The History of Radio

and Amateur Radio

In my opinion, the the history of Radio (and Amateur Radio in particular) makes fascinating reading.

I have provided these links to give readers a taste of our history and the impact it has had on the lives of
everybody - whether they are licensed amateurs or not. You've heard the names of some of these inventors:
Hertz, Tesla, Marconi, DeForest, Armstrong and Hiram Percy Maxim - to name but a few.

Find out who they really were and the contributions they made which changed our world 100+ years ago.
