Description: Bill Daniels first saw a television set in Denver, Colorado, in 1952. A Navy veteran and an oil insurance salesman, he found two young engineers, Gene and Richard Schneider, raised some money from oil executives, and built a cable system in Casper, Wyoming, to bring the Denver TV signals to that town. The system was one of the first in the west and the first anywhere to use microwave to transmit broadcast signals over long distances to cable systems.
