THE AtyTOONA MIRROR-MONDAY. NOVEMBER 11, 1929 TRY TO PUT CURB > ON INTERFERENCE By KOHKllT MACK, Staff Correspondent. (Jopyrlght, 1929, by Consolidated Press Association.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 11— Stringent measures to curb interference with broadcast reception are under consideration by tMa federal rudio commission. It is learned on high authority that the commission shortly will act upon a proposal that the permissible deviation of "wobble" of stations from their assigned frequencies be cut in half. "Wobbling" causes both heterodyne whistles and .-oss-talk, depending upon the distance from the off side station the listener happens to be. The present allowable deviation Is 500 cycles. That, is, a station may run off-courses' on either side of its assigned frequency to this extent. The proposal is to reduce this tolerance to 250 cycles each way, or a maximum swing of just one-half kilocycle, as against the present full kilocycle. And, as a second step, the commission's engineering division plans to recommend that all broadcasting sta- 'tions fl Irrespective of sizefl be required to install automatic cry I controls, which actually "police" the frequency of the transmitter to avoid off-fre- 'quency operation. Practically all of larger stations, of their owr have Installed automatic controls, but they i ro expensive, and many of the radio "tots" have been unable to" buy them. ' Manually operated transmitters, or those whose frequencies are controlled by hand, would be banned, if the engineering division has Its way. Any station not employing an automatic control should bo removed from the air, according to their way of thinking. Individual commissioners, however believe It would bo Indiscreet as wel as unnecessary to ban manually con trolled, stations. It is pointed out tha the reduction In the allowabli "wobble" practically would force sta tiong to install the automatic ap paratus. The "wobble" restriction will be part of the commission's campaign ti stamp out avoidable Interference Heterodyning and cross-talk have been the most bothersome of the man made Interferences,' and the commls sion already has made several sweep ing changes in station assignments sc that adequate separation between sta tipns might be effected as a methoc of doing away with excessive cross talk. The commission has just adbptei a new general order relating to th installation of apparatus to contro frequency of transmitters, with view of reducing interference betwee stations. This 'la seen as the forerun ner of the "wobble" reduction order.
