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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Anyone can succede in America - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

How many of you knew this? I didn't.


Peter Jennings is Anchorman and Senior Editor of ABC Television's “World News Tonight with Peter Jennings.”

Peter Charles Archibald Ewart Jennings [didn't GHWB get chastized by the news media for have more than 3 names?) was born in July 1938 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His father Charles Jennings was, from the founding of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in the 1930s, the voice of CBC and came to be known as the “Edward R. Murrow of Canada.”

His powerful father gave his nine-year-old son his own nationwide show, “Peter's People,” on CBC Radio. The weekly half-hour program featured news and music for children.

As a child he was “bone lazy and a bit delinquent,” Jennings told a Good Housekeeping Magazine interviewer, and he found school “boring.” He was expelled from several private schools, then dropped out of school forever before completing 10th Grade. His father discouraged him from seeking a career in broadcasting, so the high school dropout worked for three years as a teller at the Royal Bank of Canada before taking a job at a small Ontario radio station.

In 1961 Peter Jennings found work at one of Canada's first private television stations, where his jobs ranged from newscaster to host of a Canadian version of “American Bandstand.” When this station became part of the new private national network CTV, his famous last name vaulted Jennings to the position of co-anchor of its national evening news. Executives of the fledgling American Broadcasting Company (ABC) quickly noticed this rising northern star.

“My mother…was pretty anti-American,” Jennings said on the September 6, 2002 CBS “Late Show with David Letterman. “And so I was, in some respects, raised with anti-Americanism in my blood, or in my mother's milk at least.”

What? No earned college degree? Jennings made his way to the top through hard work and talent alone?

Why, that makes him like, dare I utter it, Rush Limbaugh!!!

Has yet another Liberal ivory-tower-made-of-glass been shattered?
