Electrical Engineering Theme Crossword Puzzle
September 25th, 2022

This custom made Electrical Engineering theme crossword puzzle for September 25th is provided compliments of RF Cafe. It's a big one with more than 240 words - good for a long flight. All RF Cafe crossword puzzles are custom made by me, Kirt Blattenberger, and have only words and clues related to RF, microwave, and mm-wave engineering, optics, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and other technical subjects. As always, this crossword puzzle contains no names of politicians, mountain ranges, exotic foods or plants, movie stars, or anything of the sort unless it/he/she is related to this puzzle's technology theme (e.g., Reginald Denny or the Tunguska event in Siberia). The technically inclined cruciverbalists amongst us will appreciate the effort. Enjoy!
