Hello everybody!

I'm Clark. I am a retired electrical engineer. I live in Topeka, KS. Today is the first time I checked this forum. I am happy to see there is a wealth of information here. I'm selling a Fluke 92B ScopeMeter and once it is sold I'm going to buy a bench top scope. I hope this forum can educate me on good scopes.

Before I retired, I designed and installed industrial control systems. I've worked in several industries - oil and gas, wood products (lumber and plywood manufacturing), concrete plants, water treatment, sewage treatment...to name a few. I even had a fun gig developing a telephone switch for prepaid cellular. For most of my career I did a lot of software development, mostly on SCADA systems. My last job was developing a data acquisition devise to acquire data from down hole sensors in oil wells. The device acquired the data, encrypted it, and transmitted it to central servers. It also allowed remote reconfiguration of the device and the downhole sensors.

Now that I am retired, I'm doing more embedded software development. I absolutely love the ESP32 micro controller made by Espressif. Right now I'm working on drivers for servo, stepper, and DC motor control using this chip. I'm also trying to figure out what project I should build when I get those drivers working.

I'm also contemplating getting a 3D printer. The new Prusa i3 Mk 3 has my attention!

I'm also a long time viewer of the YouTube channel.

I'm looking forward to getting involved in this forum.

Clark

Hello, I'll try it in English and help with the Google translator - my English is not good.

First of all let me introduce myself (I'm writing this fantastic forum first) I'm Tomas I'm from Prague and since I left Mom's belly I'm interested in electro when I was older I added the mechanics (6 years - the first functional telegraph and repaired alarm) I later added work with wood, motorbikes and cars. After school, I worked in a laboratory for the operational research and development of an international telephone exchange, now as a service technician in the field of industrial gastronomy and servicing our production hall for processing of stainless steel (CNC, hydraulic and mechanical forming machines)

I would like to thank the founder of this amazing forum, I discovered it sometime ago, and since then it's not a day for me to say no, or to watch a video on Youtube. I found a lot of good advice and interesting ideas. Originally I wanted to introduce myself in the topic "How does your lab that looks like" to contribute something too, the post was uploaded but did not appear :(  i am trotl - big photos :)

Beautiful day wishes Tomas

Hello from Minnesota, USA. I’m a hobbyist that has dabbled/tinkered with electronics, but never seriously. Recently stumbled upon Dave’s YouTube and found this forum. I just bought a BM235 DDM, a few breadboards and components and a few small cheap kit to practice soldering. I’m interested in learning to repair some old audio equipment I have and looking forward to learning a lot from this group.

Hi all,

My name is Charles and I'm a Computer Engineer who likes doing both software and firmware.  I've posted a couple of times here before but realized I hadn't actually introduced myself.  I'm currently working on some hardware to improve my telescope and automate some items.

I am Pepe. I have a really low-fi youtube channel called Pepe's World: for computer hackers & electronics enthusiasts with no money - and no friends.
electronics, hacking, farts, failure, life. theres plenty of low-budget oriented channels out there but we sink even lower.

Hi.  I am a long time lurker who has finally decided to join.  Although I do have an EE background I have not done much hands on electronics work.  Currently I am looking to assembly a test bench and get my hands dirty.

Hello!

I'm Matt from North Carolina and I'm currently an RF/Microwave Engineer for a large defense and space company. I just finished my MSEE, and also have a BSEE, BSCPE, AAS EET, and an AAS CET. My interests are in vacuum tube technology and my background is more MMICs and RF.

I survived college by watching EEVblog, TheSignalPath (Boosh's channel not Shahriar's ;D),  Mikeselectronicstuff, wae2w, Carlson's Lab,  and many others. I've been able to learn a lot from everyone and finally have the time out of school to post and contribute to the forum!

Take care :)

-Matt

Hello,

My name is Haydon Beagley and I'm from the Old Dart (or England if you prefer) - I've always been interested in Electronics and Computers since a very young age and have always been involved in some way.
Ironically my degree wasn't very related to electronics or computers but I'm slowly getting more involved with it, and hopefully shall get some unloved and half finished projects up and running.

Thanks to Dave and the team for the Blog!

All the best,

Haydon

I am Thomas currently a A level student in Northern Ireland from a farming background who likes poking at the guts of items with wires coming out of them. My main weakness is software type problems>it's too boring and time consuming to learn how to code and deal with command lines

Hello forum,

My name is Sebastien, currently working as a junior electrical engineer in Quebec Canada. I decided to subscribe here not long ago because of a sudden change of career that got me interested back into the world of small electronics. I'v played around with robots and programming before as a hobby but never extensively. It's slowly but surely getting back though. I worked as a technician and electrician on the field before, and my previous position at my current employer was to design electrical substation. So I have more experience into designing simpler yet bigger electrical toys than with small electronics stuff. I'm also a woodworking enthusiast.

Your videos and overall subjects are really interesting Dave, I'm actually watching them to help me get more knowledge about small electronics design for my current job.
I'm looking forward to getting involved in this forum !

Regards
Oh ... it wasn't supposed to do that ... is it ?

Hi, I'm Bob, yet another EE.   

The "CFL" is for Central Florida.  I retired at the end of 2015 from a career as an RF/Microwave design engineer in commercial and military air and space borne systems.  My last 20 years were at Rockwell Collins commercial avionics here in Melbourne, FL. 

My specialties were PLL Synthesizers, receivers and transmitter linearizers (ALC and Cartesian feedback loops).  I worked from DC to 10 GHz. 

I found EEVBlog a few months ago when my Tektronix 475 took a dump, and I've been back often enough that I figured I should sign up.  I'm getting ready to decide on replacing the scope with a new one, so I've been mostly hanging out in the test equipment forum archives, and checking Ham Radio, since I've been a radio hobbyist since I was about 12 - 52 years.


Bob

Typical forum always has a tread on introducing members.  ;D ;D

Hello from Malaysia. I am currently studying in Sunway Monash University Campus in Electrical & Computing System Engineering (2nd year). I got a bit bored by the typical theoretical lecture and wanted to buy some lab instrument for the practical side. I recently bought PICkit 3, fluke 289/FVF, LCR meter TH2821, some soldering tools and breadboards. I am currently building my own linear power supply for my micro-controller and looking forward to start learning micro-controller myself.  ;)

 
Hello. Norman from Blacksburg Va. Just an old time CB audio gear repair hobbyist.  Still learning in my retired state. Not looking to work on new digital systems. Thanks

Hi!

I'm Dennis.
Actually estudied Telecom Engineering almost 10 years ago but nowdays I'm focused on my business: a small web and mobile sofware development agency.
Always liked electronics and finally having some more time now to spend on my bench.
I have never worked professionally on electronics so more like an "advanced hobbyst"

See you around!

Dennis.

Hi

My name is Karol and if it sounds any funny to you just read it as Charles Xavier ;) Just add more hair and take a square root on IQ  ;)  My junk room is located near the capital city of Poland in the suburban area so that kinda makes a Polish viewer and excludes me from NSA spies :D ;) I`ve never wore a tin foil hat but if I would I would totally call myself Apollo and not Horus ;) I try to stay open minded when it goes to interaction with the stuff that is placed on the interWeb aswell as everywhere else . I am into Consumer electronics ( but not focused on gadgets)  90s Vintage computers and beyond ( never had a CPM ) SBCs , Discharging Capacitors ( aswell as charging electrolytic ones beyond their reference voltage on a "stupid stick")

Now I am over 30 and i have more resources than I had when I was younger so I am using them to expand my electronics knowledge as it`s my secret passion ( just after being a fire man , Fighter plane pilot and Tony Stark )

Thanks for having me in ;) And lets hope my comments will be insightfull or at least funny ;) ( not in a way that could offend anyone )

PS: we use different names for many basic components and mechanics so please keep that in mind when I say Condenser or sth like that ;)

I’m Gary from southern Utah in the US, deep in red rock country. Electronics is a hobby for me since I switched to computer science from EE back in college... ah, regrets... but it’s fun to jump back in now.

You people have been busy since the 80’s!! As a teen in the 70’s I built a breadboard computer with a 4004 processor from Intel and a stack of ram chips totaling 1kb. At first it had a phone touchpad as a keyboard with seven segment displays, and I coded on graph paper using octal notation for hand-entered assembly. Soon after, I built a one line 32 character display based on a Popular Electronics article (I think) that used a saw tooth waveform on a bell&Howell oscilloscope to trace the pixels from a character generator at a slant. Needless to say, it was awesome.

Now I’m fascinated by mcu’s like the attiny and small form factor awesomeness like raspberry pi zero w. What a great time to start playing again!

Cheers to all!

Hello, I'm Gary from somewhere near the capital of oil country in Canada. Spent most of my life in the oilfield as an Electrician. Dad took an electronics course in 1966 (I was 12) but it set an interest that has never faded, unlike my memory. :-DD I've got a Fluke DMM, some breadboards, Forrest MimsIII booklets, Heathkit scope, some proto boards and a Hako 936. >:D Now that I'm retired and the kids are gone, it's time to release some magic smoke.

Awesome forum!! 

P.S. and try not to ask too many dumb questions.  :o
Every complex problem has a simple, easy to understand, wrong answer.

Hi All,

I have been interested in electronics from a early age, i had a work placement doing tv and video repairs from the age of 16 while going to college for electronics hardware, I then moved into the IT field, that went from diagnosing electronics in the early days to box moving and parts swapping in the later years

My first thread will be up shortly................
