Buzz! Crackle! Snap!
A new radio pest is in our midst.a
Of all types of interference that the
wireless operator runs up against, the
loud sputtering from an unknown
source, the kind that he can't get rid
of by akny manipulation of the appa-
ratus or any amount of tuning, is the
bane of his existence. And this kind
of thing is exactly what has been both-
ering the operators on University sets
for the past 10 days or more.
Is Near Campus
Somewhere near the campus, or on
it, is the cause of the disturbance and
at almost any hour during the day or
night a loud buzzing, sometimes pro-
longed and continuous, sometimes in-
ternfittent and resembling somewhat
the letters of the continental code,
rends the ether and makes life miser-
able for the man who is "sitting in"
with the receivers over his head try-
ing to read some distant station.
The racket sounds like a little boy
with a spark coil, a little boy who
doesn't know the code and doesn't
realize that his key-punching is an-
noying everyone in his vicinity. Such
little boys are generally innocent but
they manage to make themselves most
Not In Building
Or the noise might emanate from
experiments being conducted on elec-
trical apparatus anywhere about the
campus. Spark coils and high tension
circuits of one kind and another are
in great abundance in our engineering
and physics-buildings and might cause
the trouble. But various investiga-
tions have failed to locate any appa-
ratus which has been working at the
same time the disturbance was noticed.
The signal corps set is frequently
put out of the running by this newly-
developed interference and amateurs
over town complain violently of the
untunable noise. But apparently it
can't be helped. University professors
and their assistants swear to their
guiltlessness and no little boys with
back-yard antennas and spark coils
can be found nearby.
So the campus radio pest continues
to hover over us 'while campus oper-
ators take off their 'phones and sit
back in unavailing disgust.
