Measuring relative humidity by radio. Washington, D.C. June 9. The hair element for measuring relative humidity in radio weather sounding balloons has proved innacurate because of very slow response at the cold temperatures encountered in the upper atmosphere. F.W. Dunmore, Radio Engineer of National Bureau of Standards, has just developed a new device for the U.S.Navy which will overcome this effect and at the same time will not be affected in response by temperature. He is shown in the photograph observing a graph on the recorder being produced by radio signals from an ascending balloon carrying the new device. This is the first record obtained with this new developement and shows a repidity of response much greater than the hair hygrometers Hitherto used. 6/9/37
