July 20th 2019 marks 82 years since the death of Guglielmo Marconi (25 April 1874 - 20 July 1937), one of the pioneering inventors and scientists that helped launch the field of modern radio communication.

Marconi built upon the radio transmission experiments of earlier scientist and inventors of the 1800s, such as Heinrick Hertz, Edouard Branly, Sir Oliver Joseph Lodge, and James Clerk Maxwell.
