December 2008 Winners List - 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.

Hey Kirt thanks for doing this. I haven't won anything yet, but did buy your RF Workbook a year ago. It's an amazing value for $35 (?)

You really should charge a lot more 'cause it saved me a few days of inventing my own. I think you might sell a lot more if you jacked up prices significantly. You are probably suffering from the old problem of people figuring the product must be inferior if the price is so low. My bet is that your sales would go way up if you changed the price to at least $100.

Hell, I'd charge $250. Figure $50/hour of an engineer's time, so that's only 5 hours. I couldn't even look up all the formulas in that amount of time.

Also are you nuts for giving away the Open Office version of it? You're killing yourself, man.

Keep up the great work!
