After 14 years, thousands of articles edited and countless product demos, Frank Bashore is retiring as Technical Editor of Microwave Journal. Frank became a staple at the MTT-S IMS and other events over the years, meeting with company representatives to discuss their latest products and surveying the landscape for the latest technical innovations. He served as the main contact for our many contributing authors, working with them to insure that their articles were published with the high standards expected in MWJ.

I’ve had the good fortune to have worked with Frank for all of these years, gaining a genuine respect for his talent, work ethic and good nature. We’ve travelled together to some exotic and some not so exotic destinations, played many rounds of golf and shared many lasting memories. His daily presence will be missed by all of us at MWJ, but we’re comforted in knowing that he will remain on our editorial review board, along with Harlan Howe, so they will both still grace us with their monthly presence. We wish Frank all the best in his well deserved retirement.

Microwave Journal welcomes Patrick Hindle, Technical Editor

Frank’s worthy successor is Patrick Hindle. I’m pleased to announce that Pat has joined Microwave Journal as Technical Editor. Pat brings more than 20 years of experience in the RF/microwave industry to his new position. He has held managerial positions at Raytheon, Alpha Industries/Skyworks, MIT and most recently at M/A-COM Tyco Electronics. His technical background and marketing expertise are assets that will serve our authors, readers and advertisers well in today’s dynamic publishing environment. Pat will contribute to the print magazine and our numerous electronic media products, bringing the latest product and technology innovations to our valued readers.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Pat on various MWJ projects during his years at M/A-COM and have come to appreciate his professionalism, creativity and pleasant demeanor. I look forward to working with him in the years ahead.
