Reference to Reggie Fessenden is irrelevant here; the Fessenden name is too far-fetched and should not be mentioned. The link between the Radio SAQ, ... Sweden and Fessenden is extremely remote. We all know who designed and fabricated and enhanced The Alexanderson machine used in Sweden. Marconi had the idea for a high-power transoceanic wireless network and came very close to meeting his goal.

Alexanderson alternator and multi-tuned antenna at Varberg Radio SAQ -- W2ots (talk) 03:25, 14 February 2020 (UTC)

I call your attention to the the RCA Radio Central milestone (2018-15). The RCA Radio Central facility which was inaugurated in 1921 used two Alexanderson VLF alternators and mult-tuned flat-top antennas. Perhaps the Varberg Radio SAQ facility should be proposed as a special citation.
