March 13-14 Forum Downtime - 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
-- Swap Shop
-- Systems
-- Test & Measurement
-- Webmaster

Greetings:

As you probably noticed, the Forum was not working properly for the last 20 hours or so. I'm not sure how, but a couple of the files got corrupted. The good news is that they have been repaired and all is well again.

Thanks for your patience, and happy posting!!!!

Greetings:

An interesting result of the forum being down for almost a day is that since it has been back up and running again, the number of spam registrations and posts has decreased significantly. All I can figure is that the software bots and the heroin junkies that manually perform the registration (which requires visual confirmation of a code) must hit a seemingly dead forum and remove it from their lists. Maybe it would be a good strategy to shut the form off for a few hours once a month or so. I'll have to do a little Web research on the topic to see if there is any validity to my theory, or if it is merely a coincidence.
