RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

Heathkit Resurrection in the Works - Again?

Heathkit Resurrection in the Works, Again? - RF CafeI saw a headline on EDN about Heathkit being back - again. They reappeared a couple years ago with a few small build-it-yourself electronics kits, but that quickly died out. I immediately went to the Heathkit website and saw its sole content, the U.S. postage stamp with Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) speaking his famous quote, "Just say the report of my death has been grossly exaggerated." Pretty clever. There are no hyperlinks, just the stamp, copyright info, and the Heathkit logo. The EDN article had a link to an online survey asking people what they want to see in the way of kits. In case you don't know the origin of the Twain quote, here is Bartleby's attribution: "In 1897, Twain was living in London where a cousin, Dr. Jim Clemens, fell ill. The newspapers, believing Twain was near death, sent reporters to investigate. Twain made his remark when the correspondent for the Evening Sun told him his death had been reported in New York, and asked what he should cable in reply." (Bartleby, of "I would prefer not to." fame, was the scrivener in Melville's eponymous story)
