May 1961 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.

Electronics World magazine often published electronics-themed crossword puzzles. Unlike RF Cafe engineering crosswords that use only technical words and clues, this one does include some unrelated words. A couple clues I was surprised to see pertain to radar; e.g., 32A: Small visible mark on a radar or scope screen, and 44A: Identification Friend or Foe. You'll need to print this out on paper to work it.

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...
