December 1965 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Unlike many of the crossword puzzles found in many magazines, the majority of the words and clues in this 1965 Electronics World "Electronic Crosswords" puzzle pertain to electronics, physics, mathematics, and other technical topics. Only a couple pertain to items not used in modern electronics assemblies, but you probably know what they are, anyway. I took the liberty of inserting alternate clues for the non-technical words, thus effectively rendering the entire crossword puzzle as totally compliant as my weekly RF Cafe Crossword Puzzles. You're welcome.

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...
