    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...

Look on eBay for Memorabilia from Your Military Unit

If you are getting nostalgic in your old age and want to reclaim some of your past military duty history, one possible venue is eBay. A fellow USAF radar shop technician recently wrote to ask if I would be willing to part with one of my 5th Combat Communications Group (aka 5th Mob) patches as displayed on my web page dedicated to the radar shop at Robins AFB, Georgia. Since I only have one of each patch, I decided to look on eBay to see what might be available, although admittedly with little expectation that any of the patches would be show up. To my surprise, not only were patches available, but other kinds of paraphernalia like basketball team jerseys (I didn't know the 5th Mob had one), coffee cups, pens, hats, and other stuff. I had no idea that there was an Association of Old Crows (AOC) patch for Robins Air Force Base.

If I can find gear from my unit, then there is a good chance you will be able to find gear from yours as well. If there doesn't happen to be anything listed when you first search, try again in a few days because sooner or later whatever you want will probably show up. Just about everything eventually shows up on eBay. What I do if I really want a particular item that is not listed when I look - whether it be for vintage model building items, radios, magazines, etc. - is use the Saved Search function whereby eBay will send me an e-mail when/if an item matching my keywords comes up for auction (or a direct sale).

Here are a few of the items I located on eBay related to the 5CCG and/or Robins AFB. Unless you happen to see this page within a few days of its posting, chances are they will be gone (click on thumbnails).
