TRANS-PACIFIC TESTS.
Communications received by the Trans-
pacific Test Committee in Melbourne state
that up to May 3 two Sydney amateurs
had successfully received low powered,
short wave wireless messages from amateur
experimenters in the United States. Since
the beginning of the test signals have been
received nightly by Melbourne experi-
menters, but owing to interference caused
by the abnormally strong static, the sig-
nals were unintelligible. With the change
in the weather, however, receiving con-
ditions have greatly improved, and on
Monday night Mr. H. K. Love and Mr. J.
Fitchett were each successful in reading
code words thought to be sent by Ameri-
can amateurs. Owing to the non arrival of
the list of code words to be used by the
Americans, it cannot be definitely ascer-
tained whether or not the signals were
from America, but as they were received
on the wave length which was to have
been used by the American stations, and
at a time arranged for an American trans-
mission, there is little doubt that when the
list of code words is received it will con-
firm the belief that the signals were from
America.
Commencing tonight, a new schedule of
transmitting times will be adhered to, and,
as there are no transmissions from America
during the early part of the evening, there
will be no objection to the use of amateur
transmitters in Melbourne until half-past
nine. After this time, however, all trans-
mitters should be closed down to prevent
interference with the American signals.
The tests will be concluded on May 17.
