About RF Cafe™


private messaging - 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

Hi Kirt,

Could you please enable private messaging on the forum? The spambots seem to be gone now, and I'd rather not commit the internet-crime of reviving old posts in thanking people. :)

Kind regards,

Greetings Charl:

OK, you convinced me. Private messaging has been enabled on a trial basis. Since the vast majority of the spam postings have been stopped with the addition of the math question during registration, maybe it is safe to try now.

To begin with, the mailbox size is set to 25 messages of storage as a safety measure to prevent the possibility of overwhelming the forum database with e-mail flooding. If all goes well, I'll increase the settings.

If you or anyone else hits a limits on your mailbox, please let me know.

Thanks for the suggestion :smt023
