What is your opinion of Sprint-Nextel? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas

I wonder if anyone has the same feeling I do; I am 50 yrs old and have been through many platforms of RF - ranging from 2-Way FM, trunking, amateur experimentation, and RADIO technology in general. I am now seeing that most new technology is IP based with advanced modulations like QAM .......I am feeling like I cant keep up with the new technologies and see myself as a "has-been" It seems that RF is becomming "plug and play" - is our RF knowledge valuable anymore? .......comments....?

    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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
