    This pure BS. NOBODY was listening. Headphones were not in use until much later. The messages were printed on paper tape like a telegraph ticker tape. There was nothing to hear.

    That is correct. The detector was a coherer. No headphones.

    I learned years ago from a Tour Guide the first rule of tour guiding: You don't have to be correct or right -- but just keep talking.

    Yet no mention about the multiple 2 way transmissions by Tesla from Colorado to New York and back 2-3 years before Marconi? Oh thats right people don't care about inter-US communications, they wanted to talk overseas (and still do today). Also no mention of Marconi illegally using Teslas "devices" and patents to accomplish his feats.
