Please put your language skills in your CV - 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.

Did you see the "feedback" section of the latest (Feb 2006) edition of MW&RF? Mini-Circuits took the editors of the Product Data Directory (PDD) to the woodshed for a lick'n for omitting them in the printed version. I can only imagine the grief they doled out in the not-so-public venue.

Since Mini-Circuits basically owns all the major RF magazines (RF Design, High Frequency Electronics, Microwaves & RF, etc.), because of the domination of advertising, they must really have been torqued for being dissed by MW&RF.

That's the problem with allowing yourself to be sold out too much to any one entity. It's true for many things, including employers.

Yeah, saw it. I think MCL is the 800-pound gorilla in the RF industry. From what I hear they always get their way. Goota say I wish I owned them. Sure wouldn't want out operate out of NYC though.
