J.t.a. Opens Radio Printer Service from New York to Brazil

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency opened today a high-speed radio printer circuit from its New York headquarters to the J.T.A. bureau in Rio de Janeiro.

The New York-Rio radio printer circuit replaces manually received transmissions in Morse code by automatic transmission and reception. Louis P. Rocker, president of JTA, described the new circuit as the first step in the mechanization of the JTA service to Latin America. Present plans, he said, provide for extension of the printer service during 1955 to all other JTA bureaus in Latin America. These bureaus are now receiving the JTA service by Morse code.
