Hey all, my name is Ray and I'm in my final year of electrical engineering at UBC in Vancouver, Canada!

Most of my interest is in power electronics for EVs and renewables. I've spent the past few years on UBC Formula Electric, a student design team that creates cars to compete in FSAE Formula Electric competitions. I've also built my own electric skateboard and e-bike.

As my final year project, I'm part of a group of students basically making a competitor to the OpenScope. A reminder that Dave handily roasted the OpenScope in #1056. Hopefully our project avoids a lot of the shortcomings of the OpenScope and might get adopted by UBC as part of it's 2nd year lab kit for electrical engineering students.

Fun fact: I'm also a licensed pilot and glider flight instructor!

Anyways I look forward to building my practical engineering skills and learning about how things are done in industry. I feel like this forum has a lot of knowledge when it comes to these kind of things. Hope to see you all around!

Greetings, I'm Ivy,

I used to be an electronics tech, and contracted with Motorola back years ago running bodge wires for a few thousand radios for the CFA and DNRE.

Ended up in IT eventually and getting back into electronics. Recently rewired some simple passive circuits for my guitars, which is always fun.

And arguing on guitar forums that most poly caps are the same, and those "orange drops" that you're buying from guitar sites for $10 or more can be found cheaply via other means.

But then guitarists often believe in a lot of woo so I probably should stop.

anyway I think I'll enjoy this forum.

Hello all!   I recently discovered Dave's YouTube channel so though I would join in the fun here.   

I have fooling around with electronics and ham radio since I was i kid in the late 70's.   Professionally I have had some sort of factory floor adjacent to my office, but recently I find myself writing software to control electric grids around the world.   Fun stuff, but not at all hands on.   So I need to get that out of my system at home in the radio shack.   I have a bunch of projects to finish including a broken TDS 420A scope, an Analog Devices ADALM-PLUTO SDR to play with and then some.

Hi everyone! My name is Denis and I'm from Germany.

I'm an (physics) engineer in a calibration lab but I consider myself as an electronics novice. I'd like to learn more about test gear, repairs, metrology and precision measurements in the next couple of years. I'm also a ham radio operator (on hiatus) but I'd like to reignite the hobby in 2021.

I was hesitating doing electronics as a hobby but it was always frustrating watching others doing interesting stuff and projects instead of doing my own projects. Few months ago I decided to build my own Lab/Workspace where I can tinker and do my own experiments.

I've been following Dave's YouTube Channel for like 10 years now but never registered to his forum. He and Shahriar from TheSignalPath really inspired me to give it a try.

So let's see what 2021+ will bring and happy New Year everyone! :-)

Hello from the US.  I work in the tech industry and spend my days with my head in the clouds so I have an interest in what happens closer to the metal.  I found the Youtube channel a few years ago and have enjoyed following along.  I just recently moved to a place with a garage so I picked up the Ben Eater 8bit CPU kit to actually do something electronics-y and as an excuse to build out a home lab.

Hello everyone. I'm a student of electrical engineering in my second year at the University of Central Florida. Currently living in Ireland to avoid all the craziness in the US. Just came here because I've been watching the EEVblog youtube for a few years and never actually made an account on the forum, just lurked. Anyways, nice to meet everyone!

Hello everyone  :D

Another new member from France
I have not yet a job, as I am still into the studies (1st year out of the 5 years of electronics engineer), and I'm 19 years old.
I'm doing electronics since 10-11 years, as I began with electronics toy / kits when I was 8-9
I'm also doing high voltage hobby since 2 years, especially with ZVS flyback, voltage multipliers, and oil transformers.

I come here to discuss about electronics, after lurking this forum for ~ 1year, as electronics is  my main hobby

Hello EEV Blog  :D My name is Ryan from the US ( <--- please dont hold that against me w/ current affairs)  :-DD

Very long time electronics learner with a crazy journey thus far. Well lets see, Ive been around electronics since the analog era into the digital. Maybe not as much as some of the "veteran", "seasoned", or old timers but I remember MS DOS and floppy drives well  :-DD

I have been subscribed to EEVBlog since 17NOV2016 and used to fall asleep catching up on all videos he had from then on. I haven't been as faithful lately (sorry) but that I've finally been able to get back into school now and finish my engineering technology degree with a concentration in electrical and currently a senior completing my first Bachelors.

After nearly 10 years in the auto industry working on repairing 12v dc systems it really got me interested in engineering as well. Hoping to be finished sometime 2021 with my BS. This is a complete change in direction for me since previously it was auto specific electrical repair and diagnosis which lead to a great deal of knowledge on both electrical and mechanical systems but between that and military experience operating 24v dc systems in trucks and radios as well (They didn't let us tinker much, pull and replace faulty stuff, never teardown) I'm ready for the next step.

Honestly I keep forgetting the forum exists and is SO CRAZY PACKED with great information and people. This is me getting back into social settings and forums again ( >:D) and with my career moving forward and such a change from auto repair to engineering I'm sure I will have plenty of questions that will eventually lead into help for others :)

Currently I am a student worker for my university and operate the electronics lab for our students as well as tutor some of the lower classes and currently preparing to finish communication and microcontroller classes this spring.

Future goals, I would love to work with one of the front line companies in the industry but we will see where the road takes me. Hopefully not just to the local air conditioner factory  :-X

Just a quick hello in the forums, here, wouldn't hurt; Go by 'sarge' here, but under a different alias in the IRC channels. Have been part of the IRC channels for quite some time, yet signed up for this account some time ago, and haven't really posted anything until now.

Worked on aircraft avionics in the past, nowadays into ham radio, electronics in general, programming, networking, etc; This list keeps expanding, as according to my friend, I'm really crazy when it comes to this sh*t. Yes, that's singular, people suck here in the US, so I keep that friend list to a minimum. No formal education, other than the military.

Cheers.

Hi Folks,  New guy from Scotland here. I did study electronics a bit at Uni, but never got too deep. I always did hobby with it on & off (Mum taught me to solder when I was little lol) but now trying to get started again. I work in IT and enjoy a bit of coding. I enjoy the youtube videos as I can still mostly understand whats being discussed but my practical knowledge is pretty lacking.

Hi guys! Happy to be here :)

I was a student in electronics for 2 and a half years, but dumped all my classes 6 months away from my diploma. I needed to live life on my own for a while, school was killing me from the inside. Fast forward 2 years, during which I didn't touch anything electronics related (I was working on film and tv show sets, but nothing you've heard about), and here I am now, a professional electronics technician...

I buy broken stuff, fix it and resell it for a profit! I've been doing this for a couple months and I'm having the time of my life. I don't make a ton of money doing this, but I make more than enough and I love doing it, and that's what matters the most to me. The feeling of pure bliss when you finally find what was causing that darn problem and fixing it is very addictive... much more than sitting in a class listening to someone talk about capacitors for 3 hours :D

I am here to learn, and eventually to help once I get good enough!

See you around ;)

Greetings! I'm a software engineer from Santiago, Chile, dabbing into hardware and electronics as a hobby.  :-+

I began with Arduinos, Rasperry Pis and that sort of thing, and now I'm continuing to learn more and more about electronics and electricity in general, trying to understand how my software works from the electron level! I'm also a tinkerer by heart so I love to build stuff, repair, or just crack open devices and poke them with my oscilloscope and  multimeter. I've been watching EEVBlog for a while in Youtube but now it's my first time posting in the forums. So hello!  :D

Hi everybody!, I'm hmscott - from the San Francisco Bay Area!

I started in electronics when I was 8 or so, got my Amateur Novice license when I was 12, and then General 2 years later.  Currently lapsed, but getting back into it now that I am "retired", actually disabled.  Can't get around like I used to, so back into my hobbies: Hifi listening, Radio - SWL now, Ham relicense later, RC vehicles, and Test Equipment.

Now I want to get back to my roots and enjoy some hands on electronics project building supporting my radio, RC, hifi hobbies.  I also bought the EEVBlog BM768 here yesterday, and of course I've been watching Dave for many years on YouTube.

I'm happy to be a new member of the EEVBlog.  :-+

Hi everyone,

I'm David "Cherry" Trapp, 28yo self-employed software developer from Austria, I was always into electronics and other technical stuff - in school I built robots and display boards that show our lesson schedule and its changes and things like that. I've been watching EEVBlog videos and supporting Dave on Patreon for many years now, but since I didn't do much with hobby electronics in the recent years and focused more on my main profession (although I definitely want to pick it up again) I rarely looked into the forums.

Hello everyone,
I am a medico from Oz.
Finally getting to do and learn about real evidence-based science. Have been following Dave's YT channel for a while and become really envious of his dumpster-digging abilities. Lurked here recently and been amazed at the depth of knowledge, as well as the generosity of the posters.
Look forward to learning lots and, hopefully, contributing.
