As we begin our second year, the IEEE Journal of Microwaves hopes to build on its early success in reaching out to both authors and readers in what can only be regarded as an auspicious first step into the realm of fully Open Access publishing within the microwave community. Through a combination of innovative ideas, supportive administrative staff, a technically superb Editorial Board, high quality standards, and a personal focus on our readers, our authors, and our reviewers, we have managed to build up a modicum of community support and a very loyal following. Many of our authors have submitted multiple articles over our first year, despite our lack of rank and impact factor. They have been rewarded by an outstanding number of article views: now over 100,000, putting us near the very top of IEEE's technical journals ranking for downloads/article published. In this first issue of 2022, we bring you twelve regular technical papers, two invited articles, and two more of our special series articles: Microwave Pioneer Charles Elachi, Dare Mighty Things and Women in Microwaves subject Maria Stuchly, a pioneer in microwaves in medicine. We know you will enjoy these and all of this issue's technical features.

At this juncture, the EiC would like to single out several individuals within the IEEE Publications community who have gone above and beyond in support of our fledgling publication. Over the autumn quarter, we again want to single out our Manuscript Central trainer and guru for all paper submission and review process problems: Sonal Parikh. Also, Louis Vacca, who continues to generate our Flip-Books, and makes sure our requested Inaugural print issue copies get sent out every month to our requestors, now numbering over 1600 persons in eighty countries!We would also like to thank MTT Society Administrative Committee member Professor Anding Zhu for continued support of web content, and social media outreach for JMW. Tim Pastore and Dena Hoffman at IEEE helped us with an e-mail blast campaign this autumn, and Carl Sheffres and Ed Kiessling at Horizon House generously provided IEEE J. MICROWAVES a full page of advertising space in the November issue of Microwave Journal. We are very grateful! Finally, this EiC cannot thank enough our Administrative Editor and proof-reader extraordinaire, Kara McArthur, who is always willing to help out in a pinch and who this autumn, brought us Sharri Shaw. We also acknowledge our IEEE Production Editor, Joanna Gojlik and all of our superb Topic Editors. We all meet regularly to discuss our philosophy, exchange ideas, bring in new authors and readers, and work tirelessly to make this journal the best it can be!
