January 1965 Electronics World

Janaury 1965 Electronics World Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents 

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Crossword puzzles have probably lost their appeal to most people. I suspect so because up until early this year, I created a custom electronics-themed crossword puzzle every week for RF Cafe visitors, but not a single person has written to ask that they be continued. Oh well, that saves an hour every Sunday. Lots of magazines used to print crossword puzzles based on their readers' interests. Unlike the RF Cafe crosswords that use only relevant words, those puzzles used common filler words where it was too hard to find a thematic word. This crossword puzzle from a 1965 edition of Electronics World does a pretty good job of using a majority of electronics-related words. Enjoy.

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB.

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...
