New Broadcasting System Eliminates Static, Noises NEW YORK, Jan. 27.--Columbia University has announced the invention o£ a radically new radio broadcasting system which completely eliminates static and other extraneous noises. - It involves new-methods o£ transmission and requires specially designed receiving sets with a much shorter wave range--from 10 meters down to possibly one meter. Broadcasts will start in the spring over W2XMN, an experimental station operated by Major Edwin K. Armstrong, professor of electrical engineering at Columbia and inventor of the new system. General Electric Company already is making receiving sets required for the new system, the university announced, and when they are put into production in large quantities they will cost not much more than the types in current use. The new sots will be able to receive both the new and old types of broadcasts, al- thought it would be impossible to receive the new programs on the short wave bands of current sets. The new method is known technically as frequency modulation. Tne one now in use is called the amplitude modulating system. To the industry, it represents as radical a departure as the substitution of alternating for direct current electricity. To the layman, it means the elimination of all static, tube noises or other interference, regardless of weather conditions. The university said that the new set would be as great an improvement over the average current scl as the current one is over 1920 mode radioes. . The new system also will open a vast new range of wave lengths possibly enough for 1,500 broadcast- Ing stations. "It will greatly relieve the danger o£ the air waves being monopolized, which has given so much worry to Congress," the announcement said. The experimental station presently Is assigned to broadcast in the vicinity of 40 megacycles (40,000,000 cycles), corresponding to a wave length of 7.5 meters. Major Armstrong is known in the Industry as the inventor of the sup- crhetrodyne receiver and other important devices.
