I WAS PLEASED to learn of the induction of my father to the Microwave Legends. I don't know who nominated him, nor who wrote the biographical sketch. It is mostly right, but one glaring error does exist. In the sentence, "This hobby' quickly grew into the Bliley Piezo-Electric Co. in Carlisle, PA," the city should be Erie, PAwhere the company still exists. For future information, please look at my history of the company on the web at http://Bliley.net/XTAL.

Missing MM-Wave Parts
IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE to read your magazine, espeically when your coverage extends to that often-forgotten part of the industry at millimeterwave frequencies. However, I was dismayed to see very little information from some of the long-time suppliers in the industry, notably on the component side of millimeter-wave technology. Why were so many millimeter- wave components companies omitted from the report?
Jack Browne responds: Thank you for writing. I apologize for the omission. The story on mm-waves was mainly about companies providing the full end-to-end millimeter-wave links--companies like Broadwave. The intent of the article was to provide a "high-level" view of what types of system solutions were being developed. It didn't have a lot in there on the component level. Because components are certainly critical to the mm-wave space, however, I will be sure to cover mm-wave filters and more in an upcoming issue. feedback
