RF & Microwave Companies Crossword Puzzle
September 13, 2015

This week's RF & Microwave Companies crossword puzzle includes the names of all my current advertisers and a few others that will be familiar to many of you (clues labeled with asterisk *). These kinds of puzzles take a particularly long time to create because of needing to force words into certain positions. That leaves the software with fewer options for fitting the other words. All the words in RF Cafe crossword puzzles are relevant to engineering, science, mathematics, etc., stored in a hand-built (over more than a decade) lexicon of thousands of terms and clues. Enjoy.

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