Since its earliest development, radio communication has been critical to the operations of the United States Navy. Powerful radio towers on shore transmitted coded messages to Navy ships, where trained radio operators and de-coders managed the exchange of vital mission information. When the United States entered World War I in 1917, all radio development was controlled by the Navy to prevent its possible use by enemy spies.
