April 1964 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

This vacuum tube shaped crossword puzzle appeared in the April 1964 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. It won't take you more than a couple minutes to complete - just a short trip, with a pencil, to the John ;-)  Like with all my custom-made RF Cafe Crossword Puzzles, every clue and word in this crossword by Stephen Nelson has an application to electronics technology. Unlike with my crosswords, the across/down grid is very simple with few groups of adjacent empty squares. That makes creation an easier task, especially when your word selection list is constrained to a particular topic. Still, it's a good puzzle. Have fun.
