About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024
    Kirt Blattenberger,


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...

Massey University Engineering Crossword Puzzle

This week's crossword puzzle was created to highlight a specific engineering school located in the southern hemisphere. Clues with an asterisk (*) next to them are related directly to the honored school. All of the rest of the clues and words are pulled from a hand-built dictionary of people, places, things, and actions that pertain to the topics of science, engineering, mathematics, physics, astronomy, etc. You will never find the name of a fashion designer, Prime Time television show, or numbnut celebrity. Enjoy!
