I want to thank everyone for supporting
RF Cafe over the years. Watching the daily visitor
count grow and gaining the financial support of
a number of vendors has been quite rewarding, particularly
in a medium (the Internet) where typically no money
is made. RF Cafe is a long way from allowing me
to quit my day job, but it does help a little in
paying the bills (especially important with two
kids in college).
As anyone who has called
during the day knows, my wife, Melanie, is home
“taking care of business” while I’m doing the engineer
thing at work. She typically puts in at least four
hours a day servicing requests for resume postings,
vendor listings, sending out software, verifying/correcting
hyperlinks on all the pages (a never-ending job)
and various sundry other chores. My work on the
website in the evening and weekends usually just
about fills out the equivalent of a fulltime work
If you would, please help us to
keep RF Cafe as one of the most oft-visited engineering
websites by continuing to use our resources daily,
and by encouraging your colleagues to do the same.
An honorable mention in newsletters, magazine article
submissions, and social events can really help out.
Of course, you are greatly encouraged to submit
suggestions, technical articles, humorous engineering
material, events for our calendar, vendor listings,
job openings, or any other relevant item for posting
on the site. Participation in these forums is a
tremendous help, also.
The purchase of useful
books through Amazon.com and ordering some of the
low-priced software RF Cafe offers is a boost to
the bottom line.
Visiting our advertisers'
websites and using their products and services helps
to keep them supporting the site as well. Hyperlinks
from the 30x100 pixel logos will take you directly
to their websites.
Thanks again for your
loyal patronage. We hope to be around for a long
time to serve you.
