"A Charlie Brown Christmas" Crossword Puzzle
December 6, 2015

A Charlie Brown Christmas - RF CafeIf you have been around RF Cafe or my hobby website, Airplanes and Rockets, for any length of time, you probably know of my being a lifelong fanboy of the Peanuts comic strip, drawn by Charles Schulz. This week's engineering crossword puzzle contains the names of many Peanuts characters who appear in the "A Charlie Brown Christmas" animated feature that first aired on TV on December 9, 1965, on CBS (all the other words are engineering and science related). Clues for those characters' names are marked with an asterisk. If you have never seen the show or if it has been a long time, there's no time like the present to watch it.

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

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

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 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...
