May 1967 Electronics World
Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles

This crossword puzzle appeared in the May 1967 edition of Electronics World. If you happen to be an avid cruciverbalist, then you might want to try a few of the RF and microwave engineering themed crosswords that I have been publishing weekly for a decade.
Take a well-deserved break and try your hand at some of these goodies.
Every word in the RF Cafe crossword puzzles is specifically related to engineering,
mathematics, and science. There are no generic backfill words like many other puzzles
give you, so you'll never see a clue asking for the name of a movie star or a mountain
on the Russia-China border.
All of these crossword puzzles were created using the fabulous
Crossword Express (now called "Magnum Opus") software.
