RF Cafe Engineering Book Giveaways
(Archive Page 1)

Each month I select someone to receive a free book from those graciously provided by Artech House and Cambridge University Press. They are often books I have used to create quizzes.

How to enter? Either buy one of my inexpensive software offerings or send me an e-mail. I will throw your name in an electronic "hat" (an Excel spreadsheet with a random number selection). A winner will be selected once a good number of entries have been received.

The first give-away was a set of more than 25 electronic themed wall charts. Here is the current list of available prizes to choose from.
