    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...

Thanksgiving Day Crossword Puzzle
November 20, 2016

This week's RF Cafe crossword puzzle contains the usual assortment of engineering and science related words and clues, but there are also a few specific words commemorating our Thanksgiving Day holiday (indicated by a asterisk *) that is celebrated each year on the fourth Thursday of November. Macy's 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade occurs on the morning of November 24th and follows a route along Central Park West and 6th Avenue. Interestingly, the parade was cancelled during the World War II years of 1942, 1943, and 1944 in order to conserve much needed raw materials.

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