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...

Great job, Italy! - 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.

Take a look at this picture of a shipping cargo container filled with terrorist weaponry. It was discovered by an Italian officer on a boat from Turkey, bound for New York City.

Anybody doubt that terrorism is a huge problem?

Not to diminish the excellent job of the Italians in finding the arms or the threat of terrorism, but I have to believe that these guns were probably intended for the illegal gun market in the US and not for "terrorists". Unless we're calling gang members "terrorists" now. Now if they had found a bomb or biological agents or something along those lines...
