However, Westinghouse moved aggressively to establish itself as a national and international provider of radio communication.Its primary competitor in this effort was the Radio Corporation of America (RCA), which had recently been formed as a subsidiary by Westinghouse's arch rival, the General Electric Company of Schenectady, New York, using the assets of the Marconi Company of America. In order to strengthen the company's patent position, especially related to receivers, he spearheaded the purchase of the International Radio Telegraph Company, primarily to gain control of a "heterodyne" patent originally issued to Reginald Fessenden, and also arranged for the purchase of the commercial rights to the regenerative and superheterodyne patents held by Edwin Howard Armstrong.During the war, Westinghouse received government contracts to develop radio transmitters and receivers for military use.They used recently developed vacuum tube equipment that was capable of audio communication.In September 1920, a newspaper report noted that "a new high-power station, to operate under a special or commercial license, is being installed at the Westinghouse plant in East Pittsburgh.It will be used to establish communication between the East Pittsburgh plant and the company branch factories at Cleveland, O., Newark, N.
and in order to create demand for the receivers, he decided that Westinghouse should provide regular programming as an incentive for persons considering a purchase.KDKA (1020 k Hz AM) is a Class A (clear channel) radio station, owned and operated by Entercom and licensed to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.Its studios are located at the combined Entercom Pittsburgh facility in the Foster Plaza on Holiday Drive in Green Tree, and its transmitter site is at Allison Park.Following the development of vacuum-tube transmitters that made audio transmissions possible, the first spoken-word election night broadcast was made on November 7, 1916 by the De Forest Radio Telephone and Telegraph Company's station, 2XG, located in the Highbridge section of New York City, in conjunction with the New York American, announcing the results of the Wilson-Hughes presidential election.Frank Conrad had originally planned to broadcast the election results over 8XK, in cooperation with the American Radio Relay League, but shifted his efforts to help with the Westinghouse broadcast. Little had primary responsibility for constructing a 100 watt vacuum-tube transmitter.
