I am an RF Designer.  I have currently developed some PCB based designs that 
are quite unique.  They could be developed on anything from FR4 to alumina.  
These designs are RF components such as mixers and multipliers.  I would like 
to pursue development and manufacturing on my own, but would like help.  
Anybody interested?

I consider myself a craftsman. Sometimes, I quit tracking hours, and
concentrate on the placement and routing in order to give all my attention
to the final product, and not have to worry about if I'm overcharging. It
seems to make a difference with my customers. They see the quality in the
designs they receive. I bet they don't get that kind of service from the
offshore shops.
