A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Radio Collection - The telegraph was an astounding breakthrough invented by Samuel Morse in 1835. But the ultimate event was communicating without wires! This honor is accorded to Marconi (1874-1937) who received the Nobel Prize in physics for his work. Marconi was born in Bologna, Italy, where he performed experiments using (electromagnetic) radio waves generated by electric sparks in the attic of his home. By assembling a Hertz-Righi spark transmitter and a Branly-Lodge coherer receiver he was able to actually ring a bell a few yards away. In 1895 his antenna improvements were such that he could transmit/receive at over a mile. The family moved to London where a patent was acquired in 1896, and the Wireless Telegraph and Signal company was formed. Distances and techniques were improved, and on December 12, 1901, the famous letter “S” was, supposedly, transmitted from Cornwall, England to Newfoundland. The years since have seen quantum leaps from telegraphy, to voice transmission, to television, with distances reaching across the solar system. Radio!
