    In my work I have had the opportunity to use Rohde & Swartz equipment, I confirm the great quality and precision of these instruments.
    Thanks dr. Rhode.

    Thanks for the papers, have added to my reading list.

    I was fortunate to work N1UL on 20M FT8 on 2019-12-25 19:09.

    Truly a giant in our midst.

    This didn't sound quite right. A little bit of Googling and reading of Wikipedia indicates that R&S was founded in 1933 and N1UL was born in 1940. But he does have a connection. R&S was founded by Lothar Rohde (and Hermann Schwartz). Lothar Rohde is Ulrich's father.

    Short bio
    Only skimmed them so far, but they do look interesting. I have two of Ulrich Rohde's books on my book shelf and he has contributed several articles to amateur radio publications. He has contributed a lot to amateur radio.

    Ulrich's dad was the 'Rohde' in R &S. I believe Ulrich remains an owner in R&S.

    But Ulrich is a successful business man and inventor in his own right. Didn't come up on anyone's coattails.

    Ulrich was a recent co-author of a very interesting two-part series on metamaterial switching, in the latest Microwave Journal issues.

    Good morning to all, yes R&S was found 1933 by my father and his friend and colleague from the university and their first product was loss tangent measurement device for ceramic at RF frequencies.
    R&S has no outside share holder, only direct children become owners of R&S, which has about 13 ooo employees and $ 2.2 billions in sales.

    i control conflict free 25 % of the company, and unfortunately I am the only RF engineer amongst the owners, the rest have different education and interests.

    On the positive side having no external shareholders outside the two families we are really a well balanced team.

    Thanks for the interest and best 73 de Ulrich

    I think the thing that most interests the folks here is that you've not only maintained the legacy of your father, but personally extended that important spirit of innovation and progress into new realms , undreamed of just a few years ago.

    Ulrich is the man!:)

    Stay well!
