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 schedule.
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.
