Why so hard to find 802.11 field engineers? - 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.

Excuse the attempt at a punny Username (H ed Hunter) :lol:

Seriously, though, I have been looking for field applications engineers for my client company's 802.11a/b/g product line (semiconductor fab house), and it is nearly impossible to find experienced, highly qualified engineers.

The coverage area includes the Americas, Taiwan, China and Europe (in other words, just about the entire Earth). I have reqs for many such people, but cannot find the right candidate.

I'm told these guys can name their price and terms, but I have not even been able to contact one of them.

Does anyone out there know where to seek out and find such talent?

Thanks for you assistance.

Without personal bias, it is not hard to find.

I have 20y in wireless, 3 years in OFDM and 10years in spread spectrum R&D, chief Scientist. This is not enough to convice them.

I used Philips simulation software and many others.

Every company thinks the software they use is unique and best in the world. The question goes - do you know puff, Ansoft, air, ads, eagleCrash or do you have 20 years experince in ultra wideband? They think single person is capable to know only single software package.

What can help open their eyes? Ask them if they have more advanced products than Philips. :roll:

    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...
