There appears to be a strong reaction among some radio engineers that information theory, or if you prefer, communication theory, is an extremely obtuse and impractical subject useful only as an amusing pastime for mathematicians. Comments are heard much in the same vein as those once made in the aircraft industry about theoretical aerodynemics “It ain't practical, no good will come of it.”
