What is the radio?

-A radio, is the transmission of signals through free space by electromagnetic radiation. These waves are called radio waves. Electromagnetic radiation travels by means of oscillating electromagnetic fields that pass through the air and the vacuum of space. Through the radio, we can play music or listen to radio stations.

After that invention, the first telegraph was created by Samuel Morse. He then introduces some changes in this telegraphs; the strip of paper and the Morse Code. This code, transmits a type of message through dots and dashes. Thirty five years after those events, the telephony is created. Making this new technology able to transmit sounds through a cable. After that moment, voice transmissions are able to be done through the new technology added to the telephony, creating what we all know as the radio. Adding after a while, what we all love about the radio today; music and programs.
