Buy components when you are a Ham Radio ? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi Guillaume!

Yes finding components for our homeprojects can be really hard! Some RF-components can be found at Barend; http://www.xs4all.nl/~barendh/Indexeng.htm
(Hope it's ok to put a link at the forum, :roll: )

Hope this helps!

I hope it is not too late. Please check www.digikey.com, www.mouser.com and www.jameco.com. I use these sites for many years and they work well. Minicircuits is very expensive and almost always you can find your parts for smaller price.

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
