DF typically means "D' F*ck?", which is a shortened version of WTF (What The F*ck?). (NB: The D sound imitates the word "The", and the "What" is omitted altogether.)

DF expresses surprise or shock, typically after receiving news or experiencing an event.

DF can also stand for "Direction Finding", which is a technique for locating a radio transmitter. It usually involves two or more sensors providing line-bearings towards the transmitter. The intersection of these line-bearings is the transmitter's location.
