Test/Measurement Books - 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.

Good day.

I would do a search on Agilent, Tektronix, Fluke, etc. websites. Most test equipment manufacturers have some good application notes/product notes about how certain things are tested.

Also you can check out Test & Measurement magazine. Sometimes they have some articles on how to test things.

Best of luck.

I have been an RF test engr for over 20 years and have bought many books on RF test only to find that they were a waste of money. The best source to learn RF testing is from the major players in the business - Agilent, Anritsu, etc. Agilent has an excellent series on Spectrum Analyzers - AN-150 series and the AN-1449 series on Power measurement. Anrtisu also has excellent app notes on RF theory and measurement. Other good sources are RF Design, Microwaves&RF and Test & Measurement magazines. I have learned more RF theory and about how to make RF measurements from these sources then from any text book I had EVER bought.

Good Luck
