Hi, even tho I am 'just a tech' I enjoy soldering at times. Bad eyes
make it 'more fun'!! I am working on getting a goal or whatever before
I do an upgrade. Former Honeywell compuker test tech here in Phx az area.

Not an engineer, so basically a 'schematic thief' type of 'homebrewer'
or kits. I have 'designed?' a couple non rf things from an idea, again
mostly thievery involved from data books etc.

Right now, spending whatever 'extra' (didn't know I had it) money on
co-pays for an glaucoma specialist.. 4/30 will be $150 so far at
$30/visit and I think a couple or so more visits next month if
everything goes smoothly.

Interested in cw only, have a phone line for chatting!! Bad ears,
still fighting them to learn cw tho.

Hope the glaucoma treatment works-out OK.

Wes put me on to to them and they were cheap at, $5.99

Best of luck, John
