 Ah, but try DIY biotech instead, from clean slate - let's take simple synthetic bacteria as a goal for beginner :p.
 Being serious - just give it a time, electronics learning curve is somewhat steep if you don't begin below age 10 and practice it at least 10-15 years...

I've purchased a 1MHz crystal oscillator and audio transformer for transmission with magnet wire, and also separately a crystal AM radio kit (with germanium diode, piezoelectric earphone) and will play with RF.

Grabbing a prepaid credit card for a few parts is just not something I'd like to do. A simple soldering iron station, and building some fun practical kits seems very appealing now without such high expectations.

I find the whole RF side of things so very fascinating and intuitive.

we all have a finite intelligence
its the ones that claim to know everything are the one to watch out for

Feyman put it like this

I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong." Not knowing something is something that we should embrace while not being afraid to do so. This can be the motivation to drive us to seek the answers that will satisfy our curiosity.


good luck  Alexander

Feynman, 99.6 % of him is just pure Right, But as he said its only as far as we know.
