Electronics Magazines & Editors Crossword Puzzle
August 2, 2015

This week's crossword puzzle has the theme of electronics and engineering magazines and their editors. I have to plead guilty at not knowing who the editor-in-chief (EiC) of many of the publications were. After so often reading the names of the many authors and technical editors and contributing editors, etc., getting printed every month, keeping track is difficult. You should recognize all the magazine names since they are our industry's primary publications. Apologies to Microwaves & RF magazine (Nancy K. Friedrich, EiC), and to High Frequency Electronics (Scott Spencer, EiC), for not including them in the puzzle. The fact is, though, that the more words I insert at the outset, the more difficult it is for the software to complete the crossword. It took me nearly two hours to get this one done Looks like I'll have to do a second round at some point.

About RF Cafe

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...
