MLinkPlanner Microwave Communications Link Planning Software

MLinkPlanner Microwave Communications Link Planning Software - RF CafeMr. Oleg Sakharov, Director of the Center of Telecom. Technologies, LLC, recently sent me information on the MLinkPlanner software for performing microwave communications link design. Judging only from the provided screenshots and the online documentation, MLinkPlanner looks to be very user friendly and loaded with features. I downloaded the 7-day free trial and did a quick fictitious link between my house in Erie, PA, and the WBEN AM radio station in Buffalo, NY. My route is mostly over Lake Erie, so there was not much in the way of obstructions, other than the curvature of the earth ...

Anatech Electronics' December Newsletter

Anatech Electronics Newsletter for December 2017 - RF CafeAnatech Electronics, a manufacturer of RF and microwave filters, has published its December newsletter. In it, Sam Benzacar writes his annual "RF and Microwave: The Year in Review." He addresses the emerging technologies that are actually making 5G a reality in spite of the seemingly insurmountable obstacles presented by the realities of physics. We've been there before with other newfangled technologies; i.e., Bluetooth. Sam has a very quotable line regarding the driverless vehicle craze, "And for laughs, there's always driverless vehicles, a goal driven (it seems to me) by people ...
