and advertisement will soon be a myth, it strikes me. I am not using a short wave receiver, so it is not amateur code I get. Kicking is especially distasteful, but broadcast reception is equally so with code and other foreign noise accompaniment. Apologies for the length of this missive. I hope it results in'recruit ing a substantial number of com plaints before the radio supervisor.— W. W. MASSEY'. Metal Buildings Hurt Loops. Directional loops are hampered in reception by metal structures or jiarts of buildings. The magnetic properties of nearby metal cause a "shadow” to fall across the loop and diminish Its receiving qualities.

If per fectly matched or uniform tubes are used separate rheostat controls would not be necessary, but since there is usually a slight difference in tubes, it is best to use separate rheostats ao that the tubes can be controlled and adjusted to their best points.

No. 7 and No. 8 are two 4*2-volt C batteries connected together in series to form a 9-volt C battery, the grid bias required for this amplifier unit. No. 9 is the input transformer and No. 12 is the output transformer. These are the special transformers made especially for this type of cir cuit. The average price of a pair of such transformers is about $lO to sl3 list. Until recently transformers of this type were to be found only in the power amplifier units manufactured 1 by a, prominent electrical company, but now several good instruments are manufactured by various radio transformer manufacturers.

No. 13 is the negative A battery terminal post. No. 14 is the positive A battery terminal post. No. 15 is the positive B batter} terminal post. You will notice that there is n'» connection between the negative side of the B battery and the rest of the circuit, and that no terminal is provided, for a negative B batterv connection is in the panel layout which will be given later in this se ries. Such a terminal or connection is not necessary, as that connection will automatically take care of itself if the same block of B batteries is used for both receiver and amplifier unit because the negative terminal of the B battery will already be con nected with the filament circuit of the receiver. No. 16 is the binding post panel. Nos. 17 and 18 are the brass angle brackets for mounting the binding post panel on the baseboard, and No. 19 is the wood baseboard.
