RADIO in America

The invention of radio communication goes way back almost 150 years and was preceded by many decades of discovery and experimental investigation of radio waves, engineering and technical developments related to their transmission and detection. These developments allowed Guglielmo Marconi to turn radio waves into a wireless communication system.

Before the discovery of electromagnetic waves and the development of radio communication there were many wireless telegraph systems proposed and tested. In April 1872 William Henry Ward applied for a patent for a wireless telegraph system where he theorized that convection currents in the atmosphere could carry signals like a telegraph wire. A few months after Ward received his patent, a West Virginia inventor, Mahlon Loomis, received his U.S. patent for a similar “wireless telegraph” in July 1872. The patented system claimed to use atmospheric electricity which would eliminate the overhead wire used by the existing telegraph systems.

Thomas Edison even had a patent in 1891 for a sip-to-shore wireless telegraph that used electrostatic induction. From 1860 to 1910 inventors worked to create and harness the power of radio waves, resulting in a Nobel Prize in Physics for Ferdinand Braun and Guglielmo Marconi. Each successive invention brought us closer to the radio we know today.
