Wireless Telephone Receiving Sets


    A NUMBER of patterns of complete wireless telephone receiving sets are being introduced to meet the requirements of the popular broadcasting services which will shortly be put in operation. It is regrettable that there has been a tendency, in striving after simplicity and cheapness, to cut the apparatus down to rather fine limits, resulting in the elimination of adjustments and features which are most desirable for really satisfactory working. Indeed many of the sets being advertised are little better than toys. It is true that reception of a sort is quite possible with elementary crystal sets, but the unskilled user will undoubtedly be better served by the slightly more expensive valve apparatus which is now being made in simple and convenient forms.
