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...

Equipment building recommendation needed - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 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.

I'm planning a base station for a local medium power WLAN and low power FM station (both licensed) and I need a recommendation of a pre-fab equipment building to put at the base of the tower. It only needs to be about 10'x10' with a cooling fan (A/C not required). I have 120/220 VAC, 150 A and phone service at the site. :smt102

There are plenty of options online but I'd prefer to go with one someone has had a good experience with.

Thanks guys.

I've used Crest Precast for a couple of these 8x16' concrete shelters. They're not cheap, but they'll withstand any kind of environment you can throw at them. Mine are installed in Iowa tornado country. It'll still be there when the tower is gone!
