Electronics 13 Feb 2019

Youth Dream

When I was young I wanted to know everything about electronics. Things were a bit more complicated than my young mind could take. But little by little I learned.

some equipment

Some of my tools.

Radio

Already at the age of 6 years I built simple radio's. When I first heard amateur radio transmissions, I also wanted to get involved in amateur radio. My father as well was interested in electronics. It is clear where I got my interests from. My father was my idol.

I really liked reading magazines on electronics. But a real good understanding on electronics had to wait until I understood more about mathematics and physics. Most of my early trials to build good radio receivers failed. Nevertheless, in the process I really learned a lot about electronics.

TV

After graduating from university I worked on Television receivers. Those were a good deal more complicated than the radio's of my youth. I really like engineering.

Computer

Over the years I also learned in computer programming. And that art has as well enriched my life.

Miniaturization

Nowadays electronics uses tiny components, that can no more be handled with simple home tools. And I have lost a most of my interest in electronics. The equipments in my cupboards only do catch dust.

Orderly thinking

With engineering I learned to think orderly. With the projects I was involved with, I learned to make and execute plans.

I need to learn in life to do a few things very well
