Hi All,

Sam here - I'm from the UK. I am completely at the starting blocks with electronics! I had a couple of books since I was a kid, kept diving into them every decade then finding the math too hard/not intuitive. I finally overcame this a week or so ago by simulide for Linux and plotting out 555 timer/resistance capacitor circuits then peppering them with virtual voltmeters and amperemeters to work out what was going on. So here I am! I'm mindful that to stay interested I need to find projects that have some real world use for me, and so being an ammeter weather geek, I slowly want to flesh out a DIY weather station that can report via a html page connected to wifi.
Not really interested in using pre made circuits/Arduino etc - any advice on where to start/how to think & structure what I'm doing would be very welcome! :)

Sam

Greetings everyone!

My name's Ben and I'm currently in lovely southeastern Michigan, USA. Haven't had any formal training in electronics since a single semester of ECE about 10 years ago, but I tinker a bit and enjoy learning. I've actually been browsing this forum for a while now and it's been quite a valuable source of interesting info on all things electronic. I realized that I never actually made a profile so I decided it was high time to correct that.

Good to be here!

Hello neighbor. Similar here. The curious thing is that i was for some time in Greece company, working on automation, plcs, industrial stuff .. But they had taken the machines back to Greece last year. After that i had information that they need more people for the same machines and had offer me to go there.. 500 km, it's not that long of a ride.. But stupid me  :-//

Welcome on this forum Pascal. Apart from playing musical instruments my background is comparable to yours, i.e. aviation, unix/linux, embedded engineer and ham.... ;)

Hello everyone! My name is Kyle and I'm from Los Angeles, CA. 

I am currently studying Electrical Engineering at a local university.  I have work experience and a deep interest in control systems and industrial automation.  I also mess around with programming, 3D printing, Raspberry Pi's and computers. 

I look forward to meeting you all and learning even more!  :-+

Hi everyone, my name's Austin! I live in the U.S. and I'm a senior EE student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I'm passionate about music, having played drums since I was 10 years old, and tinkering with audio gear is what got me interested in electronics. I hope to one day work for an audio electronics company doing hardware design and maybe even write some embedded firmware while I'm at it. My other interests include reading about psychedelia, discovering new music, playing disc golf, and linux computing.

Feel free to reach me on the web at my personal site, https://austin.bumbalough.xyz

Hello EEVblog, just an EE student look to observe our odd engineering community. General Chat is crazy to read so I needed an account to add to the chaos  :bullshit: :bullshit: :bullshit:

Hello! I'm Cristián, I live in Chile, I have a degree in Computer Engineering, but I have not worked with electronics since college.
All my jobs have been in Software Engineering, but now I want to get back to electronics, at least as a hobby.

The most exciting electronics projects I've done in the past have been:
  • Solving a puzzle with a line follower robot using software PID controller to follow the line smoothly.
  • Levitating magnet with analog PID controller.
  • "Tennis for Two" clone (a very very old tennis game for oscilloscopes) using an analog computer (op-amp integrators) to simulate the physics of a bouncing ball.

I don't really remember the math nor the electronics well enough to build these projects again (except for the software parts), so my current goal is to replicate those projects before I move on to new things.

Hi, i'm Tobey and im from the Lake District, England.

I'm purely a hobbyist (I work with wood as a day job) at electronics who is returning after a large break.
My current project is a mechanical keyboard build (Lily58PRO) so i've had to learn all about SMD work as all my old projects were THT stuff. I went looking on the font of all knowledge (Youtube  ;) ) and discovered Dave and his amazing channel. Naturally i had to join this forum after seeing some of his stuff!
Only known about the guy for a few days and im already a fanboy haha

I recently assembled my 1st SMD practise kit with variable quality results so would like to practise more before the main event but otherwise i think i get the gist (big thanks to EEVBLOG for this)

Anyway, thanks for having me!
Tobey

p.s Spent last Friday teaching my 13yr old son how to solder so getting the next gen into it too!

Hey everyone, Alex here.

I'm an electrician, but I love everything techy, especially if it can be taken apart and played around with. I have a general knowledge about electronics, but I want to learn more and expand my horizon!

Hello to the EEVBlog community.  I'm the FNG here, Im located in Arizona and I'm an Aircraft Mechanic with a love of electronics.  I live for avionic issues on my planes.  Anyway I have a question for anyone who can help me.  I have a mini electronics lab at my home all with used equipment but fully functional, I have an Agilent 54622a oscilloscope and a Fluke 8845a DMM.  The DMM is what brings me here, I want to replace the display as its brightness is poor and its very burnt in.  As i said all my gear is old and very used but functional and accurate.  So is there a new display out there I can buy and install?  Also do you guy's have any recommendations of other parts I should replace in my Fluke, I figure since i'm going for a deep dive I might as well do as much as I can to give it a new lease on life.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Welcome to the forum.

Use the Search button (not the box) and drop Fluke 8845a into the search field and you'll get plenty of hits of threads on their repair.
Good hunting and luck.
