    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...

Hell had an opening - 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.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews

:!: Arafat has assumed room temperature. Hell had an opening last night.

The world is finally free of the Father of Modern Terrorism. He is credited with inventing suicide bombings using children as messengers and hijacking airliners. He has stolen billion$ from the people he claimed to represent. The civil engineer from Egypt has prevented "his people" from knowing peace for 40 years. What a hero he is. Good riddance. Maybe the Palestinians will choose a real leader now.

Aren't the Frenchies wonderful people? Look at how they honor the nice man.

How nice that the Frenchie president spoke so warmly of the little terrorist. With any luck, now terrorists will stick to just murdering Jews and leave the loving Frenchies alone.

Why, are the French soldiers killing people in the Ivory Coast today? Oh, that's right, they're only killing the local Christians - that makes it alright. They wiped out the IC Air Force, too, and that's really mean.

Russia so loves the goon that they're naming streets after him:


Of course France was the first with the idea, making its announcement right after Arafat's death. Probably a new intersection with Fidel Castro Avenue and Kim Jun Il Court.


Pathetic. These people are our enemies. Glad the State Department and CIA are going to be cleaned of traitorous Libs that pander to France and the U.N.
