About RF Cafe

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...

Welcome to the new T&M forum - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio

-- Antennas

-- CAE, CAD, & Software

-- Circuits & Components

-- Employment & Interviews

-- Systems

-- Test & Measurement

Greetings:

I have noticed that a lot of questions are asked about T&M issues. Many times the topics do not comfortable fit into any of the other forum headings, so now we have this forum specifically for T&M.

As with design, there are a lot of "tricks of the trade" regarding testing methods, so your contributions to the knowledge base will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Kirt:

Good to see a forum devoted to RF testing. This is a subject close to my heart, both at home and at work. We will try to monitor regularly and comment when appropriate. Some of the members may be interested in the papers related to RF testing on our company website, www.ztechnology.com.

Greetings Guy:

You are welcome and encouraged to post any bits of wisdom on testing. I have a link to the Z Technology website on the Test Methodology Website page on RF Cafe. The topic highlighted there is "Antenna Selection & Use for Outdoor Field Testing."

You might want to try beginning a new topic on this forum to offer to field questions about making outdoor measurements.
