Excerpt from Manual of Wireless Telegraphy and Telephony

The tremendous strides in wireless during the past ten years have necessitated a revision of this Manual. In the matter of improved apparatus the alternating current transformer has largely taken the place of the induction coil and the auto receptor has all but superseded the coherer receptor in practical installations, with the result that both the working and the efficiency of stations have been greatly improved.

Due to these and other advances it has been found expedient to segregate the chapter on The Apparatus of a Commercial Station and treat the transmitting and the receiving instruments separately. Aerials is a subject to which much new text has been added since the flat-tops or T aerial has come into general use together with better methods of suspension than those treated of in the previous editions of this Manual. Furthermore, considerable useful data have been appended under the caption of Suggestions to Operators relating to the management of stations.
