By Kurt N. Sterba & Lil Paddle
From the foreword:
As the inventor of the super heterodyne receiver and the Frequency Modulation system, many accolades have come my way. I feel that Iím in a position to say that the accolades received by Kurt and Lil (from the knowing) have been justly and greatly deserved. – Major Edwin Armstrong
After I placed the grid element between the cathode and the anode, I was often called "The Father of radio." Probably it could be considered that my children are George and Gracie, Jack and Mary, Lucy and Desi, but the ones Iím most proud of are, of course, Kurt and Lil. – Lee De Forest
As you know, my first brush with fame was being the radio operator on duty who received the distress call from the Titanic. However, I can think of an even greater disaster. And that is those who refuse to understand the brilliant teachings of Kurt and Lil. – General David Sarnoff
