  OTB - "Forgotten" Pioneers of Wireless, Part 5 - Karl Ferdinand Braun
Karl Ferdinand Braun was born on June 6, 1850 in the German city of Fulda.
Braun then reduced the number of antenna wires and poles to three and was able to excite the wires from a common transmitter by arranging the poles in an equilateral triangular pattern.
Braun made a modification in the layout of the circuit for the dispatch of electrical waves so that it was possible to produce intense waves with very little damping.

As early as 1839, the German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss speculated that an electrically conducting region of the atmosphere could account for observed variations of the Earth's magnetic field.
The notion of a conducting region was reinvoked by others notably in 1902 by the American engineer Arthur E. Kennelly (1861 - 1939) and the British physicist Oliver Heaviside (1850 - 1925) to explain the transmission of radio signals around the curve of the Earth's surface, before definitive evidence was obtained in 1925.
