July 1963 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 a 1963 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 15 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.
