RF Cafe Website Categories Crossword Puzzle
October 18, 2015

OK, I admit that this week's crossword puzzle is a little self-serving and self-promoting, but what the hey. All of the clues with an asterisk (*) after them are categories in the table of contents at the tops of RF Cafe website pages, so that should help a bit. To make it even easier, they are all on the 'Main' TOC menu. All the rest of the words, as usual, are related to engineering, science, mathematics, etc.

Reproduction of this puzzle without the express permission of RF Cafe is prohibited.

acr. = acronym, abbr. = abbreviation, pl. = plural, wds. = words
