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 Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Popular Electronics was published from October 1954 through April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged. See all articles from Popular Electronics.

This crossword puzzle is a little trickier than some because it uses abbreviations rather than full words. Not everyone uses the same abbreviation, so some answers are a bit more subjective. For instance, many people abbreviate the word 'transformer' as 'xfmr,' while others use 'trans' or 'trr' (I use xfmr). Where you really have to be careful, though, is with evolutional changes in terminology as is the case for frequency units, where 'cps' was most often used in 1958 rather than today's 'Hz." Enjoy.
