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...

RF Cafe University"Factoids," "Kirt's Cogitations," and "Tech Topics Smorgasbord" are all manifestations of my rantings on various subjects relevant (usually) to the overall RF Cafe theme. All may be accessed on these pages:

Oh, to Be a Turtle (...and not the Mutant Ninja type, either)

Feeling old? You wouldn't be if you were a Blanding's turtle -- they don't senesce, that is, their cells never experience aging. Blanding's turtles expire only from infectious diseases or physical trauma (like getting run over by a car). Their hearts, lungs and other organs are as fresh at 50 as they were at 5, and females become more fertile with age -- unlike almost all other animal life forms. A researcher in Michigan named Justin Congdon has been studying the critters for more than 30 years in hopes of discovering the secret of their youth. The job is far from glamorous but very important for mankind according to Justin, who, when hearing the media's infatuation with the murder in Florida of fashion designer Gianni Versace, remarked, "Can you believe that? The world mourns for the death of a guy who sews pants?"
