A greater amount of effort should be applied toward bringing into use highly efficient, powerful, and reliable apparatus, in the hands of properly paid expert operators. It is quite clear that in order to study radio range variation and atmospherics, as thoro a record as possible of weather conditions around and between the stations should be obtainedl The amateur is probably a particularly appropriate individual for the study of ranges and atmospherics, because his financial situation is not dependent upon the nature of his reports. It may well be that the studying of radio ranges and atmospherics will be of considerable use to weather bureaus. Possibly we shall obtain considerable information regarding the upper atmosphere 'thru such study, and this, too, of a nature which cannot be ob tained by present methods.
