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...

Stacking RF boards - connector choice ? - 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.

Hi Cafe visitors,
I would like to have an RF module plugged into a mainboard with
some coax connectors F<= 2GHz. What do you think is the best choice
I am thinking along the lines of MCX or
MMCX, or even the new MMBX.
I think MCX is still the cheapest.
Any ideas ?

I concur with your decision. Those connectors
have been fielded successfully in millions of products. Just be sure
to choose a vendor that can supply the quality that your application
requires. Not all connectors are created equal.

I used some SMB style connectors from
telegartner a few years back. They were nice
and had a swivel that
made registration a breeze.
In quantity, they weren't too bad on
the price, about a buck.
