Radio history

Radio has been around for a long time. Around the middle of the nineteenth century - we are in the twenty-first now - the first successful wireless message was sent and received. But it wasn't until the early 1900's when the first real transmission was made. From then on there was no stopping it but for more on radio history the following sites offer complete information.

If you are interested in the history of radio, whether it is news radio, amateur radio, commercial radio, music radio, broadcast radio or you are an aficionado of antique radios there are millions of like-minded people all over the world.
