Even as the regenerative-circuit lawsuit continued, Armstrong was working on another momentous invention. While working in the basement laboratory of Columbia's Philosophy Hall, he created wide-band frequency modulation radio. Rather than varying the amplitude of a radio wave to create sound, Armstrong's method varied the frequency of the wave instead. FM radio broadcasts delivered a much clearer sound, free of static, than the AM radio dominant at the time. (Armstrong received a patent on wideband FM on December 26, 1933; his just rewards required much litigation at the end of his life, and beyond it.)
This documentary in print on the life and work of the eminent scientist-inventor, Dr. Lee DeForest (1873-1961) is the result of 25 years of extensive research, which reveals the facts of his vital accomplishments contrary to industrial history, previously written books, and recent film presentations which suppressed and demeaned his works. At last the public is told the true story of how in 1906 DeForest's invention of the electron tube amplifier changed the world, making possible long distant telephony, and amplified sound devices used today. Even DeForest's 1920 patent for sound-on-film recording is still in use in all modern sound films.
