  1. Magnetic Tick

    When a bar of iron is suddenly magnetized or demagnetized it emits a slight sound, called the Page sound, or the magnetic tick. This has been utilized in a telephone by Reiss. The telephone will receive sound, but is very weak. It consists of a bar surrounded with a coil of insulated wire. Variations in current produce sounds, which may be articulate if the currents are produced by a telephonic transmitter.
