📻🎙️
Guglielmo Marconi, founder of the Marconi Company, is seen as one of the main inventors of radio.
He was particularly known for his creation of a practical radio wave-based wireless telegraph system which significantly improved the development of radiotelegraphy.
In 1909 Marconi shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Braun “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy”.

International Marconi Day is celebrated  by amateur radio enthusiasts from around the world making contact with Historic Marconi Sites, while using communication techniques similar to those used by Marconi himself.
