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...

Manufacturers of RF tuners - 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.

I am looking for a an RF tuner covering
roughly 10 MHz - 3 GHz with IF centered at 70 MHz snd 40 MHz
instantaneous bandwidth. I can see plenty of chips that can be used
to build a tuner like this but I need
a finished product. Ideally,
I would like to get a tuner card that plugs into a CompactPCI chassis
but a standalone tuner would also be fine.
I have been searching
te internet for a while but I can't find many companies that build these
products. I've come across National Instruments, DRS and Phase Matrix
but I couldn't find a product that meets all the specs. Any other companies
out there in this sort of business?
