Mayme Kelso?Frank C&mpecu Special Musical Interpretation Aviators Can Now Talk To People on the Ground Twenty-five Miles Away After a dozen or more public dem onstrations of the reliability of the . radio-phone in the issuing of orders from & person on the ground to an aviator in flight, its use. combined with a ground line, in a two way con versation. for obtaining Increased dis tance, is today being discussed as its next development. A test of the two-way conversation was conducted yesterday afternoon with entire success. Major General Kenly, director of military aeronau tics, held a conversation with Lieuten ant I.uoas, an army aviator stationed at Boiling Kleld. who was flying over the southern outskirts of the city dur ing the experiment. Sat at Hla Dealt. The isdio system was installed at BtJIling Field, and General Kenly con ducted the conversation while seated at his desk in the War Department, fcy means of a wire connection be tween his plione and the apparatus at the lield. This system was installed under the direction of the inventor of the phone. Col. Clarence C. Culver, the work being done by members of the radio branch of the air service. It is considered that with the use of the ground-line syste.n it will soon be possible for orders to be transmit ted from tlie War Department in this city to an aviator in full flight over San Francisco. 10<? Mile* Present Record. The re< 6rd radio phone communica tion distance was established on De cember t.'4, \\ hen messages were transmitted for a distance of 100 miles between the Navy Department and a hydroplane from the Anacostia naval aviation base. liven in the worst weather condi tions, when the "static" was operat ing against the radio phone to the fullest extent, it has been found pos sible to send messages over a dis tance of twenty-five miles. Thus, with a twenty-five-mile radius from the ground phone at the minimum, an aeroplane anywhere within a circle fifty miles across with the ground phone as a center, can be controlled from any point to which the ground line may be extended from this central point.
