Buy components when you are a Ham Radio ? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi Guillaume!

Yes finding components for our homeprojects can be really hard! Some RF-components can be found at Barend; http://www.xs4all.nl/~barendh/Indexeng.htm
(Hope it's ok to put a link at the forum, :roll: )

Hope this helps!

I hope it is not too late. Please check www.digikey.com, www.mouser.com and www.jameco.com. I use these sites for many years and they work well. Minicircuits is very expensive and almost always you can find your parts for smaller price.
