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...

Here is a case where getting two for the price of one is not a good deal. In July of 2006, a Chinook helicopter
struck the 1000-foot transmission tower for television station
WFXL, in Albany, GA. The tower had to come down because it posed a risk to the
WALB tower standing next to it. Experts were called in. The
WFXL guy wire charges went off as planned (visible in the video) and things were going well... until a wire from
the collapsing antenna got tangled on the WALB tower guy wire. Well, that's one way to take care of the
Demolition of the WFXL Tower... 2 for the price of 1
