WINTER RADIO AT 6XAD-6ZW By Major Lawrence Mott Once again the dot and dash sea- son is ahnost here, much to the de- light of thousands of operators all over the land.. I would state that all my transmitters have been lowered in wave length, the highest being on 196 meters. The one that I shall use the most is on 172 meters--exactly. There is no possible excuse for complaints of my interfering with concert reception, after 10:30 p. m., of course, unless any such complaints come from owners of wretchedly-bad receivers, that tune very broadly and that hear everything from amateur to arc stations. The Department of Navigation has not changed the transmitting rules of last season, to-wit: The only silent hours shall be between 8 and I0:30 p. m., and on Sunday morninl.s durinj churah services. Nothing is said of the afternoon hours, up to 8 p. m., at all l Yet last winter there was considerable uproar because, on a few occasions, and for reasons of special tests, I transmitted between 4 and 7 p. m., as was, and is, my right under the lawl. I would therefore beg, friends, that if I do have to come on the air at this time, that you do not grab the tele- phone and make remarks! I am not selfish, and I interfere as little as pos- sible with the pleasure of others! The nights of transmission at 6XAD-6ZW this season, will be Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, from 11 onward.
