Good RF engineers are worth their weight in gold. And the work is only going to get more complex and difficult as we as the FCC sells off more spectrum to broadband wireless and cell phone systems. Any young guys out there that want a solid career, start learning RF engineering and coordination.

I'm lucky in that Tulsa, Oklahoma is not nearly as hostile as the big markets. It's fairly easy to find 40 or so good channels on any given night and we don't have a lot going on in the area, other than City Hall right across the street.
