This paper describes the present significance of international broadcasting; its growth and present status in both the Eastern and Western hemispheres; factors governing service to Columbia's new Latin American international network consisting of sixty-four stations located in eighteen different countries; the many problems attendant upon successful relaying of programs to these many points; facilities for this service, including new studios, frequency-modulation program-relay circuits, and two complete 50-kilowatt transmitting plants located at Brentwood, Long Island, New York; features of design and operating performance characteristics of the transmitting apparatus, including thirteen directive antenna arrays and their associated transmission lines. A typical international radio relay receiving-station installation and the importance of properly engineering such facilities, will also be briefly discussed.
