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...

Sunnyvale, CA, June 7, 2011 -
AlphiMAX Inc. releases version 220.127.116.11 with
updates to its on demand high resolution terrain and land cover. The new version of the Point-To-Point Estimator
enhances the Advanced package to support estimations with high resolution terrain and land cover over the whole
world and is still provided for FREE.
By giving our users the ability to readily take into account such
information on a world-wide scale,
makes the planning process much faster and much less costly.
Users that pre-order the package receive 100
FREE credits to be used after the package is officially released. Login to the web site and then click on the link
to the Advanced package at the bottom of the page; You will be offered the option to pre-order the package. If you
decide to forfeit the offer please hit "no thanks".
"Adding seamless global land cover information to the
estimation process had its challenges and is an important step which will improve the accuracy of users'
estimations and would save them time and money" said Rafi Cohen of AlphiMAX.
"AlphiMAX' Point to Point
Estimator is just a perfect tool. Making high resolution terrain available to us, removed a lot of doubt during
the pre planning process, saving us time and money." Said Mr. Urbanek Manuel, Funknetz' CEO. "Automatically
getting the land cover information as part of the path analysis without the need to invest the time and money
involved in buying and formatting such data is a tremendous help. Moreover the ability given to Express users to
click on the path profile and synchronize it to a three dimensional map accelerates the analysis process of
obstructions and gives us easy ways to go around them, and is definitely worth the monthly payment. Setting up a
Paypal account and subscribing to a hassle free, automatic payment service was easier than I thought since Paypal
accepts all payment methods."
Land cover information is now made
available world wide. The resolution of the terrain and land cover information may vary by locations. We encourage
our users to let us know about better sources of information that may be used in their area. Please use the "New
feature request" category on
this page and submit the relevant link.
Also, "Report Level 1" is now available as part of the Easy
mode category. This feature allows you to view and print a report with your link path profile and link budget
A new menu with access to account information, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and step-by-step
instructions is located at the top of the tool.
