1862 __ « An improved method of conveying electric signals without the intervention of any continuous artificial conductor »
John Haworth (?-?)
Comment : On March 27, 1862, John Haworth, a forty-two year old Yorkshireman living in Notting Hill in London, patented “An improved method of conveying electric signals without the intervention of any continuous artificial conductor.” He made remarkable claims; apparently transmitting messages wirelessly for a distance of ten miles from Notting Hill to Croydon; for about fifty miles to Brighton; and to Bangor, in Wales. The Board of Directors instructed Cromwell Varley, the Company’s electrician, to experiment with apparatus constructed according to the instructions of Mr Haworth. His two stations were only eight yards apart but “he could not get any signals, although the experiments were varied in every conceivable way.”.
