Through a combination of skill, tenacity, luck, vision, and timing, Marconi popularized - and, more critically, patented - the use of radio waves.

Caernarvon, Wales. Inthe Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company constructed a KW wireless transmitting station (callsign MUU) in Caernarvon to send transatlantic messages to the US from ten foot masts atop Cefndu mountain in Snowdonia. The station served throughout World War I and remained in operation until The station at Clifden was destroyed by Irish rebels inand its service was taken over by a newer long wavelength station at Caernarfon (Carnarvon) in Wales.

In the 's the advantages of short wavelengths for long distance radio communications were discovered, and were investigated systematically by Marconi.

But, consider this, Marconi would not sell his wireless installations, they could only be leased and manned by his own company operators.

The cost of this arrangement must have affected ship-owners’ decisions about whether or not to install one of Marconi’s ‘wireless stations’.
