AM Broadcast Radio

Broadcasting in Canada Since 1901

Standard Broadcast stations operate in the medium wave band 530 - 1610 kilohertz



History

James Maxwell.  Postulated in 1864 that electric currents will
produce electromagnetic waves, and that light is just such a wave.

Heinrich Hertz.  In 1887 he built the first apparatus to produce electromagnetic waves from electricity.


Guglielmo Marconi.  Manufactured first commercial radio transmitters and receivers. Sent first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean in 1901. This led to the development of consumer radio receivers and public radio broadcasting by the Radio Corporation of America and the National Broadcasting Company in the 1920s and 1930s.

THE LEGENDARY VOLUMAX FOR AM RADIO PROCESSING


In the mean time, radio amateurs were busy continuing the experimentation of Hertz and Marconi and from their two-way communications discovered shortwaves.  Much of the technical discoveries and subsequent engineering in long distance radio came from these radio "hams".
1928 Regenerative Radio Receiver employing 1 tube.
For the average citizen, however, radio was, and still is, a standard broadcast band radio and enjoying listening to a program.
