In the Midwest we have a functioning IEEE EMC society chapter. It seems more
viable to me to heighten the level of SI oriented activities in it rather than
starting a separate SI society, given the smaller number of high-tech companies
here. Besides, I have to deal with both and have difficulty seeing the
distinction in practice much of the time. Secondly, I'm seeing increased
blurring of the distinction between high speed digital and microwave skills.
However, a couple of notes of "let the buyer beware." The IEEE has always been
heavily oriented to motors, elevators, power stations and academia (read
esoteric Ph.D. thesis publishing, especially in the Midwest) as opposed to
practical RF & high speed engineering as such. The IEEE absorbed the Institute
of Radio Engineers in the 1960's, essentially killed it, and ever since has not
been strong in that area at a practical applications level.
