  • ship radios

    Edison took out a patent on a system of radio communication between ships, which he then sold to Guglielmo Marconi.
  • Heinrich Rudolf Hertz

    validated Maxwell's theory through experiment. He demonstrated that radio radiation had all the properties of waves and discovered that the electromagnetic
  • Nikola Tesla

    "On Light and other High Frequency Phenomena" before the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia and the National Electric Light Association St Louis. Tesla's primary interest in radio waves was as a power distribution system although he saw communication as a side aspect.
  • British physicist Sir Oliver Lodge

    demonstrated morse code signaling using radio waves using a "coherer".
  • death...

    Heinrich Rudolf Hertz died.
  • The First Radio Is Used

    by marconi in 1895 the first use of a radio was clamied by marconi some people say he wasnt the first one but just the first to claim it now this was not music it was probally dots and taps but radio doesnt mean music it means sending a signal wireless with out a line
  • england

    Marconi established the radio station on the Isle of Wight, England.
  • Bose

    Bose announced his invention of the "iron-mercury-iron coherer with telephone detector" that was shown in presentation in england
  • Audion Tube

    an audion tube is a amplifyer that just amp's how far thesignal goes made by Lee De Forest but canadian inventor Reginald Fessenden supposly came up with the idea but didnt seem to make it in the history books for it.

  • FM Start

    patented by inventor Edwin H. Armstrong. FM uses frequency modulation of the radio wave to reduce static and interference from from eletric equipmeant and the atmosphere.
  • 1973

    as a result of experiments, first described the theoretical basis of the propagation of electromagnetic waves in his paper to the Royal Society A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field by maxwell.
