    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...

RF Band Attribution - 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.

Hi JM. We're going to need a little more detail on what you're looking for. Listing applications from DC-light could take up a lot of space. :wink:

Last autumn I picked up at the Microwaves Conference in Paris quite a useful desk-top horse-blanket from the magazine "RFDesign" that gives quite a useful spectrum summary from 30MHz thru 300GHz.

It is about A1 paper size, so it needs some real estate.

Could be they still publish this.

Hi Guys,
Thank you for your respons.... :D
Yes Maxwell I should have specified the frequencies :oops: ... I was thinking of RF frequencies going from 0.5GHz to 220GHz... With an emphasis of what is going on in the industry between 20GHz and 100GHz..
I am back from MTT and they were talk on 60GHz library wireless... 4G at 4GHz..
The Defense use I think frequencies around 26GHz and 35GHz...
I was wondering if anybody knew of a web page or publication listing all of those frequencies and applications...

Thank you for all your help...

PS: nubbage I will try to have a look at this RFDESIGN mag. Thanks

Greetings JM:

Here are PDF documents that have the frequency allocation charts mentioned in another post by nubbage. Most of the wall charts offered by magazines and vendors are derivaties of these charts.

U.S. Radio Frequency Allocations - 30 MHz to 300 GHz

Selected European Radio Frequency Allocations
30 MHz to 300 GHz

Text versions of the tables are available here:

Is this what you are looking for?

dear Kirt,

:shock: ..... Impressive.
Thank you for the reponse, it was exactly what I was looking for....
I have to say, I am really impress with the number of commercial and other applications above 30GHz... Because I don't find the avalaibility of components above 30GHz either easy or cheap....

PS: I love the "Disruptive" in the Web Site Title.. :D
