Margaret LeFevre created a handful electronics-themed crossword puzzles for Electronics World magazine. Crosswords have been around for at least two centuries and come in many formats from having both x- and y-axis symmetry to symmetry about only one axis or even no symmetry at all. They can be square, rectangular, or have special shapes. This particular one has partial symmetry about the y-axis. Note that it is composed of two isolated regions with no open path between the regions. If you enjoy working crossword puzzles, there are plenty more which I have posted from electronics magazines, plus I have created hundreds of RF Cafe Crosswords.

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...
