Radio history dates back to the 1860s when James Clerk Maxwell who was the mastermind behind the idea predicted the existence of radio waves together with others like Wilhelm Weber, Michael Faraday, and Friedrich Kohlrausch. Later Heinrich Hertz a German physicist demonstrated this further by showing that there existed radio waves like those of light in the space.


Later an Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi proved feasibility of radio communication and received the first radio signal in 1895. Three years later, the first wireless signal was flashed across the English Channel. In 1861, the first radio telegraphed message was received in Newfoundland from England.
