Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

I am currently in a physics Ph.D. graduate program deciding what to do with my life. I have an oppurtunity to do research and get a Ph.D. in RF design in the engineering department. Would a Ph.D. be any more benficial than a Masters for finding jobs in industry? However outsourcing is scaring me very much. I am also rethinking this career path and just becoming a dentist.

Education is a great asset, but it is even greater when combined with industrial experience. If you have a chance to be involved in a research project within a company, this would help you improve your career.
If you are armed with Ph.D and some industrial experience then the sky is really the limit for you. I am sure there are plenty of opportunities for you to pursue some internship or do your dissertation/research sponsored by a company.
Don't consider to become a dentist, maybe the salary is higher, but taking out teeth all day long, oh well...
