Buy components when you are a Ham Radio ? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi Guillaume!

Yes finding components for our homeprojects can be really hard! Some RF-components can be found at Barend; http://www.xs4all.nl/~barendh/Indexeng.htm

(Hope it's ok to put a link at the forum, :roll: )

Hope this helps!

I hope it is not too late. Please check www.digikey.com, www.mouser.com and www.jameco.com. I use these sites for many years and they work well. Minicircuits is very expensive and almost always you can find your parts for smaller price.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
