The company has applied for a permit to set up a developmental station in New York City. This set would receive only on the frequency of, the proposed "time" station, but anyone carrying the fixed-frequency receiving set or having office and home sets in the New York area will be able to have the correct time. The station will use a wire recorder synchronized with Arlington time signals.
It is the plan of the company to establish such service in all metropolitan communities. The proposed station will give a weather report at intervals and news reports that would not interrupt the continuous time announcements, such as: "The time is 5 :30 and one-half, raining."
The portable unit or the desk set will sell for an estimated $5 and a home set for $10.
