Hello, I got to look up the origin of Radio and its history. I sincerely learnt that one of the key ways of getting things done is by perseverance. See the post made by
Nikhil Patel, Grad Student at Syracuse University, NY on Quora.
Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay climbed the Everest on May, 1953 and one of the things they did was to try radio. They may have thought of listening to music, radio or news. You can imagine how hard it would have been for them to catch signals of radio over 70 years ago on the top of Mount Everest.
They tried the following stations.
  1. All India Radio
  2. BBC
  3. Voice of America
  4. Radio Moscow
None of them worked.
They then tried First Ever Radio of Asia named Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and they caught the signals.
