Good and Bad Microwaves! - 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.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews

OK - I lifted this from another group, but its about microwaves, and thats our thing is it not?

2) My favorite though, and I kid you not, was a small crystal approx. 3/4 inch diameter that you place in your microwave oven (in the corner). It's purpose is to make your food taste better and healthier by removing the bad microwaves and leaving the good microwaves. It was specifically designed to get those bad microwaves, which must have been very difficult. I've only seen a few microwaves I didn't like.


Oh Wow! 8)

Sounds like something from the Home Shopping Network. What a bunch of idiots people are that buy stuff from those channels. I wish I could come up with junk to sell the ample morons out there. I'd glady take their money.

However, my Feng Xwei adviser recommends type 7350 microwaves, because 3 is a number of special significance.
