Did ya know Telsa set up his first station at his lab in Colorado Springs? Pretty cool, C.S., CO was the site of the first radio station ever! He did a lot of stuff in 1899 and 1900 down there. He's even rumored to have invented a death ray and received interstellar RF waves. He was a pretty sharp dude, although arguably pretty far off his rocker, too.
