EIGHT THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 1939. NEW YORK, Aug. 9 (£>).—Range of. NBC's television transmitter atop the Empire State building is going: farther into the distance. The latest report tells of reception on. CapeCod, 1S5 air miles from New York. This compares with a previous distance report of 130 miles at Schenectady, N. Y. The "record" was set by Dean R. Barker, amateur experimenter, who advised NBC that he had picked up the signals regularly and satsfac- torily on a 21-tube- home-made set using a five-inch picture tube, at West FaJmouth, Mass. The report gives another indication that the possible range of the ultrashort waves carrying television is considerably greater than 40 to 50 miles, or the theoretical "line of sight." Another New York broadcaster has applied lor an experimental television license. It is WOR, key Station of the MBS chain. The application is the third on file from this area, which if all are allowed will nil the five available channels for New York. NBC already is operating and CBS is making ready to begin some time in the fall.
