Hijacked Resume Example

Here is an example of a resume that was literally hijacked and posed on a resume board by someone else. In this case, the resume that was hijacked belongs to me, Kirt Blattenberger. The content shown below is exactly as I copied it off of the WirelessDevNet Career Center website. Here is the URL for the resume if you want to see it for yourself. I don't plan to ask for it to be removed just because is serves as such an excellent example. Thanks to Kelly Painter for finding this!

Test Experience

Accordingly, much of my time as an engineer has been spent in a field and military

environment building, tuning and measuring circuits and systems .My borrowed

motto is, "If it hasn't been tested, it doesn't work." No amount of simulation

and planning can suffice to declare a design working without testing over all

planned operational conditions. Test equipment is listed below

Test ?quipment Familarity

Spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, frequency counter, power meter, SINAD

meter, frequency synthesizer, signal generator, DMM, gain/phase meter,

I/Q test set, logic analyzer, arbitrary waveform , generator, noise figure meter,

analyzer, modulation analyzer, passive intermodulation (PIM) analyzer

(including GPIB interface to many)

documented, tested and integrated RF/analog transmit/receive chain of

Multi-Purpose Airport Radar (MPAR) IR&D project. S-Band through baseband

up/down conversion using combination of coaxial and waveguide components

was accomplished. Interfaces to digital controller circuits included

LVDS, RS-422 and relay implementations. High speed PIN switches and

attenuators; low noise amplifiers; high precision, low noise opamp

circuits; and precision A/D converters were used.

Provided technical support to field engineering effort responsible for

initial testing and verification of active element phased array antenna.

Planned and implemented physical integration of radar system areas at

Performed analysis and designed front end for UHF/L-Band, 4-channel,

direction-finding (DF) airborne receiving system including BIT

circuitry. Combination of connectorized and discrete components employed

in implementation of two chassis assemblies and an 8-layer,

surface-mount PCB.

Designed S/C-Band multi-octave front end for 8-channel DF system.

Completed project planning and design of test station to support depot

maintenance on a tracking and ranging S-Band receiver employed in the

Air Force Satellite Control Network (for AlliedSignal Technical Services

Co.). Design of 10 MHz distribution unit, S-Band AM modulator, and

creation of an overall testing philosophy were my primary responsibilities.

Founded Waypoint Software in 1992 to market TxRx Designer software.

Conceived of and wrote TxRx Designer software (all versions) in Turbo

Pascal. Wrote and published user's manual. Owner of all copyrights. TxRx

Designer is a full-featured frequency conversion and cascade analysis

CAE package with a custom graphical user interface.

engineering journals. Instituted customer response and order processing


Conceived of and wrote EE Ref software in Turbo C++ for Windows. Owner

of all copyrights.

Lead engineer for the redesign of a van-based mobile interrogation

system used in automated utility meter reading (910 - 960 MHz).

Performed system analysis for transmit and receive subsystems.

Eliminated long-standing modulation-induced spurious output from

transmitter while increasing output power. Designed new low noise front

end for downconverter. Specified higher performance Tx/Rx duplexer.

Modified receiver cards to improve bandwidth and detector response.

Wrote and performed extensive system test and production test

procedures. Very successful program.

Served as Design Engineering interface to Manufacturing for production

related issues on van-based and handheld units.

Responsible for RF and analog design of a Single-Channel-Per-Carrier

earth station modem for the Inmarsat satellite system. Incorporated an

O-QPSK/BPSK modulator/demodulator for translation of baseband

voice/fax/data information to a 70 MHz IF within a dense, multi-layer

surface-mount board. Active and passive filters, A/D, D/A, RF

amplifiers, PIN attenuators, power splitters/combiners, mixers, and a

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


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...
