Hello everyone!

My name is Marty and I live in Austin, TX.  I've been in and around electronics all my life (my Dad had a TV repair business.... can still smell the solder!).

My current interest is in all these IoT things that are so interesting.  A friend and I are starting to build a weather station that (hopefully) will report info via a cellular modem.

The Dronebot workshop seems to be a really great channel to learn about these devices and I'm looking forward to being part of the forum.

Marty

Hi Marty,

Welcome to the forum.

The DBWS and forums have been great help in helping to get my various projects working. I'm sure you'll have the same experience here.

Regards,  Lee

Dallas

Indeed ...Welcome to all who are even remotely deplorable..I am most certainly irredeemably and extremely deplorable (Just how it pans out) . I would like to share boring "lived perceived experiences = True"  and immutable concerning ferreting out old valve radios from rubbish tips.  Yes we had those in Australia too. Pulling them, to bits and building "other things " from what we salvaged. 

Dont think you were ever alone as a young feller thirsting for knowledge...

Hello everyone,

My name is Tyrone (or just Ty).  I have loved electronics since I was kid.  I have a degree in electrical engineering and have worked as a manufacturing engineer for most of my career.  I enjoy working on projects at home and love to learn.  I play with arduinos, Raspberry Pi, and IOT circuits to name a few.  I am currently building a Class D Stereo amplifier.  I also enjoy 3D printing (Prusa i3 MK2).  I'm looking forward to meeting others that love electronics and building circuits.

G'day Tyrone, from beleaguered Australia.

D Class amplifiers are fascinating.  Back in the day we obsessed about linearity in valve amplifiers because "switch mode" signal processing was just not going to happen.

With today's technology it not only can but seems to make a lot of sense.

Very much looking forward to sharing in your project.

Kind Regards

Mark.

@mark-bolton Thanks Mark.  When I was younger it was all about Class A & B amps.  We have certainly come a long way.

Hi

   I am Kirk from Corvallis, Oregon.  I look forward to exchanging ideas with some of you.   I am retired and was a former electronics technician. I worked on the bench repair of portable bar code scanners.  I am interested in alternative energy and have built a small scale DC charging system for my house.  I have been learning the language of Arduino Uno and hope to apply that to the use of stepper motors.

Hi Kirk,

Welcome. We have joined this forum both just a few hours ago.

I'm also very interested in developing solutions in the alternative energy area. I'm interested in Smart Home tech, but mostly in the specific aspect how to make a home or community completely self-sufficient in energy and retain comfort using innovative concepts.

Hi Kirk and activ8me. I live in an Off Grid RV and have been learning OpenHAB and more recently Node Red. It was very frustrating at first because so much of the You Tube content was from people with political leanings who wanted to make a point about environmentalism. I wasted so much time watching cranks talking about free energy and completely impractical contraptions that were a waste of time.  I now have my solar system working pretty well. I want to interface with my epever chargers using modbus. I have only just got my first MQTT project running.
