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 ...

Amphenol has been around since 1932, when founder Arthur Schmitt offered sockets for vacuum tubes. Now headquartered in Wallingford, CT, the company began life in Chicago, Illinois. Amphenol was a major supplier of coaxial cable in the days when most of the cable Americans used was produced in the country. Alpha Wire, Amphenol, Carol Cable (now part of General Cable), and General Cable are the names that come to mind that were around in the 1970s when I entered the radio-electronics realm. The radar system I worked on in the USAF, and all of the defense electronics electronics systems I worked on as a technician and engineer, used those four brands. Today, of course, there is a seemingly unlimited number of coaxial cable suppliers, many of which produce sub-standard products that do not hold up under even typical operational environments. Caveat emptor.
Amphenol's government approved "Coax" and "Twinax" R-G Cables today represent the maximum in types available from a single manufacturer - a definite advantage. There is usually a size for every normal requirement. But "special" needs too are promptly met. They embody the same widely experienced engineering, high quality materials and dependable production that have made Amphenol products famous the world over. And you can have immediate delivery on most Amphenol Cable types. So depend on Amphenol for any high frequency cable requirements. Catalog Section D brings you detailed technical data and helpful illustrations.
