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...

FCC RELEASES 2011 INTERNATIONAL TRAFFIC DATA

Washington, D.C. - The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today released an  annual report entitled 2011 International Telecommunications Data regarding international message telephone, private line and miscellaneous services between the United States and other countries. Commission staff has prepared a graphical snapshot of this 2011 data, available at http://fcc.github.io/calltraffic/traffic2011.html. For a snapshot of how international traffic has changed over the last ten years, staff has prepared a depiction of international traffic data in a graphical interface, available at http://fcc.github.io/calltraffic/trafficbyyear.html.
