For their advances, both Reginald Fessenden and Major Armstrong should 
recieve at least equal credit with Marconi for the practical invention of 
radio as we know it.

Lee DeForest may have "invented" the Audion tube, but it took Edwin Howard 
Armstrong to show the world how to use it.  Even DeForest didn't know what 
to do with it.  DeForest was nothing but a "shill", a phony, plain and 
simple.  He was a legend in his own mind, at the cost of others. On the 
other hand, Howard Armstrong was a genius with a multitude of inventions to 
his credit including Frequency Modulation
