History of radio

Radio owes its development to two other inventions, the telegraph and the telephone, all three technologies are closely related. Radio technology began as "wireless telegraphy.

-Ifra Zia

  • During the 1860s, Scottish physicist, James Clerk Maxwell predicted the existence of radio waves.
  • in 1886, German physicist, Heinrich Rudolph Hertz demonstrated that rapid variations of electric current could be projected into space in the form of radio waves.
  • In 1866, Mahlon Loomis, an American dentist, successfully demonstrated "wireless telegraphy.
  • Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian inventor, proved the feasibility of radio communication.
  • He sent and received his first radio signal in Italy in 1895. By 1899 he flashed the first wireless signal across the English Channel.
  •  This was the first successful transatlantic radiotelegraph message in 1902.
