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...

Football/Nascar/F1 fans... would you rent this service? - 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.

I don't understand it.
If I wanted to watch a race on TV, it would be a heck of a lot cheaper to pay the cable company or a satellite tv company for service and stay home. The purpose of going to a race is to see it in person. I would pay to see races that are not presently covered by video media, but this 'service' does not appear to be anything like that.

My mindset is much like yours. I would never pay to have such a thing. However it seems most don't get the full feel for what these devices are capable of just from viewing the website.

Each service varies quite a bit from the other.

For example, with the Nascar unit you can get all of the in car camera channels that are available via Direct TV plus you can listen to the drivers communication with the pit crew just by typing in the car #. For many years Nascar fans have carried scanners, so this may appeal to that crowd. If I'm not mistaken Nascar is where Kangaroo has been most successful.

With the NFL version you can watch any NFL game that is in progress, see live updated stats on any game and any player plus all fantasy football stats.

I haven't seen what you actually get with the F1, Le Mans and EPGA services.
