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.
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,
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.
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
Kirt & Melanie
