IN NEW YORK
An International Meeting on Marine
Radio Aids to Navigation. held in Newtl
York and New London, Conn., was
opened on April 28. The meeting was
scheduled to continue approximately 2
weeks.
Delegates were invited from 57 mari-
time~ nations of the world. Registration
of delegates, opening ceremonies, and
presentation of papers took place in
New York the entire first week of the
meeting, at Roosevelt Hotel.
The second week of the meeting in-
cluded 3 days of actual demonstration
of shipboard equipment and 2 days of
final discussion and closing ceremonies.
New L~ondon, Conn., was selected for
shipboard demonstrations because of
suitable permanent radio ~aids to navi-
gation just outside the harbor and the
installation of special radar beacon and
radar-reflector buoy equipment mn the
vicinity. ]Headquarters for the demon-
strations and closing discussions was
the U. S. Coast Gularcd Academy.

THIRD DISTRICT AUXILIARY TPO
PATROL AL;BANY-NEW YORK
OUTTBOARD RACE
The safety patrol of the Albany-New
York Outboard Motorboat Race, to be
held on May 25j, is to be carried out
by the Coast Guard Auxiliary of the
Third Coast Guard District, under the
direction of regular service personnel.
Thiis event m~arkis the revival of a racing
event which has b~ee dormant for the
past six years, and a large attendance
is expected, particularly in the form
of small craft moored along the course.
It is expected that at least 10 Coast
Guard Auxiliary craft will be stationed
at strategic points along the 124-mzile
course. Flotilla 108 of the Lower Hud-
son Division wyill provide air coverage
with. several of their aircraft.

TChe Coast Guard's loran monitor sta-
tions at Angaur and Palau islands, and
at Subic Bay in the Philippine Islainds,
have been permanently disestablished.

M~ANYi COAST GUARD PLANES
EQUIPPED TO CALRRY AIR-
BORNJE LIFEBOATS
19any Coast Guard airplanes, used
for search and rescue purposes, are now
equipped to carry air-borne lifeboats for
dropping by parachute to survivors at
sea when se~a conditions make it im-
practicable for the plane to make an
open sea landing.
These lifeboats are the 18-foot Navy
type, ARE-8, carried by the PBYP-5A;
and the 27 foot Army type, A-1, carried
by the PB--1G (B-17). They differ in
that the AR-8 has 1 engine and accom-
modates 8 survivors with water a mll pro-
visions for approxrimrately 10 days'c, while
the Ac-1l boat has 2 engines and accomuo-
dates 12 survivors with water and pro-
visions for app~roximaltely 3 wee~ks.
Both boats carry a set of sails. The
AR-8, whlich is double ended, weighs
approximately 1,500~ pocundls, while the
A-1 weighs about 3,500 pounds. These
boats are dlrop~pedl suspended under a
cluster of parachutes which are con-

FOURTH DISTRICT AUXFILIARY
MAKES PLANS FOR FIRST
ANNUAL RENDEZVOUS

Plans for its first annual rendezvous,
to be hield at Cape May, N. J., May 2, 3,
and 4, have already been mzade by the
Cost Guard Auxriliary of the Fiourth
Coast Guard District, by a committee
appointed for the purpose some time
ago. The committee has announced
thiat it has arra~nged~ for a predicted log
race to Cape May; dinghly races, roll ing
and outboard; a baseball game; a buffet
supper and dance at the Cape May Coast
Guard Base; small sailing class boat
races; ain offshore sailing race; a
breeches buoy race; a capsize race; a
rescue by a helicopter, and many other
events.

A radar reflector hzas been installed,
for expe~rimlental purposes, on Miain
Chalnne~l Lighted B~ell Buoy 20A, in the
Narrowrs in the approach to New York
Harbor. '


NIEW TYPE OF ELECTRONIC FOG
SIGNAL IS GIVEN TESTS
AT CAPE HENRY
TIests of a new type of electronic fog
signl1 wer~e hleld in the vicinity of
Chesapeake Lightship, off Cape Haenry,
Va., on Mar1ch f21. This signal is being
developed for possible use on. an un1-
attendled light ship, and in the tests,
comparisons were made with a diaphone
signal and Tyfon air horn.
TChe new type of fog signal hlas been
deve.loped~ll by the Coast Guard and built
for it by the Radio Corporation of Amer-
ica. It consists essentially of 180 re-
producers mounted on a 5i-sided steel
structure and fed by 3 thyratron invert-
ers, each inverter being driven. by an
oscillator working on a different fre-
qluency. The three frequencies used are
700, 73,5, and 885 cycles per second.
One of the purposes of developing
this entirely new type of fog signal is
to obtain a device not requiring the
comparatively heavy equipment such as
air compressors and air tanks necessary
with ~most types of compressed air fog
signal.
Among the customary standards
which must be maet by the new signal
if it is to be adopted are: A distinctive
sound readily picked out by mariners,
and adaptability to coding. The latter
characteristic requires that the signal
reach maximum intensity quickly anzd
that the sound not trail off at the end
of the blasts. This is necessary where
sounding is done on an accurately timed
program.

CALIFORNIA AUXI~LIARY HOLDS
OVER-THE-BOTTOM MOTOR
CRUISER RACES

As a public demonstration of the!
practical aspects of its schooling in pi-
10ting and handling small boats, the
Coast Guard Auxiliary of the 12th
Naval District held an over-the-bottom
cruiser race off San Francisco on April
12. The event attracted considerable
attention and served to introduce both
the Auxiliary and its courtesy boat in-
sp.ection program to the yachting public.
Continuance of these boat handling
events is assured by the offering of a
number of awards and trophies pro-
vided by local individuals and organiza-
tions interested in the sport.

TPEND)EIR CLASS CUTTER ILEX
IS DECOMISSIONED AND
IS TO BE SOLD
The Tender Class Cutter Ilemo, orig-
inally a mzine-planter built for the
Wliar Department in World Wiar I, and
for many years used for lighthouse pur
poses on the coast of Maine and New
]Hampshire, has been decommissioned
and is to be sold. The Ilesx (WAGL-222)
was built in 1919, and was a vessel 172
feet in ]llngth and 32 feet beam. It was
one of six ships of ~this type transferred
from the War Department to the Liglit-
house Service in 1923. The Ilez ar-
rived at the Naval Shipyard, Charles-

NO AUTHORITY TO REQUIRE
INSTALLATION OF RADAR
ON MERCHANT SHIPS
That there is no authority under the
statutes administered by the Coast
Guard, on, vessel inspection and navi-
gation, whereby radar may be required
as navigational safety equipment on
merchant vessels, is the opinion of the
Chief Counsel at Coast Guard H-ead_
quarters.
This- is of interest, in the light of a
recent court decision, in which it was
held to be negligence where radar equip-
ment andl radar operators, both capable
.of -functioninzg, were not employed dur-
ing a period of low visibilityg. From
these opinions it may be concluded that
merchant vessels may be held at fault
where radar equipment is installed and
is in usable condition and its non-use
during periods of low \isibility con-
tributes to a collision; but that the in-
st~allation of such equipment is solely
within the discretion of the vessel op-
erator.
