RF Band Attribution - 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.

Hello Everybody,

Does anybody know where I could find a list of the applications at the different frequencies?
Frequency !!!! Applications

Thank you

Hi JM. We're going to need a little more detail on what you're looking for. Listing applications from DC-light could take up a lot of space. :wink:

Last autumn I picked up at the Microwaves Conference in Paris quite a useful desk-top horse-blanket from the magazine "RFDesign" that gives quite a useful spectrum summary from 30MHz thru 300GHz.

It is about A1 paper size, so it needs some real estate.

Could be they still publish this.

Hi Guys,
Thank you for your respons.... :D
Yes Maxwell I should have specified the frequencies :oops: ... I was thinking of RF frequencies going from 0.5GHz to 220GHz... With an emphasis of what is going on in the industry between 20GHz and 100GHz..
I am back from MTT and they were talk on 60GHz library wireless... 4G at 4GHz..
The Defense use I think frequencies around 26GHz and 35GHz...
I was wondering if anybody knew of a web page or publication listing all of those frequencies and applications...

Thank you for all your help...

PS: nubbage I will try to have a look at this RFDESIGN mag. Thanks

Greetings JM:

Here are PDF documents that have the frequency allocation charts mentioned in another post by nubbage. Most of the wall charts offered by magazines and vendors are derivaties of these charts.

U.S. Radio Frequency Allocations - 30 MHz to 300 GHz

Selected European Radio Frequency Allocations
30 MHz to 300 GHz

Text versions of the tables are available here:

Is this what you are looking for?

dear Kirt,

:shock: ..... Impressive.
Thank you for the reponse, it was exactly what I was looking for....
I have to say, I am really impress with the number of commercial and other applications above 30GHz... Because I don't find the avalaibility of components above 30GHz either easy or cheap....

PS: I love the "Disruptive" in the Web Site Title.. :D
