Wireless is a thrilling pastime.
Fancy a boy sitting in his room at home with his fingers on a telegraph key and a telephone receiver to his ear listening-in to the news of the world as it is flashed out from the great coast stations or by ships far out at sea! It's a great experience.
Yet thousands of boys are doing this wonderful thing every day and night of the year, and you, my young friend, can do it as easily as they, for any boy can own a real wireless station, if he really wants to.
If you have sharp eyes, you will see everywhere you go webs of wire spun from the housetops and barngables, or spanning backyards, and often frontyards, too. These wires are not clothes lines: no, indeed! They have a far higher and, I should say, as useful a purpose as clothes lines, for they are wireless wires.
These wires are called aerials by wireless operators. The word aerial may sound a little hard at first, and there are some other words used in wireless that are hard for the outsider, but they get to be very common words to the boy who puts up his own station, for there is no lesson so easily learned as the one taught by the thing itself, and no school like that of doing things yourself. Some of these aerials have a stretch of only twenty to thirty feet of wire, while others have upwards of 1,000 feet, the amount depending on the place, the pocket-book and the boy.
But you don't need to spend a lot of money to put up a good wireless station, for I have many boy friends who made all the apparatus they use, except the telephone receiver, and their stations work as well as those of some others I know who bought their outfits ready for use.
