## HP Seminar Notes

Here is our collection of seminar notes. Most are contributed by John Miles KE5FX... thanks! Seminar notes are not widely published by HP/Agilent, and are very hard to find... unless you were lucky enough to attended the presentation!

HP Seminar Notes And Other Articles: General
Topics |

1950-2000 | John Minck, "Trade Magazine Articles From the career of John Minck" (5 pages) [John's contributions span 50 years!!!] |

1986 | John Minck "A (Modest) Proposal to Establish a National Bureau of Microwave Standardization" (4 pages) [Note from John Minck in June 2009: "I'm going to suggest one particular article that I did as my role in the National Conference of Standards Labs. I was national president in 1978, but we watched the NBS of the time continuously get mandated new tasks by Congress without the accompanying funding. At one time I got Time Magazine to run an article on the underfunding of NBS, but nothing much happened. So I wrote this attached article to try to get more microwave industry attention to speak up."] |

2007 | Gail Heck-Sweeney and John Minck "Metrology: From Antiquity to the Modern Age, with a Look at the New Frontiers" Speaker notes are embedded in the PDF, use the |

2001 | John Minck article in the NCSLI Newsletter 40th Anniversary Issue. Note from John Minck in June 2009 "In the 2001 issue I wrote a long Narrative History of NCSLI and got some of the original founders to recall their memories of the need for a formal organization to work on national and global metrology issues in 1961. John Van de Houton and Jerry Hayes were prime movers and their stories of the condition of our national standards of those years up to 1961 were frightening. Missiles were being shipped and didn't work and measurements didn't agree. There was not even the concept of traceability." |

2006 | John Minck article in the NCSLI Newsletter 45th Anniversary Issue. Note from John Minck in June 2009 "The 2006 issue I got several authors to point to the future of metrology, including several international organization leaders." |
