I have been a reader of Microwaves & RF for more than 30 years, and I was very sad when I read your editorial ("The Odyssey Of Claire Wainwright," Editorial, June 2007, p. 17) about my very good friend Claire Wainwright. Apart from being a representative of Hewlett-Packard in Catalonia, I also represented Telonic Industries.

Claire was a very kind person and also a good engineer, especially in sweep generators and filters. It is very gratifying to me to see how you remember brilliant people like Claire who have rendered services to their country.
