Interesting Facts

1. This interesting fact is explaining how a radio wave works. It relies on the radiation of energy from a transmitting antenna in the form of radio waves. These radio waves, traveling at the speed of light (300,000 km/sec; 186,000 mi/sec) carry the information. When the waves arrive at a receiving antenna, a small electric voltage is produced. After this voltage has been suitably amplified, the original information contained in the radio waves is retrieved and presented in an understandable form. This form may be sound from a loudspeaker, a picture on television, or printed page from a teletype machine. (Encyclopedia)

2. Some people thought Nikola Tesla invented the first radio, but he didn't, it was really Guglielmo Marconi who invented the first radio. (Wikipedia)
