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...

What is a good cheap mobile wireless transceiver? - 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.

Hey all,

I am new to this forum. I am an Electrical Engineering student at UMass Amherst. I was just wondering what would be a sufficient mobile wireless transceivers, which would be used in a car. I was thinking WiMax would work or 802.11g/n.


Moderate Range: 200m
Low Cost: under $200
Data rate ~ 1Mb/s
Mobile: yes
Freq: 2.4GHz to 5GHz
packaging: DIP Style

If anyone has any suggestion, please feel free to respond.
