Radio News (01:08) February 1920

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Among the investigations at the Bureau of Standards was a study of the relative advantages and applications of the coil aerial and the ordinary antenna as a radiator and receiver of radio waves. It was found that surprising distances of communication could be attained by the coil aerial. By the use of exceedingly sensitive amplifiers as detecting devices with an aerial consisting merely of a few turns of wire located inside an ordinary room, signals transmitted from Germany were received in Washington."
This issue of Radio Amateur News is from February 1920. The cover story is “The Radio Compass.” Additional radio articles include the Armstrong super-autodyne amplifier, banked winding of coils, receiving undamped signals, and a new type of variable condenser.
