    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...

Did u ever think about this? - 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.

Hello guys:
Every one of us knows that if we add 2+2 it equals =4 and if we multiply 2*2 it also equals =4 but think for a moment when we add 3+3 it equals=6 and when we multiply 3*3 it equals =9 instead of 6 as it was in the case of 2+2,2*2.
So do u know the reason?
Is it interesting?
any ancient mathemateician made like this just for fun

Hey guys, I want to apologize about my brother. Last week he pretended to be a Mexican nurse and now it's a Pakastani RF Engineer.

I'll take care of this. Again, I'm sorry for any inconenience.

Wow that is so strange! And also did you realize that 9-6=3!

and if you turn "3" sideways it looks like a pair of camel testicles!
