New PHPBB3 Software Now Running - 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

I finally got around to installing the new version of the PHPBB forum software. It promises to be a big improvement once I complete all the configuration processes. While that is occurring (and after), you will be able to participate using your existing user name and password.

The old PHPBB2 forum has been disabled in order to prevent new posts being made and getting lost there.

Thanks for your participation!

After installing the PHPBB 3.0.4 software upgrade, I did not re-implement the additional math question in the registration page to thwart web bots from auto registering and posting crap. In the last couple weeks, there have been an increasing number of bot posts, particularly in the Circuits forum. Once a bot successfully defeats the visual code test, it has free reign on the forum.

So, over the weekend, I added the math question back to the registration form.

If you have any problem with registration, please send me an e-mail and I will take care of it for you. Thanks for visiting.
