The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, March 22,1934 Short NEW SHORT WAVE SETS WILL BRING IN EUROPE, ASIA Local Radio Man Foresees Untold Improvement In New Field .Radio Now Brings WbrJd Broadcasts to Kosssuth Not many years ago the fortunate Algona family was greatly thrilled at tl»e reception of KFT, Los Angeles, California. How many nights of listening far beyond the regular bed time were «3>ent in listening for these magic •words, only to find it impossible to convince the skeptic that they .had been really heard. Today's radio scoffs at such reception, according to John Shirley, local radio dealer and enthusiast. RF1 can now be taken as a matter of course, «nd It 10 not now uncommon for casual friends to greet each other with: "I heard Rome this morning." "Did you? On what wave length?"—-without skep- tkfem, but mere curiosity. Mr. Shirley anticipates more for the future. He continues. Spain In 1-20 Second Probably the first foreign stations to be tuned in on one of the new all-wav* radios wail be Madrid, Spain. Spanish music or speech will respond to a dial- Ing of 30.4 meters where there •will be the characteristic "foreign" sound which resembles wave motion. After an interval dependent upon the lengtb of the program the listener will be thrilled for the first time by "Ay-ali- «oo, Madrid, Kspanol" followed by an announcement in perfect English, "This te broadcasting station EAQ, Madrid. Spain." What greater thrill could there be than hearing these words and realizing they are circling a quarter of the globe and reaching the listener in less than one-twentieth of a second? This station is then logged and can be tuned in almost any afternoon. Berlin, Oermany. will quite possibly be the second triumph. There is often news given in German with many references to Herr Hitler—sometimes trans, lated into English for American listeners. The program ends and after a moment of suspense the listener hears the German Identification—a group of chime notes, repeated for two or three minutes. This da followed by announcement in German and then in English. With a strong German accent: "Hello, Asia! Hello, America! These are German Short 'Wave Stations IXJA and DJB broadcasting.

There are more operas, more symphonies, more news flashes, little so-called popular music, and no advertising. 1ORO. Rome, Italy, possesses a fascination for the average short-wave listener. Here all of the announcements are given in Italian, though the veteran listener noon learns to identify it because of its announcer — a woman. Vatican City broadcasts, while short. are also Interesting, and many of them are given in English. Moscow, 17. S. 8. R.. sends its special program to America, on Monday. On this day English is spoken. The remainder of the week: is devoted to Russia. with a very occasional announcement in English.

VK2ME, Sydney, and VK3ME, Melbourne, which is the same time on Wednesday morning, speak KngLUh, of course, and send their greetings to American listeners. VK2ME signs off the air with the call of the Kookaburra bird — which probably Rives the greatest thrill in radio reception. Prom Australia thei programs come> half-way around the world — perhaps coming around from both directions. 'What more could be asked for distance ? Big Field In Snort VY'*ve Certainly a great part of the future of radio rests in the development of short-wave transmission and reception. There haa long been the need, but only recently has there been a. means of satisfying it. The whole "standard broadcast" band from 2OO to 650 meters contains only 96 clear channels of broadcastng-. Several hundred stations are now operating on these 86 bands, and as a result stations are crowded and there is much interference. By way of contrast the band from 10 meters to 2O metei.5 contains 1500 clear channels, very few of which are now being used- The future stations without doubt will be placed somewhere in these short-wave bands, where there is little crowding and less interference. This means, however. tUat in tf»e dial space where one station comes in on regular radios there is a possibility of being fifteen on short wave. This has held back commercial development, though now special diais have made tuning much less of a problem One may be sure that short-wave broadcasting is here to stay. The foremost manufacturers have taken it up and are developing it greatly, practically all radio receiving set. manufac- turra are now showing their foresight in offering the public all-wave radios within the price range which the average citizen ran reach. What is left to be done in radio? Tone, selectivity, sensitivity, and. fading have been conquered. Now experimentation is being done on private line <feeam transmission) conversations; transmission of power, radio control ot trains. ° J Ttfr r '^ s . and automobiles; television; surgery, and numerous other fields.
