This Electronic Crosswords
puzzle appeared in the October 1963 edition of Electronics World magazine.
About half the words used are related directly in some way to electronics or physics.
It's a fairly small puzzle so it shouldn't take you too long to complete. My
RF Cafe crosswords,
by the way, have 100% of the words directly related to the sciences, from a custom
lexicon I have created over 20 years of making puzzles. Enjoy.
