Set» More Sensitive,
and More Disturbance
As sets become more sensitive, so
that they will reach out further and
bring In stations with greater quality,
It follows that smaller electrical dis
turbances have more opportunity to
become annoyances. It Isn’t a mutter
of tuning out local Interference, split
ting the stations or other “ tine” ad
justments ; these all can be attended
to through the sharp and effective ad
justments built Into the set. What
muy prove a source of annoyance,
though, Is some Interference that Is
constant and for all the wave band.
With the growing popularity of bat
tery chargers, battery eliminators and
the other paraphernalia designed to
make reception better, the increasing
difficulty Is that of keeping these
accessories from setting up local dis
turbances that Interfere with the
set’s operation. There Is no diffi
culty whatsoever where sets are built
with all these accessories combined
with them, for under such conditions
great care has been exercised to avoid
any Interference which might be set
up through sparking or the straying
of eddy currents.
Rut the operator who simply adds a
lot of equipment to a sensitive set may
not be thinking In terms of Inter
ference. Particularly, If he Is aiming
for neatness he Is apt to place all
these devices too close to each other
and to the tuning units of the set
Itself. The matter of Interference
from such onuses Is so uncertain It Is
true that the radU> owner who ar
ranged the various devices most care
lessly might obtain the best results.
It is Important to remember, how
ever, that nil transformers (and bat
tery eliminators and chnrgers are bas
ically transformers, regardless of
whether or not they are rectifiers, too)
create eddy currents. There Is al
ways a certain amount of Induction
straying around, and In the case of
sensitive receivers these can cause
trouble. A careful layout of the set
and accessories always pays.

There are. of course, many technical
considerations, hut the general prin
ciple of the thing Is relatively almple.
It «11 gies back to what might be
termed the depth of current traveling
a wire at radio frequency.
Take «Vcycle alternating current
(such as Is used for house lighting
circuits) and It Is found that this cur
rent penetrates the wires It travels,
going straight to the very core. This

Take radio frequenclea. however,
where the alternation# run Into the
hundreds of thousands per second and
which never are below 10,000 cycles,
and It Is obvious that the energy has
little opportunity, If any at all, to dig
Into the conductor. It simply travels
the surface of the conductor, and
therefore does not interfere with the
lower rated alternations which are well
distributed throughout the entire body
of the conductor.
Possibly it !■ stating the matter
more exactly to say that the alterna
tions of low rate do not Interfere with
the alternations of high rate traveling
the surface of the conductor. This
explains why the house current, or
power line, can be friendly to n com
paratively weak series of radio alter
nations traveling ulong the surface.
Even audio frequencies, which are
anything lower than 10,000 cycles per
second, are of sufficiently high alter

of a wire rather than to penetrate
through to the Inside.
