SIGNS OF OTHER PLANETS (by Morrison Colladay. International Digest. Published in Spain in February 1949 in Revista Meridiano, Meridian Magazine)...
"In 1924, when Mars was very close to the Earth, radio engineers were trying to connect to the red planet, to hear signals that could not be identified with anything terrestrial." The New York Herald Tribune said, on August 23, 1924 that these unexplained signals were received simultaneously in London, Vancouver and Newark (New Yersey). Engineers at the station WOR, Newark, insisted that they had heard and believed regular signals that were not due to static electricity. Several Newark appliance operators heard signals simultaneously for several hours,and said it appeared as if someone was playing a low key of a piano."
