What's new on Microwaves101?

As is always the case, we've been busy adding plenty of new features to Microwaves101. We ain't been slack, Cap'n Walker!

Happy Cinco de Mayo, Amigos.  A lot of people are saying (jeez, are we all using that phrase now?) that there's never been a millionaire on death row in the United States. Across the border, Emperor Maximilion I, a relative of Marie Antoinette, had his last chance to sign humanity's guest book on 19 June 1867, courtesy of his less than loyal Mexico subjects and deposed president Benito Juárez.  What's new on Microwaves101 for April and May 2017:

  • Check out BBT Line, a small business that is developing affordable power combiners. Follow the Golden Rules of Engineering: Don't make what you can buy, and support small business!
  • Dr. Andrew Zai has greatly added to our page on additive manufacturing, describing the work done at Lincoln Labs using deposited dielectrics (including some great photos).  While you're on that page, please admire our "historical" information on the topic at the top of that page, including a sweet hat worn by a real-gone villain.  Are we the only ones out there binge watching Lost In Space on Hulu?
  • Our Unknown Editor rants on... this time he is trying to figure out just what was so great about 'Murica, 40 years ago. Check out that haircut, and read a story that involves nudity!
  • We added a new link to a table of high permeability materials thanks to Mark. We're not giving up on trying to capture all the best microwave engineering information in the universe on this site, but sometimes we take shortcuts.
  • It's hard to keep track of all the dead microwave nameplates, that's why we created the where-are-they-now page. Thanks to Keith, we've got a new list of all the brands that are now under the Smiths umbrella, and a list of the brands now owned by Crane.
  • A while back, we asked why Raytheon did not name the original microwave oven the "RaydarRange" instead of the RadarRange. Turns out they did. Thanks to Ed for the tip!
  • Simone from Spinner has provided an updated waveguide flange list. Along with some minor fixes, she's added the new millimeter wave flanges published in the standard IEEE Std 1785.2-2016. Thank you ma'am!
  • This month we have awarded our cheesy Microwaves101 gift to Jim, who helped us straighten out some entries in our acronym dictionary.  We appreciate the help!  How about everyone that reads these words looks up their favorite obscure acronym and send us a note if it is missing?
  • What do you need? A moving image of grating lobes? Yeah, we got that (thanks to Ryan). Come check it out.
  • Meanwhile on our message board, someone awaits your advice on stability in power amplifiers. Did you ever try to make your own species of RF coax connector? Join this conversation.  If you don't have an account, create one and start socializing your ideas, questions, and solutions today!

Attention forward thinking microwave marketeers: check out information on advertising with us. Sponsorship information is but a click away... come and share the magic of 15,000 page views per weekday. Hey that rhymes!

As always, we want you to sign up for the MW101Stuff newsletter, or submit a photo for our Microwave Mortuary. We'd love to hear from you, whether you have nice things to say about Microwaves101.com or just want to tell us how we've ruined your life.
