Mr B. A. Watson Watt B.Sc. (under the auspices of the Royal Meteorological Society)
Mr Watson Watt is Superintendent of the Radio Research Station, Ditton Park, Langley, Bucks, where he is at present engaged on a very interesting series of tests of reception of all the London Station Talks. He was formerly in charge of the Branch Meteorological Office at the Royal Aircraft establishment and was associated with Captain C. J. P. Cave in the earliest directional observations on atmospherics ever made. He has had experience of hunting atmospherics in three Continents, and has found specimens that make the worst known in England seem comparatively mild.
