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 Globalnet still a haven for America-bashers - 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.

Yow, I haven't been over to the RF Globalnet forums in quite a while because of the overwhelming Antiamerican tone of the Just for Fun board. There is nothing but Bush-basing and slamming of the U.S.A. I did not see a single attempt today by anyone there to defend this country. That was common a year or so ago when I used to read it, and stopped out of disgust.

Is VerticalMarket a foreign-owned conglomerate? I'm surprised their advertisers keep supporting them - probably don't know what's being said on thier forums.

At least here on RF Cafe the comments are generally civil. I don't know whether Kirt cleans the boards of offensive stuff or not. Kirt, do you?

Greetings VSWR:

I have only deleted posts a few times, all because they were spam subjects like mortgage or vitamin offers. I might have changed a dirty word or two somewhere along the line, without altering the context.

This is not a pure 2nd Amendment forum, so censorship will occur at my discretion. :-D

Well, when you are standing on the top of pedestal it is only natural that people will try and knock you down. The United States is the greatest country on the planet, we have the highest standard of living, lead the world in "ALL" technologies, while many countries in Europe and North America maintane tiny defense budgets knowing that the United States will come to their defense ( As we have done many times) if warranted. If we adopted an isolationist policy today, the the world would start bashing us because we are not accepting our responsibility in the world. Either way we lose in the realm of public opinion. As a US citizen I know that this country has not always made the right decisions, but the good out weighs the bad. Many americans have sacrificed their lives for this country and other countries. I have served this country, and I am proud of this country and as far as I am concerned that all that counts.
