Vienna Wireless Club Hosting a Very Special Event We at Vienna Wireless are hosting a special event,
W4F, from 18-24 December. We are celebrating the 120th anniversary of the first voice transmission by wireless. It was done by Reginald Fessenden on Cobb Island, which is just south of us here on the Potomac River, on 23 December 1900. He was quite an inventor and electronics expert. He made the first radio broadcast on Christmas Eve 1904, and was the inventor of the precursor to SONAR, as well as the first to use a carbon mike to transmit AM. We plan to have club members operate from their home stations on all bands, and all modes throughout the week.
