R-E Puzzler
April 1967 Radio-Electronics

April 1967 Radio-Electronics

April 1967 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here is another "R-E Puzzler," by Mr. Edmund Braun, this one in the April 1967 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Unlike traditional crossword puzzles, this one has no linking Down words, only Across words. Maybe he should have dubbed it an "acrossword puzzle." The format does make figuring out some of the words more difficult than the other way, but at least one letter - never more than two - is provided for each word. I managed to get all except number 7, "Phenolic compound having good electrical resistance." After looking at the answer, I feel like an idiot - definitely should have gotten it after mentioning it in my write-ups so often. Hopefully, you will do better. If you like this R-E Puzzler, there are others in the Jan '67, Mar '67, Apr '67, Aug '67, and Oct '67 issues.
