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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

My Hobby Website:
Does your company make products that RF Cafe visitors use, like RF and microwave filters, amplifiers, couplers, mixers, etc., simulation software, test equipment, or provide design services, educational material, etc? If so and you are in the habit of publishing Press Releases (aka Product Update, Product Announcement, etc.), you are welcome to send them to me for consideration for posting on RF Cafe. With typically 6,000 to 9,000 website visitors each weekday, the exposure can be pretty good. A quick scan of the current RF Cafe homepage will likely turn up a couple examples of the abbreviated versions that go on the homepage and link to the main page.
I will create a separate page for your material and also post a notice on the homepage. Please do not send a one-sentence statement and expect me to create the Press Release for you - eeez not my yob ;-) The more eye-catching your material, the better chance you have of attracting potential customers.
My opinion of an ideal product announcement is one which has a nice photo of your item, a verbose description of its main features and applications, and if applicable, a plot of electrical performance. Very important is a hyperlink that goes directly to the page on your website where the visitor can get more information. Please also provide contact information that includes name, phone number, and e-mail of someone there that can field questions and/or take orders.
Press releases are typically less flashy and contain financial reports, new or updated contracts, production shipments, employee hiring or promotion, company awards, plans for attendance at trade shows, company acquisitions, etc. A relevant photo or artwork is a big asset with any of these formats as well.
Job openings are also welcome. I have a separate engineering jobs section for tracking available positions. Please note that I only post job openings for direct hire companies - no independent recruiter or hiring agency requests, please.
Material will be posted - or not - entirely at my discretion, depending on whether I believe it will be useful to RF Cafe visitors.
