Weird facts about radios.
The word “broadcasting” comes from the farming industry.
The term actually means “wide scattering of seeds.” The word didn’t become related to the radio until the 20th century when the first radio broadcasts were created. Like broadcast sowing, radio broadcasting also involves a large scattering of stuff: radio waves, songs, and entertainment.
WLW Is the most powerful radio station in history.
The most powerful radio station in history is Cincinnati’s WLW. The station broadcasts at 700KHz. At some point in the 1930s, the station’s radio wave was 500Kw radiated power. During the 30s, those who lived close to WLW’s transmitter could hear the audio in their pans, pots, and mattresses. WLW is actually still around today and is now owned by iHeartMedia.
It took a ship to sink to normalize overseas radio.
The sinking of the Titanic in 1912 led to the use of radio at sea. It’s not that there was no radio system on the Titanic. The radio system on the ship actually saved lives. When the ship was sinking, sailors used the radio to contact the nearby ship and rescue passengers. The disaster would eventually play a part in the creation of the Radio Act of 1912.
The Eiffel tower is basically one big radio antenna.
It wasn’t meant to be, but over the years, the famous Paris landmark engineered by Gustave Eiffel has been used a few times in radio. The first public radio broadcasts were done at the top of the Eiffel Tower by radio scientists. Also, The Eiffel Tower was meant to be removed after twenty years. However, it survived because the military saw its value as a radio tower to intercept crucial military transmissions during World War I.
