On the occasion of the centennial, Marconi's epoch making invention and discovery that made long distance wireless communication possible, are remembered. Marconi's invention of the digital modulation of the Hertzian wireless waves and the discovery of the grounded waves that could bend to the curvature of the earth overcoming hills and obstacles, inaugurated the new revolutionary age in communication in the twentieth century. Marconi's wireless apparatus that made him the world's first microwave communication engineer is described and his work evaluated in light of the thoughts and activities of contemporary scientists.
