Microwaves & RF Editor in Chief, Nancy Friedrich, interviews Blake Peterson, the first recipient of the "Living Legend" award. This award was inspired by Microwaves & RF's online hall of fame, dubbed “Microwave Legends.” Blake Peterson has greatly impacted the microwave industry, having worked at both Hewlett-Packard Co. and Agilent Technologies, and he truly is a "Living Legend".

I am a former Hewlett Packard Field Engineer.
One of my main accounts was the Eastman Kodak Company.
Blake Peterson came out and did a two day seminal at
Kodak. He trained about 70 Kodak engineers about spectrum
analysis. That following year my customer purchased many
spectrum analyzers. I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
I am eternally grateful to Blake.
