5 But this was a rare exception, as other systems maintained city-wide coverage through one central transmitter. 7 While these power levels are not high for light bulbs, in the context of radio they are considerable. Those high and powerful central transmitters were the main sticking point holding back system expansion. The central station could reliably communicate with the mobile units up to a radius of approximately 25 miles. Beyond that, up to a radius of 60 to 100 miles, the signal was too weak for consistent service, but strong enough to interfere with any other mobile radio system.

The subsidiary company Marconiphone was also the primary supplier of radio equipment for Britain for a time. In 1919 General Electric (GE) bought American Marconi for approximately $3 million to create the Radio Corporation of America (RCA). American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T) and Westinghouse soon bought into or signed agreements with RCA, although AT&T sold its share and left radio broadcasting in 1926, and anti-trust actions compelled GE and Westinghouse to divest from RCA in the 1930’s.
