Security was always suspicious, so a form of alphabetic encryption was introduced as a safeguard. This required an ever-changing code set, along with special handling and extra time to manually decipher the transmitted message. Furthermore, the cipher code had to be kept current at all locations to achieve correctness.” (Denham, 2009)
Wireless technology has been traced back as early as the 1800’s. Wireless technology came about because of many individuals who all had one common ability and that was the ability to think outside the box. A man by the name of James Clerk Maxwell helped discover the science of electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the interaction of positive and negative charges that have come together and regulated by one force. “There are four main effects resulting from these interactions, all of which have been clearly demonstrated by experiments: 1. Electric charges attract or repel one another with a force inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them: unlike charges attract, like ones repel. 2. Magnetic poles (or states of polarization at individual points) attract or repel one another in a similar way and always come in pairs: every North Pole is yoked to a South Pole. 3. An electric current in a wire creates a circular magnetic field around the wire, its direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) depending on that of the current. 4. A current is induced in a loop of wire when it is moved towards or
