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...

v.o.i.p. - 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.

Although most people probably think of Internet telephony when they see VoIP, voice chatting as with Microsoft Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger is also VoIP.

My first VoIP experience was with a crude video/audio camera setup I did between my home and my inlaws' home back in the late 1990s. Both computers had around 33k baud dial-up connections. It was lousy, but it did work, kind-of.

I am actually looking into buying a couple USB headsets to try for use between work and home. The USB headsets are more expensive, but take care of the A/D and D/A functions so the computer does not have to be burdened to do it.
