History –  The idea for the radio was conceived around the 1860′s  when Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell predicted the existence of radio waves. In 1866 American dentist Mahlon Loomis was the first person to wirelessly telegraph a meter connected to one kite cause another one to move, marking the first known instance of wireless aerial communication. Twenty years later, in 1886, German physicist Heinrich Rudolph Hertz gave a demonstration of how rapid vibrations of electrical currents  can be projected in radio wave form.
