USES OF RADIO UNDERGROUND
IT IS INTERESTING to spe ulate on
the possibilities of radio underground.
Since the Westinghouse company made its
recent successful attempt in New York to
pick up local broadcasting staticns from a
point in a tunnel 80 ft. below the Hudson
ing station at Kellogg, 20 miles away, was
heard, though unintelligibly. Similar
tests are reported to have been made at the
Junction shaft ofthe Calumet & Arizona,
in Bisbee, where on the 1,400 level what
seemed like wireless code was picked up.
These results, of course, are too meager
to indicate anything. But such tests are
interesting and can well be continued, if
only to teach us in general the possibilities
and limitations of radio.
What value will radio have in mine
work? Two uses suggest themselves; for
communication between the mine office or
other near-by surface points and the underground workings, and, secondly, for
commnuication between two points both of
which are underground. In the first case
it may prove an acceptable substitute for
the wired mine telephone. In the second
it may have advantages when accidents
occur and one part of the mine is cut off
from tbe rest. Several limitations and objections at once suggest themselves.
Should ground fall or a fire occur and a
group of men be isolated, as happened in
the Argonaut mine, radio would be of little
value unless the trapped miners could
transmit as well as receive. / nd werej
such transmission practicable, would the
necessary equipment be at hand for thej	
entombed miners to make use of? Hew
and where would such equipment be disposed of underground ordinarily? These
and other questions like them, indicating
