LABORATORY TEAM CHECKS STRATOVISION FLIGHT

E&MP127.005

Stratovision

May 27, 1946

Baltimore, May 27 - Engineer G.W. Nagel rotates antenna atop Stratovision laboratory here to improve reception during flight tests of this sensational new system of airborne television and FM radio transmission under development by Westinghouse and The Glenn L. Martin Company. Listening and checking results is Engineer Kent M. Mack.

Stratovision - already proven in flight tests - opens the way for nationwide television and FM at reasonable cost by employing airplanes cruising constantly six miles in the air to overcome line-of-sight reception limitations characteristic of these services.
