Being an old-school old guy (turn 62 this year), I still work the daily crossword puzzle in the daily newspaper - surely you've heard of it, that antiquated print media form of which I am the only house on my street which has it delivered daily. Old habits die hard, as the saying goes. Working the Sudoku puzzles is also a pencil and paper exercise only because of my method of figuring out the numbers. My older sister is a whiz at them, and she does them on her iPhone. But I digress. In addition to the weekly RF Cafe Engineering and Science crossword puzzles I create each week, I also like to post crosswords that appeared in the vintage electronics magazines. This one appeared in a 1974 issue of Popular Electronics.

    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...
