3rd Thursday at Hoover's presents "Clearing the Static: Herbert Hoover and Early Radio Regulations"
Radio as we know it today emerged at the dawn of the 20th Century--first popular with amateur operators then becoming commercially viable in the 1920s. Growth was so rapid that some control was necessary to make room on limited spectrum as radio enthusiasts were going “on the air” on any frequency, at any time and with any power. Professor Stephen Coon will discuss this history and also look at how regulatory decisions made by Herbert Hoover and others still affect today’s industry including social media.
