Hello, I'm Joop and I'm setting up my measurement corner. Sometimes I have to build my own stuff because its not there. I'm busy with sound, model trains and computer, sometimes all combined. But for now its setting up my own measurement lab.

Hi!
I'm currently learning electronics by my own trying to build a radio. So far it's been lots of fun although I'm not even near my goal yet :D

Good Afternoon,

Perusing this site trying to find ways that I could increase the capability of a new-to-me Anritsu SiteMaster S332D. I acquired this unit at quite a bargain and having purchased an InstaCal and new battery, look forward to using the instrument in my volunteer and professional world. I primarily look to use it for chasing down cables and antenna issues related to Amateur Radio, however I am also in public safety and instruct courses related to communications. This instrument will likely tag along with me to courses as show-n-tell and to help others understand the tech available to them. Currently the unit only has Option 3. While it is beyond EOL, I am wondering what mods may be available to unlock other features of this now antiquated technology. The last time I updated an S332E I believe a hex file had to be uploaded via USB. I am guessing that something similar has to be done over the serial connection on the S332D model since it doesn't have a USB port. Anyone know of a code generator or other ways to get the activation codes? What about internal hardware to add features?

Hello. I came across this forum merely from a Google search lookup on something and had a little browse around... looks a cool little place :) While I have interests in technology and the like, I know nothing about working with electronics so don't expect me in the dedicated forums areas about it, haha.

Hi All!
         Recently retired after almost 40 years in the engineering department at a major university. Life long geek/nerd with a rekindled interest in electronics after a many year hiatus. Amateur radio, vintage tube radios and test equipment, drones/quadcopters are my main hobbies. Finding myself on this forum more and more....

Hi everybody,

61 old guy, I had a first professionnal life in (mostly) digital electronics before reorienting on GNU/Linux and Internet technologies at the beginning of the y2k, even if I still make some small electronic repairs for me or some friends. You'll probably hear about it later in another thread ;D
See you on the forum   :)

Hello EEVbloggers! (blog-ettes?, EEVers? EEVblokes?)

I'm Griffin, 42, from Kansas. Went to an offshoot of K-State for my first undergrad in Electronics Engineering Technology. After a few years of end-of-line testing other people's designs, I decided I wanted to design them myself. I enrolled at KU at age 30 to get my second undergrad in Engineering Physics. Rock Chalk.

I've now spent almost 9 years as an EE helping design products in a wide range of fields. I'm lovin' it.

Hello everyone,
I am Ole, from Germany and have been lurking and occasionally writing on the forum for a bit more than a year at this point.
As for my knowledge in electronics, I am by no means a pro, at least for now, as I am an apprentice and learning the job of the
electronic technician.

Well, see yall around.
*record scratch noise* Hey, you.
Yes, you. Have an awesome day!

Hi, I built a few kits as a kid but have just been reading about electronics since then (and watching vids more recently).
Time to start building some more stuff again  :-/O
I'll have to dig out my 20MHz DSE scope but I have my cheap little multimeter handy as I've used it quite often  :-DMM
I have just saved an older scope so I'll do a teardown on that soon.

Hi! I'm George, 58. I've been in hardware and software a long time. An unfinished EE, a BSCS+telecom, and various certs.

I was in amateur radio until 2018. My neighbor got started because of me, and now leads the local club, and is pressuring me to get back into it.

I've been at my current job for 20 years at a Point-Of-Sale manufacturer... Developing firmware and BIOS, drivers, and debugging our hardware designs... Writing diagnostic and utility apps, originally in DOS but now in UEFI.

I found the EEVblog forum when I wondered whether I could do anything about calibrating my ZT-102 multimeter. Modding ensued... :) I started buying more cheap DMMs with higher counts from overseas, just to see how well they behaved when modded and/or calibrated. Of course, then I had to buy some accurate benchtop meters and some calibration sources... I think I have the beginnings of TE addiction.

Hello everyone!

Guitar tech and sound engineer here. I studied electronics in the 90's, mainly micro controllers and associated things. I occasionally repair things like FX pedals and rack units as part of my job, and I'm looking to learn more about audio power amps and switch mode power supplies, and repair techniques in general.

Cheers!

Hi Everyone! I'm Jupitus... pronounced 'JOOPITOOS' like the planet Jupiter. Real name is Jon, Jupitus is my aged gaming nick.

Anyway- I do small projects trying to fix stuff for my family and friends, and I am working on my son's old HP 15 laptop.... again.... I am going to be away for Christmas so just saying hi for now, but will try to research and prep a reasonable 'help me please' post in the near future. Nice to meet you, please be kind to the silly idiot that I am  :-[

Not "new" anymore, but never got to introduce myself.

My username is BlownUpCapacitor, but my real name is Benjamin Badrakh.
I am currently 15, living in CA, USA as I write this. I have a genuine interest in electronics, mainly old electronics. I haven't designed many circuits so far, but have serviced a few scopes and test equipment to date. These include a Tek 2230, Tek 7613, Tek 2235, Tek DC504, Tek FG501, Tek SC502, Tekpower power supply, Tek 5CT1N, Tek 5110, and Exact 524. My first fix was a 2235 when I was 11 years of age. Only a few bad caps in the PSU causing massive ripples in the waveform.

Every time I fix another piece of gear, I learn something new, and also repairing TE keeps me busy.

My next piece of gear I plan to fix is a 7904. I found this beast in my local E-Recycle shop, and have not yet taken it yet, for lack of skill. But I have saved up a nice knowledge and hope to take it with me next week for restoration and repairs.
Love the smell of burning capacitor electrolyte in the morning.
