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...

Q-Par Angus Press Release - December 7, 2011
Q-Par Angus Announces Ultra-Wideband 0.8 - 40 GHz Omni-Directional Antenna
Q-par Angus Limited, a microwave antenna and development company based in
Leominster, UK, is pleased to announce the launch of a new compact ultra-wideband 0.8 – 40 GHz Omni-directional
antenna, intended for Ultra Wideband (UWB) applications including communications, surveillance and Electronic
Warfare. The 100 mm diameter antenna is Vertically Polarised with Azimuth ripple typically <+/- 1 dB on horizon.
thorough development and testing, this new antenna is a welcome addition to Q-par's range of Omni-directional
antennas. These currently provide wideband performance up to 42.5 GHz, either vertically or slant polarised. The
new UWB antenna will allow Q-par's customers to replace multiple antennas across the bandwidth with one antenna,
resulting in reduced costs, set up times, and helping to meet critical weight and space requirements, particularly
in airborne applications.
Robert Lowther, Q-par Angus Sales and Marketing Manager says, “We are happy to
have developed such an excellent ultra wideband Omni-directional antenna that reinforces our position as a
leading, innovative microwave antenna company. The benefits offered by this new antenna should prove attractive to
our global customers and sustain the product for the foreseeable future.”
