In 1900, Tesla began the construction of an incredible 200 foot coil with a dedicated powerplant. Tesla’s vision was far ahead of its time, including the concept of one-to-many broadcasting, radio navigation signals, encrypted communication, a broadcast time standard, and wireless image transmission.
