This paper discusses tabulated data of static recorded during the hurricane seasons of 1938 and 1939. It shows that static arriving at three recording stations totalized over long periods of time seems to come from certain well-defined points on the compass and indicates that the directional distribution of static, for the summer months at least, may be associated with areas very active in producing atmospherics. The paper discusses records obtained on the tropical disturbance of August, 1939, which, although mild in intensity, was of considerable interest since its center passed only 100 miles from the recording station at Gainesville, Florida. The results indicate that (a) only certain portions of the storm may be regarded as important sources of static, (b) the relative position of each static-producing area remains fairly well fixed with respect to the storm center, and (c) as far as can be determined, no static emanates from the eye of the storm.
