Can anyone recommed a good (and inexpensive) program for doing RF system design work? I looked at an eval version of SysCalc, but it looks a little pricey for what you get. Anything else out there? Anyone have a used copy of SysCalc to sell for a couple hundred bucks?

Dear troy,

Have you tried the RFcafe-Calculator-Workbook?

If you need free system simulators you can try QUCs. You can also use appcad. Thanks.

Best Regards,

You would be amazed what you can do with Excel and VBA :-)

except for complex math (a+jb)*(x+jy)
For serious work with field calculations you need Mathcad or Fortran
