This ground breaking transmission was made in December,1900 by Reginald Aubrey Fessenden on Cobb Island, MD, between two masts 50 feet high and over a mile apart. The first successful transmission of intelligible speech by electromagnetic waves was a critical milestone in the development of radio. Further developments using a carbon microphone resulted in Fessenden becoming known as the “Father of Amplitude Modulation”. More on Fessenden can be found at: Reginald Fessenden - Wikipedia
