Frequency Modulation Demonstration at the Science Museum

The Radio Constructor, July, 1955.
Extras ▼


The new service of broadcasting by the BBC using the frequency-modulation system on very high frequency waves, which was officially inaugurated on the 2nd May 1955, has brought the benefits of high-quality interference-free listening to many in the south-eastern counties whose reception of the BBC sound programmes has been badly marred in recent years by interference from continental stations.

In order to explain the benefits of the new system to the listening public, the reasons for its introduction, and the circumstances in which it is of the greatest value, a special demonstration has been arranged at the Science Museum and will remain open for about three months. Comparative recordings will be demonstrated and the operation of a modern commercial FM broadcast receiver explained.

The Science Museum is open on weekdays from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Sundays from 2.30 to 6 pm Admission is free.
