September 1965 Electronics World

September 1965 Electronics World

September 1965 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.

On nearly every Sunday for the past two decades, out of a personal penchant for working crossword puzzles, I have created and posted a custom crossword puzzle with a technical theme. Various kinds of magazines, including Radio News, Popular Electronics, etc., occasionally published crosswords, so when I run across them, I post them here on RF Cafe. This one appeared in a 1965 issue of Electronics World. Usually, the magazine crossword puzzles have mostly words and clues relevant to the magazine's theme, but then backfill with any word that will work. William Shippee did a pretty good job with this one with only a couple off-topic words.
