Given that this Circuitry Crossword was created at the peak of the post-war television popularity wave, it is no surprise that the main focus is on TV-related terms. Still, most people who lived during the era of "real" television sets with cathode ray tubes (CRTs), will probably have no problem completing it successfully. If you have ever adjusted the horizontal and vertical hold controls on a TV, you're in the club. After nearly two decades with LCD computer and television displays, the days of less than perfect images are fading like an over-the-air broadcast on a stormy day. Unlike the time it took me days to figure out that two heavy speakers sitting on a shelf over top of my CRT computer monitor was causing a weird distortion in the picture, I can sit anything next to my LCD monitor with no effect. I had replaced a 15" CRT monitor with a 19" (considered huge at the time) CRT, which placed the picture tube very close to the speaker magnets. I was on the verge of returning the monitor before figuring out the cause.

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 ...
