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 ...

Ransom Olds' Birthplace Now a NAPA Auto Parts Store

I receive very little feedback overall on RF Cafe content. Surprisingly, though, the 'Day in History' feature on the homepage generates the most e-mails either due to a typo by me or someone commenting on a particular item. It's nice to know they're read. Website visitor Steve Gilbert just wrote regarding Oldsmobile founder Ransom E. Olds' entry from August 26. Says Steve, "Ransom Olds was born just a few blocks away from where your friends at Tegam have their business located in Geneva, Ohio. Fittingly the site of Ransom Olds' birthplace is today an auto parts store."

Ransom E. Olds Historical Marker - RF Cafe

A quick Google search turned up a historical marker located on Old's property, and it gave the GPS coordinates. Plugging those into Google Maps placed me right at the spot, and then a Street View look produced the photo shown above the historic marker. Sure enough, there is a NAPA Auto Parts store there now, so as Steve says, it is definitely fitting if not also ironic (intentionally or coincidentally).

Oldsmobile, BTW, went out of business in 2004. Government Motors still maintains the Oldsmobile.com website even though the product line has been gone for over a decade.
