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...

Gemini space program - 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.

Kirt, I loved your factoid on the trips to the areospace labs at UM. I was a student there in the 1970s - about the time you were roaming. Now I have someone to blame my less-than-successful lab assignments on ;-). It really brought back memories.

I've worked for NASA as an electrical engineer for almost 30 years now, mostly at Langley. You would have loved working here. It's like a kid in a candy shop. We've had upand down times, but overall a really great career. My bad back will force me to take early retirement. It's great to have a site like RF Cafe to visit on a daily basis for a perfect mix of technical content and humor/personal interest. I can really relate to all the Estes rockets you flew way back when.

Well, buddy, take care, and keep up the great work! Maybe we'll meet af a flying event some day - I'll look for an RF Cafe T-shirt!
