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...

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

You have to be careful when working this crossword puzzle from the August 1960 edition of Popular Electronics because in one instance the name of a certain federal agency has changed since then, and in another instance the element cited as being "commonly used" no longer is. It will add to the challenge, which, honestly, is not all that great. I did not have the magazine page with the solution available when posting this so I had to work the puzzle myself to create a solution.
