RF Cafe Christmas 2016 Crossword Puzzle
December 25, 2016

Christmastime is upon us once again, and amazingly another year is coming to an end. This marks my 58th Christmas here on Earth - that's 58 trips around the sun and a barely measurable distance around the Milky Way galaxy; where has the time gone? "Tempus fugit," as the dial of my grandmother clock proclaims. In fine tradition, this week's engineering crossword puzzle has a special theme that contains a heart-felt message from all the staff (Melanie and me) here at RF Cafe. We hope you had a good 2016 and that you will have a safe and happy holiday season. Carpe diem.

About RF Cafe

Webmaster:

    Kirt Blattenberger,

    BSEE - KB3UON

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
