GSM Online Referances - 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.

Greetings Careerat9:

Unless college has changed a lot since I graduated (1989), then do not think that not understanding the terms and principles of real-world engineering means you have no hope. Most college textbooks do a good job of imparting basic technical knowledge without necessarily imparting practical knowledge. If the practical is included, it is usually hidden within the plethora of equations and graphs.

In the last 5-10 years there have been many books written that cover exactly the topics you are interested in. Unfortunately, most seem to be priced over $100, so unless you can access them in a college library or at work, it will be very expensive.

I keep a fairly up-to-date list of book on wireless systems on the following page on RF Cafe. I have read two or three of them just in the last year and have found them very helpful. Amazon has a feature where they print the table of contents and index and a few of the pages in the body of the book so you can get a pretty good idea of what is inside. You can also read through some of the reviews to see what other thought of the book.

Good luck in your search.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
