Foote, Pierson & Company relay with an M. I. Pupin property tag. We may never know if
Armstrong used this relay in his early experiments.

This unexecuted agreement between Armstrong and the German company Hochfrequenz Maschinen Aktiengesellschaft fuer Drahtlose Telegraphie (The High Frequency Machine Corporation for Wireless Telegraphy), usually referred to as HOMAG, was to allow the Germans to use the regenerative circuit at their transatlantic station at Tuckerton, NJ. However, by 1916, the year of this agreement, the U. S. Navy had already taken over operation of Tuckerton, and by February 1917 had ordered all German employees to leave.
