    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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

The American Radiator Delay League is a national non-professional association of radiator delayers, bonded for the more effective delaying of hot-water and steam radiators as may be found from time to time to be in the public interest, convenience or necessity; to advance the art of delaying radiators; for the maintenance of radiator fraternalism and a high standard of delaying amongst radiator delay-men; and to keep the public delayed-radiator conscious as may promote more and better delays to bigger and better radiators .

"Of, by and for" the delayer, it numbs within its ranks practically every worth-while amateur delayer who ever successfully delayed a radiator, and has a history of glorious achievement as the radiator-bearer amongst delayed amateurs.

Inquiries regarding membership are solicited. Ownership of one's own radiators is not a perquisite, but a bona-fide interest in delaying same is an exquisite qualification. Address all correspondence to the Chief Pipe-Bender at Omponpanoosuck.
