am a retired Electrical Engineer with more than 35 years of experience

digital circuit design, hardware systems design, software design,
and algorithm design. I hold BSEE and MSEE degrees, a Professional
Engineer license in the State of California, a General Radiotelephone
Operator license, and a California Community College Instructor
Credential (Life) in two subject matter areas. I am also a Life

enjoy frequent visits to electronics newsgroups, these being the
ones that interest me:
are likely to find posts that I've made to these groups. The dialog
can often be fun. Sometimes it can be contentious. Most often it's
informative. I try my best to help beginners and hobbyists understand
the subject better. And, I often learn new things myself. That's
just the nature of these groups. If you have an interest in electronics
and you haven't already visited these newsgroups, you should give
them a try.
access newsgroups, you can use your browser or an application specifically
designed to surf newsgroups. I recommend Agent.
Agent is offered by Forté.
A PREVIOUS LIFE:
March of 1966 until October of 1969, I served in the U.S. Air Force
where I was trained as an Aircraft Radio Repairman. After Tech School,
I worked on F-105 Thunderchiefs and F-4 Phantoms. The F-105 and
F-4 were all-weather fighter-bombers and major players in the Vietnam
War. From the beginning of the war, through 1969, the F-105 dropped
more tons of bombs on North Vietnam than the B-52.
October 1968 to October 1969, I was assigned to the 388th
Avionics Maintenance Squadron of the 388th Tactical
Fighter Wing at Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base,
located near Korat, Thailand.
