Research has shown over and over again that engaging in mental exercise is a good way to stave off senility in old age. Playing musical instruments, writing software, working crossword puzzles, and other types of activities that require logic, physical dexterity, and memory recall are often cited as examples. There is no guarantee these things will prevent or even delay cerebral atrophy, but why take a chance? Work this crossword just to make sure. Disclaimer: I am not a doctor and am not prescribing this challenge as a remedy for potential future imbecility, daftness, tendency to dodder, mental infirmness, or senescent gray matter accumulation, nor do I suggest that starting now will reverse any of these symptoms you might already exhibit. This electronics-themed crossword puzzle appeared in the April 1963 issue of Electronics World magazine. If you really like crossword puzzles and crave more, please see my (usually) weekly RF Cafe crossword puzzles.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

1996 - 2024


Kirt Blattenberger,


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...
