Invention of Radio

Within the history of radio, many people were involved in the invention of radio technology that continues to evolve in modern wireless communication systems today. Radio development began as "wireless telegraphy", first invented by David Edward Hughes. Later, during the early commercial development of wireless technology that followed the first Hughes demonstrations, highly publicized disputes arose over the issue of who could claim credit for the invention of radio. The enormous publicity and commercial importance of these disputes overshadowed the much earlier theoretical, experimental, and applied work of James Clerk Maxwell, David Edward Hughes, Heinrich Hertz, Jagadish Chandra Bose, and others.
