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.

January 1963 Electronics WorldTable of Contents
People old and young enjoy waxing nostalgic about and learning some of the history of early electronics. Electronics World was published from May 1959 through December 1971. See all Electronics World articles.
Fellow cruciverbalists, here from a 1963 edition of Electronics World is an electronics-themed crossword puzzle for your end-of-the week enjoyment. You can click on the grid for a larger, printable, write-on-able paper version. If you are an avid worker of crosswords and don't already know it, I have created hundreds over the last decade+ that are available here. Unlike this crossword from Electronics World (and most others for that matter), my puzzles have only hand-picked words related to engineering and science.
