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 ...

My Hobby Website:
A huge part of the multi-trillion dollar debt that we are having foisted upon us (and saddling our great-grandchildren with) will be going toward research and development, manufacturing, construction, and maintenance of clean energy sources like wind turbine generators, solar arrays, ocean wave and tidal generators, geothermal, and other types of generators. Radically new technologies like energy harvesting (recovering wasted energy of motion like in vehicular braking, suspension system damping, even body motions) are also becoming mainstream.
It is a brave new world with lots of opportunity. This is a chance for smart entrepreneurs to get back some of their tax money in the form of research grants. Check out the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants website. Please cut me in for some consulting business out of appreciation for my tip ;-)
