Buy components when you are a Ham Radio ? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hi Guillaume!

Yes finding components for our homeprojects can be really hard! Some RF-components can be found at Barend; http://www.xs4all.nl/~barendh/Indexeng.htm
(Hope it's ok to put a link at the forum, :roll: )

Hope this helps!

I hope it is not too late. Please check www.digikey.com, www.mouser.com and www.jameco.com. I use these sites for many years and they work well. Minicircuits is very expensive and almost always you can find your parts for smaller price.
