Welcome RFTEJerry as the T&M Forum moderator - 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.

I am pleased to announce that the Test & Measurement Forum now has a moderator.

Screen Name: RFTEJerry.

Jerry and I worked together briefly while I was with Harris, in Florida, way back in the mid-1990s. He brings to the forum 30 years (+/-) of experience as a test engineer. Jerry's years of designing and troubleshooting sophisticated automated test equipment (ATE) systems for military customers includes hardware, software, simulation, and project management. He is a no-nonsense guy with little tolerance for bureaucratic idiocy. In many ways, we are kindred spirits.

So, please welcome Jerry as moderator. He will devote available time to responding to your posts and generally working to encourage greater participation in the forum.

Thanks, Jerry.

Hello Test and Measurement Forum members,

My 32 year engineering career has been all in the test and measurement field. I have designed test instruments and ATE systems for Harris Corp, ATE systems and TPSs for Grumman Corp and now Lockheed Martin. The last 23 years have been in RF test. I have used almost every piece of RF test equipment made by HP/Agilent and have also used some by Anritsu and Aeroflex.

I want to thank Kirt for his trust in me to moderate this forum and I encourage all to participate with your questions, comments and answers. It is through sharing our experiences that we grow in our knowledge and I firmly believe in brainstorming - no questions is to simple and no answer is stupid.

I will try to do my best to serve you as the moderator for this forum.

Please feel free to contact me at RFTEJerry@yahoo.com

Happy testing,


Simon Liu

About RF Cafe

    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...
