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...

Are Carbon Nanotubes the Next Asbestos? Videos for Engineers
York City's David Brooks, owner of "Just Bulbs," had his shop featured in the November 2010 edition of IEEE
Spectrum. Mr. Brooks is a recovering lawyer who gave up the vice many years ago to assume command of his
family's business. Brooks' father started by peddling light bulbs during WWII when maintaining bulbs in the Empire
State Building. This video was made to accompany the original article, "Last
Hurrah for Banned Bulbs," which is on the IEEE Xplore website (now the IEEE
now requires an account for access). Almost every imaginable kind of bulb is available there - about 45,000
different types crammed into a 1,000 sq. ft. shop. It is your #1 shopping spot for bulbs in vintage equipment like
projectors or appliances. Expect to pay a couple hundred dollars for really hard to find bulbs. Just Bulbs has
plenty of those incandescent bulbs that Thomas Edison plotted to destroy the earth with, but it also stocks all
manner of modern technology like fluorescent and LED bulbs. I would not want to pay his electric bill.
