Hello All, introducing myself as a new member of the forum. 

Like many of you I have been watching Bill's fabulous workshops for some time (on youtube under the same username), and wish to engage more with like-minded people.

I have a ham radio license and one of my projects so far was to take an old Codan crystal radio and add a Variable Frequency Oscillator front end that is controlled by an arduino.  Basically the Adruino and VFO allowed the fixed frequency to be variable like normal radios.  This was a project that I followed step by step and was largely over my head.

A more recent project is a dog barking device, basically clap on code that executes an alarm if the roomNoise > than a setThresholdValue.  Introducing a rotary encoder that allowed the latter to be altered by the user was challenging.  I was proud of this one as a solution was requested by my brother and I wrote this one from the ground up.

The next challenge is to build a Doc Brown RC for the Delorean. One that counts up on a seven-segment dual display when the controller (potentiometer) is pushed forward.  Maybe even output some sound from the scene in the movie.

I hope to learn more from you all and also contribute whenever I can.

I look forward to eMeeting you all

Thanks Tibby 🙂
