Broadcast Engineering Resources

I get a lot of calls here at RF Cafe headquarters, and believe it or not a couple each year are from people looking to start a radio station - often in some third-world location. It motivated me to create this page of resources that I can direct them to for assistance.

Most people are looking for used equipment either for a new installation or to replace failed equipment in  an existing installation.




NOTICE: Most search engines do a really good job of locating useful data if your search terms are well thought out, so rather than me supposing I know what you are looking for, I have provided a Search box  in the upper-left page border for you to use. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my Advertising information page. Thank you.
