Ham Radio, AF MARS, Computer (Mac & PC), Arduino and basic circuit implementation.
Another Ham and I built a 2dB pad, for use between my IC 756ProIII transceiver and my ALS-600 amplifier, etched the board, drilled the holes, soldered the components, added the connectors, and placed into an aluminum enclosure, with SO-239 on each end. Basically allows me to leave the power setting on transceiver at full power and only decrease the input power to the AMP when the AMP is powered up.
Retired Systems Engineer, Software Engineer, Amateur Radio Operator, and new Arduino owner. Always liked the radio & electronics - more on the large scale software projects and technical management of large multi-million dollar systems.
