Important Information - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues. Please visit the new and improved RF Cafe Forums that were created in September of 2015. Unlike with the old forums where users registered individually, the new forums use a common User Name and Password so anyone can post without needing to create an account. Please find the current User Name and Password on the RF Cafe homepage. Thanks for your participation.

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

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews
-- Miscellany

These polls are not considered scientific because no attempt is made to control voting.

Registration is not required, since even the same user can theoretically register under multiple names and skew results. The database does try to keep track of voting to prevent multiple entries from a single user. Just emptying your cookie cache does not let you vote again on the same poll.

Participation in the polls is pretty low when sign-in is forced, because it seems most people do not want to go to the trouble of registering, and that's OK. Think of these polls as more of a "finger in the wind" to see which way it's blowing.

An archive of the past RF Cafe Polls can be found here:

Thanks for your participation, and be sure to tell you friends to vote.
