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 appeared fairly regularly in electronics magazines in the 1960's and 1970's, then for some reason disappeared. I have been a worker of crossword puzzles on nearly a daily basis for as long as I can remember throughout my 64 year lifetime. For the past 20 years I have been making weekly electronics-themed crossword puzzles for RF Cafe visitors. To be honest, I have no idea how many people work them; maybe I've been wasting my time. This "Electronic Crosswords" appeared in the November 1962 issue of Electronics World magazine. A list of all the other crosswords from vintage magazines is located at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

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 tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
