Edwin Armstrong is arguably the greatest radio inventor since Marconi. His regenerative receiver was followed in 1918 by the superheterodyne, the basis for nearly all modern radio receivers. During the 1930’s Armstrong developed high-fidelity FM broadcasting. His FM technologies found their way into two-way mobile radio, and radar during WWII.
The New Jersey Antique Radio Club’s Radio Technology Museum will host an observance of the occasion at the InfoAge Science History Learning Center and Museum in Wall Township, NJ on January 26th and 27th 2013 from 1 to 5 PM. There will be a display and demonstration of a wide range of vintage regenerative radio receivers with a formal presentation at 2 PM. The other InfoAge museums will be open as well. Admission is free.
A five-dollar donation to InfoAge is suggested.
