The History of the Development of the
Modern Communications Receiver — Part I

Dennis Kidder, W6DQ will be our guest speaker at the April meeting presenting part one of The History of the Development of the Modern Communications Receiver. Part I covers the first 75 years of "wireless" leading up to the beginning of World War II. Dennis will answer some nagging questions like: Who invented the first practical receiver? Was Marconi really the inventor of wireless? Who the heck was James Lamb and what did HE have to do with anything? The development will be broken down into a series of "defining moments" that lead up to where we are today. Spark to superhet, the first 75 years. Dennis will come back for Part II that runs through the war years up to present day, and he will make some predictions about the future.
