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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Dave Harbaugh drew the semi-regular "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh" series of comic strips in Popular Electronics. His themes were always in the situational comedy style of the day where Ham operators were depicted as victims of their own obsession with amateur radio, their wives' lack of an equal obsession with amateur radio, or being at the mercy of some well-meaning but ignorant neighbor, police officer, store clerk, or other such individual. This particular comic has an on-the-scene TV anchorman making KN3OB's life heck. I colored the first panel.
