Series - Radio

David Edward Hughes developed the world's first radio transmitter and receiver in 1879.  However, his invention was originally beleived by some to transmit and receive via induction.  Many others studied James Maxwell's theory of elctromagnetism to develop method and devices for wireless communication over radio waves.  Click on the links below to view some patents of note regarding the development of the Radio.
