RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB.

July 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.
This electronics-themed crossword puzzle was published in a 1963 issue of Electronic World. Crosswords were a fairly standard feature in magazines up through the late last century. Keeping with tradition , every week (usually) I create an engineering-themed crossword puzzle that uses a hand-selected collection of a couple thousand words and clues from a dictionary I built over the last 15 years. Unlike most crosswords seen in technical and hobby publications, RF Cafe crosswords contain only relevant words - never filling in with the names of movie stars, obscure countries, or portmanteaus relating to social oddities.
