In reference to Jack Browne's article on page 104 of the April 2007 issue of Microwaves & RF ("LDMOS RF IC Amplifiers Boost 100 W At 90 MHz"):

You sent me to the dictionary. Who actually uses "demesne" in this day and age? Particularly odd in that Microwaves & RF is a technical journal and not a literary journal.

Jack Browne responds: Hello, Dan. Thanks for reading. I was hoping that someone would take notice. I have long tried to educate and entertain in what I do, and I am glad that you took the time to reach for a dictionary (and still were able to find one). I have a "checkered" past that includes degrees in Math, English, and Philosophy with work experience in Physics, so you might see where using a word like that would come from.

Good to hear from you and thanks for reading my twisted takes on the microwave industry.
