THE BATTLE TO REACH 4000 MILES

TOOK PLACE IN LESS THAN 60...

LONG ISLAND, NY- Radio pioneers Nikola Tesla and Guglielmo Marconi competed to reach across the Atlantic Ocean with their new technologies. Also competing was the wireless station called Telefunken, a mysterious German-owned concern. This little-known station, which was the only one to consistently reach Europe, had not only an integral part in the development of the medium, but also a historic role in the United State's entry into World War I.

Hidden secrets, subterfuge and a legendary ship sinking were all part of the amazing, yet little-known Telefunken story... a story linked together by invisible threads.
