Radio Pioneers Part of FCC Site and Exhibit

Pioneers of radio’s underlying technologies are honored in an FCC exhibit and Web site.
The commission has an ongoing history project; this is the second phase.
“The particular focus of the exhibits is mobile radio and its applications for safety, business, and personal uses,” it stated. “The first phase of this history project looked at television.”
The pages at “cover the ideas that made radio possible, the power that made radio realistic and the quality that made radio popular. The work of Hertz, Marconi, Fessenden, Tesla, Alexanderson, DeForest and Armstrong are briefly covered on these pages.”
The site includes depictions of displays that can be seen at FCC headquarters.
