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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Radar & Radio Engineering Crossword Puzzle
November 1, 2015

It's confession time. While it is true that all of the RF Cafe crossword puzzles contain only words, abbreviations, and phrases that pertain to topics in engineering, radar, radio, science, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, etc., the actual title of the puzzle is made up mainly to look attractive to search engines. There are puzzles, however, with titles like "Famous Scientists" where I do go through and specifically fit in names of people like DeForest, Einstein, Edison, Bell, et al. This crossword falls into the former category.

I will be glad to create a special edition crossword for your newspaper, newsletter, etc.

Reproduction of this puzzle without the express permission of RF Cafe is prohibited.
acr. = acronym, abbr. = abbreviation, pl. = plural, wds. = words
