The Belmar Station was the location of Edwin Armstrong's demonstration of his regenerative receiver, that greatly strengthened radio signals, making them more audible to the human ear, to David Sarnoff of American Marconi in January 1914.  The demo took place in the construction shack outside the unfinished Operations Building.
