Who Invented Radio?

In Physics, Resonance is defined as the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than others. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as Resonant Frequencies. At these frequencies, even small periodic driving forces can produce large amplitude oscillations because the system stores energy.

With his newly created coils, Tesla soon discovered that he could transmit and receive powerful radio signals when they were tuned to resonate at the same frequency. When a coil is tuned to a particular frequency, it literally magnifies the incoming signal through resonant action. By early 1895, Nikola Tesla was ready to transmit a signal 50 miles to WestPoint, New York…. But in the same year, disaster struck. A building fire consumed Tesla’s lab, destroying his work. The timing could not have been worse. In England, a young Italian experimenter named Guglielmo Marconi had been working on building a device for wireless telegraphy. The young Marconi had taken out the first wireless telegraphy patent in England in 1896. His device had only a two-circuit system, which some said could not transmit “across a pond.” Later, Marconi set up long-distance demonstrations, using a Tesla Oscillator to transmit the signals across the English Channel.

Tesla filed his own basic Radio patent applications in1897. They were granted in 1900. Marconi’s first patent application in America, filed on November 10, 1900 was rejected. Marconi’s revised application for the following three years were repeatedly rejected because of the priority of Tesla and other Inventors ……………..

With Tesla already granted patent in America and Marconi rejected, who will be recognised worldwide for this all-important discovery?  Watch this space…………………..
