    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...

Capital and Venture Capital

These companies are either providing or are seeking capital, venture capital, and advisory services for technology based companies. Even during down times there are still people with money looking to fund "the next big thing." It will probably never again be like the heydays of the late 1990s tech boom, where money appeared from nowhere literally in the form of stock market values, but some of the biggest success stories came out of the Depression Era (IBM, for example).
