FRAME AERIAL FOR LONG AND MEDIUM WAVE, 1930's

Many houses in built up areas did not have gardens large enough to acommodate an aerial, (flats had no gardens) so an aerial for a receiver was a problem. The frame aerial provided some help, mounted on the top of the set, it could provide some signal strength, but not as good as an outdoor aerial.

Your comments:

  • A quite large indoor aerial that could sit on top of the wireless. This one had a changeover switch that varied the length of wire in the circuit. Probably to help the tuning. The one I have needs the wiring tidied up.
