RF Cafe Engineering Book Giveaway
(Archive Page 2)

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 from which to choose.

Please see the RF Cafe Book Giveaway Drawing page for available books and monthly winners after May 2015.
