May 1967 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 crossword puzzle appeared in the May 1967 edition of Electronics World. If you happen to be an avid cruciverbalist as am I, then you might want to try a few of the RF and microwave engineering themed crosswords that I have been publishing weekly for two decades. Unlike the RF Cafe crossword puzzles which contain only words and clues related to science and engineering, these ones which appeared in various electronics magazine sometimes use a common word to fill in where needed.
