Letters from the Editor
Relaxing after a tour of the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu are (from left) Marti and Barry Wallen with Dave and Janet O'Neil. The 2007 IEEE International Symposium on EMC will be held in Honolulu.

I am pleased whenever I learn that folks are actually reading the Newsletter. I never take this for granted, as I know we live in an age of "information overload" and just reading all the e-mails we receive can be a daily challenge!
Every once in a while I get a letter, e-mail or phone call with comments from readers. It's always good to hear from our readers, so do contact your Editor or any of the Associate Editors should something stand out in the Newsletter.
An example of a reader "success story" occurred with our last issue. One reader saw the letter from Clayton Paul in the Winter 2003 issue wherein Clayton was requesting a donation of any used, good quality test equipment for his EMC lab at Mercer University. Next thing I knew, I got a call from Dr. Paul stating that he received a donation of a gently used HP 8568B spectrum analyzer! Guess his writing that letter was worth the time and effort!
Let's keep the dialogue going! Let us hear from you about the Newsletter.
