If you have arrived here by accident, consider it a break in whatever you are doing. You may still find it interesting.
If you came here intentionally - continue.
Background: I am a radio amateur and have held his call-sign since 1976 when I first became licensed. My interests have been predominantly in research and building. Although I have been “on air” numerous times, the excitement of investigative research into developing technologies has resulted in more time being spent with pen and paper (and a soldering iron).
My other passion has been flying. Until recently, I owned and operated my own ‘plane. Unfortunately, due to a chronic back jury, I have had to give up flying the “real thing” and reverted to radio-controlled aircraft.
Research, Design and Development
Over the years, I have involved myself in numerous electronics projects. Some have been “exercises into futility” but, never-the-less, educational. Other exercises have reaped benefits.
From the outset,my interests have centred around computers and controllers and to a lesser degree the generation of transmission signals (communications)
My wife and I have travelled overseas numerous times as well as having toured much of Australia.
Trying to understand what makes people “tick”. When responding to the same circumstances - we all instinctively behave differently.
