    While many physicists and scientists preceded G. Marconi in the development of concepts and some limited demonstrations of specificelectromagnetic phenomena , Marconi spent his life to make these disorganized principles practical for communication. It was not enough to demonstrate the effect of remote EM sensing merely for scientific papers. Marconi spent his life creating a wireless communication system, which required developing the first technical, business, mass production, trained & equipped maintenance workers, global logistics and standardized methods and protocol. I was amazed to learn how EARLY Marconi Wireless was routinely providing global wireless communication, including being integrated into the wired telegraph and later telephone systems of the developed world of his time. Before Marconi wireless, once out of sight, ships at sea were out of touch until back in sight of a light house or semaphore station. Pre-wireless ship-to-ship communication could be very dangerous, usually requiring closing on the other ship, perhaps in rough seas: a recipe for disaster. With Marconi wireless, entire fleets fleets could maintain mutual aid and contact with shore. Before Marconi, there was no maritime (and little military) radio direction finding. Marconi engineers not only brought DF to practical maritime use, they also provided a shore network for multiple MF/HF DF shots to determine ship locations: a LIFE SAVER for a ship unable to see the sky for a celestial fix. Marconi Wireless provided contract financing for installation, training and maintenance.

    One radio communicates with nobody. G. Marconi's practical use of the scattered technical development he combined into the first global wireless network. I think that makes him quite special.

    yes but at the end.... the finally is that Tesla is know for the AC current and Marconi in all over the world of the Father of the radio , and ONLY marconi received the PRIZE NOBEL , hi hi :) 73

    Marconi was a PHONY!
    Nikola Tesla was the greatest!!

    In the end Marconi's patents and credit was taken away and given back to Nikola Tesla.
    Tesla invented radio 2-3 years before Marphony stole the credit.
    Many pieces of radio equipment Marphony used were actually Nikola Tesla's.
    Marphony attempted to patent Tesla inventions by calling them a different name.
    Marconi was a failure. The only thing that made him famous was his parents were wealthy and Marphony kissed the butts of influential men.

    Tesla did it first if i remember correct and had an earlier patent. During ww1 marconi tried to sue the us government. He lost the lawsuit and at that time Tesla's earlier patent would be restored. This was after tesla had died but he did in fact create the first radio. Marconi was also a very interesting person. Tesla did not care about money as much as he did about inventing. He was a true inventor in every sense of the word. He was screwed over and over by those that took advantage of him however he kept going. It is amazing that he had the fortitude to continue after all the the crap he dealt with. I still believe to this day that his idea of free electricity can be achieved if only we could tap into our unlimited supply revolving around the earth in the upper atmosphere.

    Oh boy, "'It's deja vu all over again'
    Too cold out for that kind of contest and besides it might freeze.

    Tesla invented several of the concepts and inventions used in radio. Marconi put them all together and made a radio to communicate with.

    MARCONI was the FIRST INDIVIDUAL to bring together all the CLEVER HUMANS who'd come before HIM to actually make "POINT-TO-POINT" communications POSSIBLE !!! He didn't INVENT WIRELESS but he did BRING IT ALL TOGETHER to launch another "HUMAN REVOLUTION" !! !BLESS THE OL'BOY for accomplishing that GIGANTIC FEAT !!!
