    Karl Ferdinand Braun shared the 1909 Nobel Prize in Physics with Marconi "for their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy".

    Braun is remembered today for... 1) forward bias; 2)the PHASED ARRAY , and today we associate his name with:

    Both men were obviously smart men. One might say Tesla was the genius, but he was not a businessman. Others made money from the patents he sold and the applications that developed from his inventiveness
    and genius. Marconi focused on the inventive application of a composite of scientific ideas from others. He was a businessman and received the rewards and the credit for this application of science called "wireless."
    But we must remember transformers, motors, and power distribution when we think of Tesla. These are the practical things. His other ideas bordered the mysterious but sparked a generation of ingenuity.

    Braun patented (October 4, 1898) the tuned circuit. The coupling between the spark-gap oscillator and the antenna, yielded lower damping, a narrower spectral width of the radiated pulses and higher power ef´Čüciency (from "Ferdinand Braun - A Pioneer in Wireless Technology and Electronics")

    Oh, come on old men, what is this silly competion about who was smarter or clever of better...? The progress of science and technology is always made with the contribution of several people who dedicated their life in understanding , putting questions, looking for possible answers, trying and trying again, as also Galileo Galilei said.
    Please leave out of our beutiful hooby, which is made by science too, all those parochialism...
    My best 73

    Did I not say this? I was not competing or implying either was smarter or more clever than the other. I was making general statements about both men that are basically true. They each had their own attributes, personalities, and influences from other great man of their age. They each contributed in their own way to our age. My statements were not arguments, nor were they meant to bring distraction or displeasure to anyone in Amateur Radio. This "old man" wishes everyone the very best.
