BETTER SERVICE PLANNED NEW TRANSMITTERS ARRIVE Parliamentary Reporter WELLINGTON, this day. An important advance in shortwave broadcasting to the New Zealand forces in the Pacific will be made possible when transmitters of considerably higher power than those now in use are installed. The Postmaster-General, Mr. Jones, stated to-day that two 71 kilowatt short-wave transmitters ordered some time ago for the purpose of transmitting stations were now being delivered. As the war situation had materially changed, and the purpose for which they' were ordered no longer existed, they had, therefore been made available to the National Broadcasting Service, and would be installed at the Titahi Bay station for use in providing the broadcasting service to New Zealand forces in the Pacific and the peoples of New Zealand dependencies in the Pacific. They had been receiving news bulletins between 9 and 9.30 p.m. daily, but it was intended to .provide a complete evening programme, when the more.'powerful transmitters could be aerial system had to be erected at Titahi Bay and, it was probable that several months must elapse before the improved service could be inaugurated.
