September 1965 Electronics World

On nearly every
Sunday for the past two decades, out of a personal penchant for working
crossword puzzles, I have created and posted a custom crossword puzzle
with a technical theme. Various kinds of magazines, including Radio News,
Popular Electronics, etc., occasionally published crosswords, so when I
run across them, I post them here on RF Cafe. This one appeared in a 1965
issue of Electronics World. Usually, the magazine crossword puzzles
have mostly words and clues relevant to the magazine's theme, but then backfill
with any word that will work. William Shippee did a pretty good job with this
one with only a couple off-topic words.
