Start of Radio Facsimile

    Early Work

    With radio activities increasing early in the last century, it was only natural that wire facsimile workers should turn their attention to the new transmission medium.

    The following references cover the period starting with Knudsen´s (Electrician, Vol. 61, pp. 89-90, May 1, 1908) work in 1908 up to 1929.

    At that time the various applications for radio facsimile had definitely crystallized.
