RF Cafe Website Categories Crossword Puzzle
October 18, 2015

OK, I admit that this week's crossword puzzle is a little self-serving and self-promoting, but what the hey. All of the clues with an asterisk (*) after them are categories in the table of contents at the tops of RF Cafe website pages, so that should help a bit. To make it even easier, they are all on the 'Main' TOC menu. All the rest of the words, as usual, are related to engineering, science, mathematics, etc.

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