A way that the tribes overcame this issue was by setting up different points and each drummer would acknowledge the sender’s message by a series of beats on the drum. After the message was confirmed received then the message would be sent to the next receiver.

The downside to this form of communication was the limited distance based on line of sight. Due to a limited alphabet and the issues, that the wind causes would increase the chances that the communication would be lost or misinterpreted. Soon followed was the introduction of the semaphore flag. The semaphore flag system is one used to convey information at a distance by using signals with flags, paddles or gloved hands. The downside to this form of wireless communication is that it is limited to line of sight as well, and that because this had to take place in the open the chances of your message being stolen is increased.
Science that Drove Wireless Development


“In the nineteenth century, light beams were used for short-haul communications, particularly in military contexts. Very detailed messages could be transmitted by a coded sequence (Morse code) of blinking lights from sender to receiver. Again, this was effective over limited distances and provided a quiet, yet visible means of communication. Drawbacks included limited
