The picture shows the exterior view of the Pennsylvania State College Radio Station.
The tower is 121 feet high and insulated from the ground. The aerial is a six wire phosphor bronze of the straight-away type.
The interior of the station is very conveniently arranged and includes a 2 Kw. Clapp-Eastham type “E” transformer and a rotary gap with the other usual transmitting apparatus. All transmitting except in times of QRM is done on 500 meters.
The receiving set consists of an audion detector, Stromberg-Carlson phones and a Clapp-Eastham type variometer tuner. A new receiving set is now under construction and when completed will be thoroughly up—to-date and will include both oscillating and plain circuits with a range in wave length from 200 to 15,000 meters. The “nite” range of the station is 800 miles and many times can work a greater distance.
The following schedule has been adopted for the ensuing college year. The periods for “listening in” will be as follows: All days except Friday, 7:30-7:45; 8:30-8:45; 9:45-10:15. Friday, 9:45 to 10:15 only. Athletic results, etc, will be sent at 9:00 0’clock on the days of the contests.
Anyone hearing us at a considerable distance will please notify: M. R. Strausberger, 102 Foster Ave., State College, Pa.
