Karl Ferdinand Braun: “During the development of radio, he also worked on wireless telegraphy. Around 1898, he invented a crystal diode rectifier or Cat’s whisker diode. Guglielmo Marconi used Braun’s patents (among others). Braun’s British patent on tuning was used by Marconi in many of his tuning patents. Marconi would later admit to Braun himself that he had “borrowed” portions of Braun’s work. In 1909 Braun shared the Nobel Prize for physics with Marconi for “contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy.” -Wikipedia

Marconi was also nearby on Long Island: “Guglielmo Marconi had a radio station built to communicate with inbound and outbound ships on Fire Island Ave in Babylon. There is a picture of the radio shack in Babylon Historical Museum, Montauk Hwy, Babylon. The original site is marked with a plaque at Fire Island Ave and Virginia Avenue in the town of Babylon.” Marconiville  [First Guided Missile 1917-1918]
