On December 12, 1901, at Signal Hill, in St. John's, Newfoundland, Guglielmo Marconi, listening through his telephone headset, heard a series of three "bips"; Morse code for the letter "s." He had received the first transatlantic communication, sent from a radio transmitter just over 2100 miles away, on the southwest coast of England.
