August 1962 Electronics World

August 1962 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

This electronics-themed crossword puzzle was published in the August 1962 issue of Electronic World. Crosswords were a fairly standard feature in magazines up through the late last century. Keeping with tradition , every week (usually) I create an engineering-themed crossword puzzle that uses a hand-selected collection of a couple thousand words and clues from a dictionary I built over the last 20 years. Unlike most crosswords seen in technical and hobby publications, RF Cafe crosswords contain only relevant words - never filling in with the names of movie stars, obscure countries, or portmanteaus relating to social oddities.

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
