In 1904, Murgas patented his musical-tone system and began to construct towers needed for its demonstration. By 1905, he entered into a partnership with a group of Philadelphia-based investors to develop and market Murgas' system. Rev. Jozef Murgas was a gifted man and his ideas are a recorded part of an important frontier in the history of communications technology.
