TimeLine1920y46w.jpg 1920 - A New Industry Evolves - Following the patenting of the telephone in 1876 and the subsequent expansion of telephony, the International Telegraph Union began, in 1885, to draw up international legislation governing telephony. With the invention in 1896 of wireless telegraphy -- the first type of radiocommunication -- and the utilization of this new technique for maritime and other purposes,
1920 - But of all the stations on the air in the early 1920s, the one to stir the attention of the public and the industry alike was AT&T's WEAF in New York.
1920 - it was decided to convene a preliminary radio conference in 1903 to study the question of international regulations for radiotelegraph communications. The first International Radiotelegraph Conference held in 1906 in Berlin signed the first International Radiotelegraph Convention, and the annex to this Convention contained the first regulations governing wireless telegraphy. These regulations, which have since been expanded and revised by numerous radio conferences, are now known as the Radio Regulations.
1920 - Westinghouse owned station KDKA in Pittsburgh, which began operating in the 1920s.
1920 - QST carries an editorial on CW vs SPARK as Amateurs take sides.
1920 - Radio Broadcasting Begins - General Electric Entered Broadcasting By Signing On WGY in Schenectady, New York. But of all the stations on the air in the early 1920s, the one to stir the attention of the public and the industry alike was AT&T's WEAF in New York. Westinghouse owned station KDKA in Pittsburgh.
1920 - The year 1920 saw the beginning of sound broadcasting at the improvised studios of the Marconi Company, and in 1927, the International Radio Consultative Committee (CCIR) was established at a conference held in Washington D.C. The International Telephone Consultative Committee (CCIF, set up in 1924), the International Telegraph Consultative Committee (CCIT, set up in 1925), and the CCIR were made responsible for coordinating the technical studies, tests and measurements being carried out in the various fields of telecommunications, as well as for drawing up international standards.
1920 - Voice Radio Broadcasting Commences.
1920 - Westinghouse builds a 1920-100 watt radio station in a little shack atop its nine story factory in Pittsburgh, KDKA. November 2, 1920, Frank Conrad and Donald Little broadcast election returns from 8:00 PM till after midnight- an event that is credited with starting a rush to build stations, and purchase receivers. ( 91 K Wav) not the actual broadcast, but an interesting re-creation) KDKA Rooftop Shack in the early 1920s. By late in the year, radio is being acclaimed as the newest form of entertainment for the home. The first superheterodyne circuit is announced by Armstrong. Westinghouse purchases the Superhet patent from Armstrong, along with several patents from Reginald Fessenden and Michael Pupin. The 'C' battery is introduced to provide bias voltage. This helps the 'B' battery last longer by reducing the amount of plate current needed on tubes. Radio experimenters spent over 2 Million dollars for radio parts in 1920.
1920ar - PATENT - Armstrong's U.S. Patent 1,336,378, (E. I Pupin and E. H. Armstrong) "Antenna With Distributive Positive Resistance," Filed Oct. 1, 1915, Granted April 6, 1920; Renewed June 20, 1919. CLICK TO VIEW PATENT

1920d - In the 1920s, De Forest had been trying to use electricity to improve sound recordings. He found a way to record sound on film, again adapting the work of others and using his Audion. This led directly to the creation of motion pictures with sound.
1920m - Marconi establishes the first short-wave radio link between London and Birmingham, England on 20 Megacycles. Although most experimenters and pioneers used the longer waves, Marconi never did fully abandon his efforts to use the short-wave bands.
1920m - Marconi's Chelmsford factory was location of the first officially publicized sound broadcasts in the UK.
1920r - PATENT EXPIRES: Fessenden/Poulsen's 1903 Patent For Broadcast Transmitter expires - High Frequency (sound) broadcast transmitter.
1920s - AT&T - SQUIER's Single Sideband - In the 1920s, AT&T used single sideband in regular transatlantic telephone communications. The problem was that it took a whole roomful of equipment to generate and filter a single sideband signal. Click to: No. 1355: Major General George Squier, Muzak, and Struggling to be Generous -- Engines of Our Ingenuity No. 1355: "George Squier" by John H. Lienhard Click.
1920s 0427 - THE BOSTON TRAVELER - April 27, 1920; May Talk To Europe Along Sea-Bed Wire; Discovery Announced by Gen. Squier - Bare Copper Strand Directs Message - Is Wired Wireless System; --(Bernard made handwritten note that Nathan B. Stubblefield of Murray Key demonstrated that this could be done prior to 1902, without the use of vacuum tubes).
••• Washington, April 27&emdash;An important development which may revolutionize the present system of world cable communication is to be announced here this afternoon before the National Academy of Sciences by Maj.--Gen. George O. Squier, chief signal officer of the United States Army. *NBSWiTel™©AFact
1921s 0514 - PATENT FILED: Bernard Stubblefield's U.S. Patent 469,703, "Means for Retaining Drafting Instruments," Thumb Tags, filed May 14, 1921, Granted Feb. 13, 1923.
1921 - Barron's, America's premier financial weekly, is founded; its first editor is Clarence Barron.
1921 - Clarence Barron hires Kenneth Craven "Casey" Hogate, who shortly afterward became the paper's managing editor and then later became president of Dow Jones.
1921 - David Sarnoff is named General Manager of RCA. The Dempsey-Carpentier fight is broadcast on WJY. This fight is broadcast to an audience estimated at 300,000. At nearly the same time as the fight ended, the transmitter overloaded - and was described later as a 'molten mass'. (Dempsey knocked out Carpentier in the Fourth round) Speakers began to replace headphones for listening. Attachments for holding headphones against the tone arms of phonographs are being sold. Signal strength is measured in terms of ..."I can hear it with the headphones laying on the table." There are 5 broadcasting stations on the air in December of 1921. WJZ broadcasts a Baseball World series game, pitch by pitch, getting the information by telephone.
1921 - The second transatlantic test is run and is a success. This spells the end of Spark as the Audion tube takes its place.
1921 - Warren G. Harding: Twenty-Ninth U.S. President, 1921-1923. (b. November 2, 1865 in Corsica (Blooming Grove), Ohio, d. August 2, 1923 during his presidency while visiting San Francisco, California). Married to Florence Kling Harding.
1921 - Westinghouse sets up stations WJZ in Newark, N.J. KYW in Chicago, Ill., and WBZ in Springfield, MA. A religious service was broadcast from Calvary Episcopal Church at Pittsburgh through KDKA. The engineers wore choir robes, as not to distract from the service. Station WJC (soon to become WABC) in Newark, NJ broadcasts regular bedtime stories.
1921d - De Forest applied for Sound of Film patent in 1921 (awarded in 1924) and tried to interest the film industry in his technology.
1921f - While Still A Teenager, the fifteen-year-old Farnsworth, had become excited by radio and television after reading about Rosing's work in a magazine. He created an electronic television system that was superior to the mechanical discs used experimentally at the time.

1921t - From 1921 to 1925, Tesla works with the Budd Company and develops new types of automobile engines for them.
1922 - AT&T - Interconnection of Stations - The first use of wire telephone lines for interconnecting a station in New York city and a station in Chicago, Illinois, to broadcast simultaneously a description of a football game, introduced a new idea into radio broadcasting. What is the Relevancy of Radio and wireless telephone Patent to the Internet? The transmitters were connected directly into local wired telephone exchanges for mass broadcasting from other stations.
1922 - GOVERNMENT REGULATION - The administration of the broadcasting industry regulations was entrusted to the U.S. Department of Commerce; Under the 1912 irrelevant set of laws, a rapidly increasing number of broadcasting stations (from about 50 in 1922 to more than 500 in 1923) were crowded into narrow wave bands, and interference from overlapping stations became intolerable.
1922 - In September of 1922 there are 537 stations broadcasting. Two frequencies are authorized for broadcasting...833 and 619 kc's. A third frequency was added later in the year - 750 kc. Approx. 100,000 radio sets are produced this year. Radio prices begin to fall, as competition to market radio's grows. WEAF in New York is the first to offer air time to advertisers. It was August 28th, at 5:15 PM - an infomercial on the Hawthorne apartment complex in Queens.

1922m - the World's first regular wireless broadcasts for entertainment commenced from the Marconi Research Centre at Writtle near Chelmsford.
1922s - Murray State Normal School. By 1922, the Teléph-on-délgreen Campus (85 acres) became Murray State Normal School. The college since that time didn't change it's name just once, not twice, but three times. The original Teléph-on-délgreen site is now Murray State University (MSU), with a student body of over 10,000. A memorial for Nathan stands 100 yards from the worlds first Voice Radio Station. The peaches, apples, watermelons and other crops that Nathan Stubblefield grew on Teléph-on-délgreen, were not only a source of pride, but they all became part of the memory that held special a symbolism to the deaths of Ada and his 3 infant children. Franklin, 1884, Carrie, 1885, and Wm. Tesla, 1905. CLICK FOR MORE STORY AND 1907 PHOTO OF NBS FAMILY Teléph-on-délgreen AND MEMORIAL / CLICK FOR MORE MSU STORY.
1922s - Murray State University Founded - When funding came in from the State to pay for Teléph-on-délgreen, Rainey T. Wells built the controversial Mansion for himself and his family on Teléph-on-délgreen, now the campus of MSU. Rainey became its president in 1926-1933, and the State's leading educator and fund raiser.
1923 - Calvin Coolidge: Thirtieth President U.S. President, 1923-1929. (b. July 4, 1872 in Plymouth, Vermont, d. January 5, 1933 in Northhampton, Massachusetts). Married to Grace Anna Goodhue Coolidge.
1923 - Radio Installed at the Whiten House by U.S. President Harding. The first Network broadcast was made, as WEAF, WJAR and WMAF are linked by phone. New radios became obsolete in 3 to 6 months time. Approx. 500,000 radio sets are produced this year.
1923 - Vladimir Zworykin invents the iconoscope and the kinescope, the basis for television.

1923m - Marconi joined the Italian Fascist party. Benito Mussolini made Marconi President of the Accademia d'Italia, which also made him a member of the Fascist Grand Council. He made Fascist speeches on the radio in a number of countries.
1923s - First Grandchild Of Nathan B. Stubblefield born: Jacqueline Stubblefield to Oliver Stubblefield and Priscilla Alden Stubblefield, followed by Natalie Olive Mae, then Keith (Troy). FOR MORE STORY SOULFIND
1923s - MSU - By the fall of 1923 no buildings were as yet ready on the raw new campus of Murray State, so this institution of higher learning also got its start at the school's new auditorium on Eighth and Main. During those first few months the new auditorium echoed with the sound of many university-level activities.
1923s 0510 - Brief History of the Stubblefield ancestry by Nathan B. Stubblefield at Almo, Kentucky. FOR MORE STORY SOULFIND
1924 - Alexanderson was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences
1924 - The present A.M. band is assigned. It spans 550-1550 kilocycles. President Coolidge's cat is lost...and found with the help of Radio. Over 1400 stations are now broadcasting. It is estimated that over 3 million radio sets are in use in the United States. Baseball games are broadcast almost daily. New radios - superhets, reflex sets, TRF's, and neutrodynes are much more complex, so a new industry begins to take shape - the radio repairman. Atwater Kent manufactured automotive and electrical parts before he got into radios. It does kind of resemble an oil pan. I found this under a counter next to some car parts at a second hand shop. I learned about Tuned Radio Frequency receivers while restoring this, and also of the joys of crinkle varnish. (By the way...Hi-Fidelity, it is not).
1924 - Wired Radio: Muzak. Shortly before George O. Squier's retirement in 1924, he turned his attention to a new application of the transmission technologies he helped to develop: piped-in music. His idea led to the establishment in 1922 of the music service Wired Radio, which is much better known by its present name, given it by Squier shortly before his death: Muzak."
1924al - On June 5, 1924, the first wireless telegraph picture was transmitted across the Atlantic. This was a handwritten page from a letter from Ernst Alexanderson to his father, Professor Alexanderson, in Sweden.
1924d - PATENT - Lee De Forest's Sound on Film patent granted. He tried to interest the film industry in his technology. Hollywood didn't start talking until 1927, when The Jazz Singer appeared in theaters as the first feature-length "talkie" using a method different from De Forest's work. Ironically, the industry later reverted to the sound method De Forest first proposed.
1924t - As Tesla neared his 80th birthday, the Foundation of the Tesla Institute was opened in Belgrade, supported by the Yugoslav Government, who gave him a honorarium of $7,000 a year. Today there is a Museum in his honor in Belgrade.

1925 to 1933 / CLICK FOR MORE NBS Study "K" TIMELINE -

1925 - John Logic Baird, Scottish inventor earned his place in history when he first demonstrates his mechanical television system at London Department store Selfridges & Co. Though his system of mecanical spinning discs amounted to little more than moving silhouettes, it was a start. By the early 30s radio enthusiasts could buy kits to build Baird's "Televisor" receivers to pick up perodic Baird Studio/BBC telecasts. Those programs usually consited of a 30 line picture with sound.
1925 - The Radio Corporation of America (RCA) released statistics indicating that of the 26,000,000 homes in the United States, 5,000,000, or 19.2 percent, had radio receivers, though the number of broadcast listeners was estimated at 20,000,000. In his Historical Dictionary of the 1920s (1988), James S. Olson notes that sales of radio went from $60 million in 1922 to $843 million in 1929. It is estimated that by 1929, approximately 35 to 40 percent of American families owned radios, and the number ran considerably higher, in some cases up to 75 percent, in both wealthy suburban and larger metropolitan areas.
1925 - AT&T establishes Bell Telephone Laboratories Inc. as its research and development subsidiary.
1925 - Fessenden filed suit for $60,000,000 against the Radio Corporation of America, The American Telephone & Telegraph Company, the General Electric Company, the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company, the Western Electric Company Inc, the International Radio Telegraph Company, the United Fruit Company and the wireless Specialty Appliance Company. His contempt for the leaders of "Big Business" and their methods is well-known. He has yet to back down in a fight with Wall Street, of which he has had quite a few.
1925al - Alexanderson became a Knight of the Order of the Northern Star, and, also in that year, a Knight of the Polish order of Polonia Restituta. These are only a few examples of the distinctions he received over the years.

David Sarnoff is named vice president of RCA. The BBC, British Broadcasting Corporation is granted a Royal Charter.
1926 - TWO-WAY MOBILE RADIO - The Detroit Michigan police department, became the first to dispatch police squad cars, by radio. These two-way radios operated in the 30 to 40 mc brands. Over 400 cities followed the trends by the year 1935.
1926 11 - RCA formed NBC as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Shortly thereafter, RCA added a second network, and the two networks were designated NBC-Red and NBC-Blue.
1926af - Fleming remained at University College until retirement in 1926. He retired to the quiet seaside town of Sidmouth in Devon. Although he retained the position of his Marconi consultancy almost to the day he died.

1926al - PATENT FILED - Alexanderson's 1,723,908 U.S. Patent Filed "Ignition System," (RFI suppressor), Patent filed June, 1926; issued August, 1929. CLICK TO VIEW PATENT
1926d - De Forest Predictions: "To place a man in a multi-stage rocket and project him into the controlling gravitational field of the moon where the passengers can make scientific observations, perhaps land alive, and then return to earth--all that constitutes a wild dream worthy of Jules Verne. I am bold enough to say that such a man-made voyage will never occur regardless of all future advances."
1926d - De Forest Predictions: De Forest made many correct predictions, including microwave communication and cooking, like "While theoretically and technically television may be feasible, commercially and financially it is an impossibility."
1926f - Farnsworth while still in high school, he conceived the basic requirements for television and in his third year at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, he began research into the process of picture transmission.
1926f - In 1926, at the age of 20, Farnsworth cofounded Crocker Research laboratories, to market his electronic television camera tube, he had just applied a patent for. The camera tube later became known as an image dissector.
••• ••• The camera tube created an image by producing an electronic signal that corresponded to the brightness of the objects being televised. Farnsworth demonstrated the image dissector in 1927.
1926r - PATENT - Fessenden's U.S. Patent 1576735 "Infusor" (for making tea) Granted March 16, 1926.

1926t - Tesla, at his 70th birthday dinner put on in his honor in New York, he described his wireless system and, of all things -- a death ray he had invented! He claimed his system was capable of communicating with the planets. -- Not only was Tesla a hopeless businessman, but also he was pretty careless with money. John O'Neil summed up his problem, saying that he lacked the personality (and character) that made possible the securing of financial returns directly from his inventions. Throughout most of his life, he lived in hotels, the Alta Vista at Colorado Springs, the Waldorf Astoria in New York, until he was thrown out for not paying his bills. He moved on from hotel to hotel, often with other people picking up the bill behind his back.

02 / TimeLine / Radio Act of 1927
1927 - RADIO ACT OF 1927 - The situation became chaotic with many stations choosing their own frequencies, and operating almost independently of any government regulation, until congress enacted the Radio Act of 1927; This legislative act remains the cornerstone of American television policy six decades after its initial passage. Though often updated through amendments, and itself based on the pioneering Radio Act of 1927, the 1934 legislation which created the Federal Communications Commission has endured remarkably well through an era of dramatic technical and social change; Congress first specifically regulated broadcasting with its 1927 Radio Act which created a Federal Radio Commission designed to regulate in "the public interest, convenience, or necessity." But federal regulation of communications was shared by the Department of Commerce and the Interstate Commerce Commission. By 1934 pressure to consolidate all telecommunication regulation for both wired and wireless services prompted new legislation with a broader purpose.
1927 - Televisions are being sold in kit form. The FRC, Federal Radio Commission begins to regulate broadcasting. Their first act was to revoke all licenses, and then assign frequencies and power levels.
1927 - The 1927 International Radiotelegraph Conference also allocated frequency bands to the various radio services in existence at the time (fixed, maritime and aeronautical mobile, broadcasting, amateur and experimental), to ensure greater efficiency of operation in view of the increase in the number of radiocommunication services and the technical peculiarities of each service.

1927f - Farnsworth, in 1927, formed, Farnsworth Television, Inc. (1929) which later known as Farnsworth Radio and Television Corporation (1938). All of these corporations stemmed from his first company which he cofounded in 1926, the Crocker Research laboratories.
1927f - In 1927, Farnsworth successfully transmitted an image, (a dollar sign) - composed of 60 horizontal lines and submitted his first television patent. He subsequently invented numerous devices, including equipment for converting an optical image into an electrical signal, amplifier tubes, cathode-ray tubes, electrical scanners, electron multipliers, and photoelectric materials. He also contributed to the development of radar systems, vacuum tubes, and the generation of electrical energy by atomic fusion.
1927f - On January 7, 1927, Farnsworth filed for his first patent application. This was the beginning of a continuous series of patent applications which he had to file in order to protect each improvement on his invention.
1927f - Philo Farnsworth: TV Camera - The picture was neon pink and the horizontal lines making up the image on the screen were almost a quarter-inch wide. A woman's face was just barely recognizable as such.
1927f - Since the networks won't likely re-enact Farnsworth's big moment, you'll have to visualize it for yourself. The setting: his modest San Francisco lab where, on Sept. 7, 1927, the 21-year-old self-taught genius transmitted the image of a horizontal line to a receiver in the next room ••• Later that day, he triumphantly wired one of his backers in Los Angeles: "THE DAMNED THING WORKS!"••• It worked -- just like Farnsworth had imagined when, as a 14-year-old Idaho farmboy already obsessed with inventing television, he had been plowing a field and realized an image could be scanned onto a picture tube the same way: row by row.
1927m - Marconi, on 15 June 1927, he married Maria Cristina Bezzi-Scali; Mussolini was best man. Their daughter was named Maria Elettra Elena Anna Marconi. Two years later, he was created a marchese (marquess) by King Victor Emmanuel III.

1928s - FIRST AUTOMOBILE RADIO - Radios were installed in automobiles for the first time in 1928, three years after Stubblefield's 1908, radio patent expired, and the same year of Stubblefield's death. But this unfortunate genius clearly anticipated such a modern luxury as early as 1908.

[sic] COLLINS] - The same idea was to be used in trains and steam ships, the patent declares.
