    Mechanisms responsible for cross-talk in a thin-gap multiwire chamber with pad readout are discussed. Using a simple capacitive coupling model, the cross-talk is calculated as a function of chamber geometry, capacitances and charge integration time. Calculation results are compared and found to be in reasonable agreement with measurements. Suggestions are given for reducing cross-talk in such a chamber.
