Electronics Theme Crossword Puzzle
June 4th, 2022

This week's crossword puzzle for June 4th sports an electronics theme. This being the fourth day of the month, many of the words begin and/or end with the letter "D." Besides that, we're only two days away from "D-Day." All RF Cafe crossword puzzles are custom made by me, Kirt Blattenberger, and have only words and clues related to RF, microwave, and mm-wave engineering, optics, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and other technical subjects. As always, this crossword contains no names of politicians, mountain ranges, exotic foods or plants, movie stars, or anything of the sort unless it/he/she is related to this puzzle's technology theme (e.g., Reginald Denny, Hedy Lamarr, or the Tunguska event in Siberia). The technically inclined cruciverbalists amongst us will appreciate the effort. Enjoy!

acr. = acronym, abbr. = abbreviation, pl. = plural, wds. = words
