    Kirt's Cogitations™ (aka Factoids) Archive

    RF Cafe University"Factoids," "Kirt's Cogitations," and "Tech Topics Smorgasbord" are all manifestations of my rantings on various subjects relevant (usually) to the overall RF Cafe theme. All may be accessed on these pages:

     1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | 31 | 32 | 33 | 34 | 35 | 36

    Kirt's Cogitations Archive (formerly known as Factoids) - RF CafeCog·i·ta·tion [koj-i-tey'-shun] – noun: Concerted thought or reflection; meditation; contemplation.

    Kirt ['kərt ] – proper noun: RF Cafe webmaster.

    These articles were originally known as 'Factoids,' but the title was changed because of the multiple (and sometimes unflattering) definition of the word.

    Note: There is also a huge collection of my topical 'Smorgasbord' writings that might interest you500彩票手机快三在线投注 as well.

    These original Kirt's Cogitations™ may be reproduced (no more than 5, please) provided proper credit is given to me, Kirt Blattenberger.

    About RF Cafe
    Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster
    500彩票手机快三在线投注: 1996 - 2024
    Webmaster:
        Kirt Blattenberger,
        BSEE - KB3UON

    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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

    All trademarks, copyrights, patents, and other rights of ownership to images and text used on the RF Cafe website are hereby acknowledged.
