Electrical Experimenter (06:01) May 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"All American radio men are acquainted with Edwin H. Armstrong, the young genius who devised and patented the now well-known "Armstrong Circuit" for Audions, by which it became possible to make a single bulb regenerate or develop radio-frequency oscillations, so that undamped, as well as damped, waves could be received and amplified. Captain Armstrong is now in France with the American Expeditionary Forces. His skill in the radio art will prove of supreme value to the American army."
This issue of Electrical Experimenter is from May 1918. The cover and feature story is the “Television and the Telephot” by Hugo Gernsback, and describes an early model of a mechanical television. There is also an editorial on the importance of machinery in the “modern” warfare of World War I, an article about E.H. Armstrong serving in France, and several radio articles.
