In this paper it is shown that the extra ordinary amplification and high sensitivity of the regenerative detector is caused by the chaotic behavior of the system during operation. The detector was invented by Armstrong in 1922. We demonstrate the chaotic behavior using computer simulations. It is shown that during the period in which the irregularities appear, the amplification of incoming signals is maximal.
