Being an old-school old guy (turn 64 this year), I still work the crossword puzzle in the daily newspaper - surely you've heard of antiquated print media form of which I am the only house on my street which has it delivered daily. I also like the cryptogram type word jumble puzzles. Working the Sudoku puzzles is also a pencil and paper exercise (as opposed to interactive online) because of my method of figuring out the numbers. My older sister is a whiz at them, and she does them on her iPhone. Old habits die hard, as the saying goes. But I digress. In addition to the weekly RF Cafe Engineering and Science crossword puzzles I create each week, I also like to post crosswords that appeared in the vintage electronics magazines. This one appeared in the March 1962 issue of Popular Electronics.

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...
