Landell de Moura was ordained to the priesthood in 1886 in Rome. He also studied the physical sciences, and following his radio broadcast over 8 km in São Paulo, he was granted a Brazilian patent on March 9, 1901. Landell de Moura then travelled to the United States and secured three patents there, for a Wave Transmitter on October 11, 1904, a Wireless Telephone, and a Wireless Telegraph, both dated November 22, 1904. His subsequent requests to the Brazilian government for assistance in developing his invention were denied, and his efforts then languished.
