Early radios used crystals to receive signals. Unfortunately, they could not amplify these signals very well, so operators could hear them only by using earphones. In 1907 LEE DE FOREST invented the audion, a vacuum-tube receiver that amplified signals a little bit louder than the crystal could. However, not even De Forest knew why the audion worked. During his junior year at Columbia, Armstrong discovered that the audion’s anode plate oscillated while receiving a radio signal. He then devised a circuit that fed this oscillating signal back into the audion’s control grid, thereby amplifying the original signal so much that it could be heard across the room without earphones.
