As you already know if you are planning to be at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) this year, it is being held from June 2nd through the 7th in Boston, Massachusetts. The last time the IMS show was in Boston venue was 2009, and RF Cafe was there. It was my very first IMS show. The entire day was spent taking photographs and meeting as many RF Cafe website advertisers as possible. I also got to visit with a few people from companies I used to work for. The National Electronics Museum had a very nice display set up showcasing the evolution of the Microwave industry.
Up until a couple weeks ago, Melanie and were planning on returning this year to the IMS show, but some family matters have required some extensive travel lately that makes the thought of driving to Boston very tiring. Therefore, it is unlikely that we will make it.
I had hoped to be able to visit with RF Cafe advertisers again (some of which were advertisers back in 2010). Alas, doing so will have to wait until some other time.
As part of my preparation for the show, I did a screen capture of the interactive exhibit floor map provided on the IMS 2019 website. Even though the booth layout is fairly logical and numerically ordered, anyone who has been to such a venue knows that navigation can be confusing. The included map highlights all of the RF Cafe advertisers who will be exhibiting. About a third of all my advertisers will be there. If you have the opportunity, please stop by and thank them for supporting RF Cafe and, while you're there, take a look at what they have to offer.
