---- Although todays FM radio stations can use a single transmission tower atop a building, Stubblefield found that his 1902 Teleph-on-delgreen wireless telephone station and first ship-to-shore broadcast, required a more elaborate antenae setup -- like todays AM radio stations and moble two way telephones.
---- The top of Stubblefield's Teleph-on-delgreen 50 foot broadcasting tower did not only serve to transmitt electromagnetic signals through space, but his land, vehicular and ship towers required special groundless aerial hookups to pick up voice signals.
---- His portable land broadcasting induction system was connected to a rod like 4 foot antenae stuck in the ground. The rod was attached to energized induction copper-wire "radials," each buried in the ground, extending aprox. 300 feet out from the base of the tower like beams from the sun.
---- Stubblefield found that his EM signals would travel further when his energized induction copper-wire "radials" were buried in a low damp earth environment, conected to either a coil or loop aerial connected to the center rod.

ˆ The Original Electromagnetic
Wave Patent Holders, Their Public Demonstrations & Their Fate - 1882 - 1931
NBS100 Telecom FCC STUDY

1882 - 01 Nathan B. Stubblefield demonstrated his ability to send a signal across the Murray Courthouse Square without wires. Note: Nathan's wireless signal moved the needle of a compass from north to south, to east-west, the area where Nathan was standing with his transmitter.
• 1882 - 03 Edison developed the first central electric light power station.
• 1882 - 05 Professor Amos E. Dolbear was able to send signals over a distance of a quarter of a mile without wires. Note that Prof. Amos Dolbear preceded Hertz and Marconi.
1885 - Grover Cleveland: 1885-1889.
1885 - From 1885 to 1913, Stubblefield invented, developed, manufactured and sold, both his wired mechanical telephone, and his wireless telephone systems through his own companies, partnerships or corporations he owned shares of stock in.
1885 - In 1885, Stubblefield reportedly succeeded in sending voice between two parallel antennas by utilizing the same principles Ward and Loomis developed in sending damped signals but via a low-frequency undamped electric wave dispersion system. It was limited in distance, but wireless (needs supporting citation).
1885 - The Stubblefield Coal-Oil-Lamp Lighter, Patent No. 329,864, dated November 3, 1885. Click to Go To U.S. Patent Office -- then Click Full Text to refresh page. This was the first of four patents filed by the 25 year old, Nathan B. Stubblefield of Murray, Kentucky.
1885 - 1913 - The companies Stubblefield was involved in were the NBS Enterprises, The Wireless Telephone Company of America, The Gehring-Fennell-Stubblefield Group, The Continental Wireless Tel & Tel Company, The Collins Wireless Telephone Company, and Teléph-on-délgreen (citation needed).
1886 - Nine years before his contemporaries, Marconi, Tesla and Fessenden mastered sending Dit Dahs, (the Morse Code), Nathan Stubblefield was the patent holder and owner of his own telephone company, (1886).
1886 - Professor Amos Dolbear of Tufts College obtained a patent for an induction method of wireless telegraph.
1887 - German physicist Heinrich Hertz first discovers Radio Waves. He transmitted an electrical spark which was heard in a receiving circuit a few meters away, thus the term Hertzian Wave. Hertz demonstrated that the velocity of radio waves equaled the speed of light. The unit of frequency was named in his honor.
1888 - The Stubblefield Mechanical Telephone Patent No. 378,183, February 21, 1888. Click to Go To US Patent Office -- then Click Full Text to refresh page. Nathan B. Stubblefield and Samual Holcome patents their mechanical "vibrating" telephone system. The first permanent mechanical telephone installation was in Murray, Kentucky to demonstrate and sell franchised telephone rights or territorial deeds around the United States.
1889 - Larynogophone: Nathan B. Stubblefield - In 1889, Stubblefield developed what was to have been an improvement on his mechanical telephone, and he renamed the device the "Larynogophone." It was basically the original mechanical telephone but with a hearing tube and a bell added to his copper wired telephone system that emitted Sideband Electromagnetic Waves.
1892 - First Wireless Telephone Broadcasting Demonstrations: (Voice) Nathan B. Stubblefield's first public "wireless telephone" demonstration was given in the town square of Murray, Kentucky, a radius of about one half mile.
••• By connecting his telephone apparatus to his newly invented electrolytic coil earth battery -- he transmitted and detected continuous undamped electromagnetic waves, at a radius of about one half mile;
•••Using his grounded bare wired aerial system connected to his loop coil antenna, placed on top of his receiver -- he was able to talk back and forth "without wires" to others with a like telephone and loop antenna, or broadcast voice and music to those listening through a mono-earphone piece; (The so-called Hertzian Wave, was produced by coils that emitted sparks, and could not transmit voice signals).
•••Rainey T. Wells, who later became the founder and president of Murray State University, was one of the first persons to hear Stubblefield's wireless voice transmissions. Rainey became his assistant in the 1892 exhibit. The public exhibits demonstrated Nathan's;
•••• 1. Own Aerials;
•• • 2. Own Inductive Coupling To The Aerial And Ground Circuits;
•••• 3. Own Tuning Coils and Detectors, to Obtain the Desired Wavelength, and;
•• • 4. Employed his own power source emitted from the earth that acted both as a "hot spot" to transmit a continuous flow of electricity to power his transmitter signals through space, and as an unlimited supply of electricity that simulated a charged-up battery, ready to be used at will. *(See Footnote.) Ice House. *
1892 - The first permanent wireless telephone broadcasting installation was in January, 1892. The station was constructed in Murray, Kentucky, by Stubblefield's Teleph-on-del-green Industrial College, now the campus where Murray State University is located.
1894 - 02 The first permanent wired telephone exchange switchboard installation in Murray, Kentucky, was on February 12, 1894.

1894 - The first permanent wired telephone exchange switchboard installation in Murray, Kentucky, was on February 12, 1892. The telephone service was constructed in Murray, Kentucky, by the Nathan Stubblefield's Telephone Manufacturing Co., on the town square to work in conjunction with his wireless telephone operation.
1895 - Wireless Telegraph Demonstration: (Dit dahs - no voice) Guglielmo Marconi - In the spring of 1895, what Nathan B. Stubblefield did with wireless voice transmission in 1892, Guglielmo Marconi did with dots and dashes utilizing damped electromagnetic waves emitted by his Ruhmkorff coils (see 1897). He discovered that his "black box" utilizing the Ruhmkorff coil, could send controlled messages, by touching two electrically charged wires together in a dit dah manner - over distances far greater than those from his villa to the garden -- distances which would travel more than a mile. It was Marconi's great basic invention. Like Stubblefield, he built an aerial -- an antenna which he connected to one side of the spark gap. (Hertz had merely used a horizontal rod ending in a plate). The aerial was a metal cylinder atop a pole. He connected the other side of the spark gap to a ground -- at first, a copper plate lying in the ground. The receiver also got an aerial and ground.
1897 0713 - Transmitting Electrical Signals by Ruhmkorff Coil Patent - (Dit Dahs, No Voice) - Guglielmo Marconi, Electromagnetic Spark Transmitting apparatus, was granted on July 13, 1897, United States Patent No. 586,193.
