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...

Kerry's Swift Boat Redux - 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.

Yesterday JFK arrived at the DNC convention center on a water taxi to relive his Vitenam days*.

By his own admission**, the last time he was greeted on the river bank by that many civilians, he opened fire on them.

According to official records, Kerry ran his swift boat aground to chase down a lone wounded sniper and killed him while he was cowering behind a hut. He personally pulled the trigger that ended a man's life, one he could have taken prisoner.

What a hero.


* Kerry actually spent a little over 3 months in a combat zone, during which time he accumulated 3 Purple Hearts and a Silver and Bronze Star. Oh, and he was sure to take along a camera to re-enact his moments of heroism days after they took place.

** Those video clips of him admitting to committing war crimes, including shooting civilians and burning villages, are abundantly available

Really, Kerry was in Vietnam? I never knew that. Why doesn't he talk about it? :wink:
