This section is for all the stuff that doesn't fit into any of the other
1. Early Transmitters
A brief look at some of the early transmitters designed to get around
Bell's patents. A gas-powered transmitter? Some of the oddities as well
as those that worked.
2. Emile Berliner
The man who made Bell's telephones work. He is better known for his work
on the Gramophone.
3. Johann Phillip Reis
He almost certainly invented the first working telephone, but he overlooked
one critical fact. He didn't realise that he had invented it.
4. David Hughes
A brilliant man who laid the groundwork for many carbon transmitters.
5. The "British Ericsson"
A popular and reliable telephone widely used in Australia.
6. Antonio Meucci
Did he really invent the telephone?
7. Clement Ader
He is mainly known for his work on powered flight, but he also designed
telephones and invented the forerunner of the radio broadcasting station.
An idea before its time?
9. The Pantelephone
