Signal Hill: The Birthplace of Modern Communications

(via Amusing Planet)  Overlooking the harbor of St John’s, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, is a massive piece of rock towering 140 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. The rock, known as Signal Hill, stands on St John’s eastern shore.  It was on top of this hill, in December 1901, that Guglielmo Marconi stood to receive the world’s first wireless transatlantic transmission.
