Wilkes-Barre



We visited place of Jozef Murgaš - pioneer of radio transmission. He was the first who successfully transmitted radio signal over land. It is not widely known, but Murgaš won a patent lawsuit against Marconi. To be historically correct, Marconi did the first transmission over the water surface, but he was unable to broadcast over land before he learned about Murgaš.

A country similar to Slovakia - perhaps that's why Slovak immigrants liked it here.
