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 ...

My Hobby Website:
Website contributor Joe Cahak* reminded me of the Hewlett Packard Archive website that is absolutely the go-to source for vintage HP documents. According to the site's owner, Glenn Robb, there are more than 35,000 pages of Hewlett Packard catalogs, Bench Briefs, product manuals, service notes, Watt's Current, price lists, periodicals (Measure and Insight magazines), journals, presentations, HP Test and Measurement News, seminars, application notes, and much more. Items like seminar notes in the pre-Internet days could usually only be gotten by attendees of the events. Fortunately, thanks to a huge community of supporters, a large number of similar documents have been donated for scanning and posting. If you have any qualifying HP documentation in your stack of stuff that is not listed on the Hewlett Packard Archive, please do us all a favor and get a copy of it (scanned or hard copy) to Mr. Robb.
