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...

About F-type connectors - 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. If the folks at
phpBB would release a version with integrated
sign-in from the major social media platforms, I would resurrect the RF Cafe Forums,
but until then it is probably not worth the effort. 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.

Post subject: About F-type connectors
Wed Sep 01, 2004 10:24 pm
I am looking for a manufacturer of
quality F-type connector.
I have been lookign for a flanged cable
mount environmentally sealed F-type connector and hit the wall.
I know that F-type and quality are not very compatible but the application
calls for it.
Any suggestions? :?: :!:

I believe since the advent of digital cable TV and Cable Modem the need
for a higher quality F connectors came about. Cable TV is using much
higher frequencies then previously needed for analog transmission. They
even have nice new way of swedging them on to the cable to keep the
elements out. I would like to get the swedge tool and some of these
higher quality connectors as well. I'm sure I can find them if I take
a minute to look around. I'll post what I find when I have a minute.
