    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...

NASA Tech Briefs a Very Useful Electronics News Resource

NASA Tech Briefs a Very Useful Electronics News Resource - RF CafeAs far back as the mid 1980s, I remember going to the technical library at the Westinghouse Electric Oceanic Division in Annapolis, Maryland to read the latest copy of NASA Tech Briefs. During and after doing a four-year stint in the U.S. Air Force as an air traffic control radar technician, I was voraciously consumed all the information I could obtain on electronics, mechanics, aerodynamics, astrodynamics, etc., and was determined to earn an electrical engineering degree. In the pre-Internet days, acquiring such material required finagling a subscription from the trade magazines (EDN, Microwave Journal, RF Design, etc.) or borrowing a copy from a co-worker or the library. Purchasing a subscription was out of the question on my budget.

Electric Field Quantitative Measurement System and Method - RF CafeNow, as then, every edition of NASA Tech Briefs is chock full of great news bits on all the aforementioned topics - and more. It is one of the many magazines that I scan cover-to-cover every month, and end up reading many of the stories. Here are a few of the items in the January 2017 issue that are worthy of homepage news postings on RF Cafe:
