'Radio Pest' Has
Amateurs Have Job on Hand
to Eliminate Butting

With the interlrrrnce of Katie dur

have difficult enough time catching
in concern, news and entertain

the "pest" According to radio
amateurr, he Is one who persists in
interrupting broadcaiting programs
by flashing signals.
The elimination of the "radio
pt is largely up to the fans them'
selves, becaute the United Statei
radio inspector. Mr. Schmitt. h
practically no aid in policing the 12
late under hie. jurisdiction. It i
therefore up to the fans themielvei
to search out the peiti. warn them
and if the interference continue, to
not'fy Mr. Schmitt.
Many "pen" do not realize that
they are spoilsports and that they
are robbing hundreds of their neigh
bore of the plrature of hearing high
ly skilled artiMs in musical (elections.
In the fact that there are only two
broadcasting stations in Omaha at
the present time, there is not much
interference by signals until the high,
powered stations elsewhere start
New Invention Does
Away With Antennae
Chicago. May 19. A new type of
radio receiving device without an
tenna, electrical power line connec
tion, or any assisting apparatus ex
cept several yards of wire tacked on
the back of the cabinet which houses
the set. was announced today by
B. F. Miessner, radio engineer.
Adequate reception of signals is
accomplished by a sttper-amplifier
which, according to Mr. Miessner,
magnifies the signal about fifty times
more than the ordinary three tube
amplifier, rendering it fully as aud
ible as signals received with a real
antennae. The receiving set is sim
plified, .having only a button to turn
on the power, generated in small
storage batteries also housed in the
cabinet, and a dial on which the wave
lengths are marked. After adjust
ing the one dial to the wave length
on which the operator wishes to re
ceive, no other adjustments are nec
essary. In a demonstration today, signals
from Kyw broadcasting station. Chi
cago, were plainly received with the
cabinet in an inside office of a large
. "It would work just as well if the
cabinet were buried SO feet under
ground" Mr. Miessner said.
