An amateur photographer by any standard, but do enjoy the craft of capturing images and shooting things with a camera.
Bass guitar is a passion although a howling six string with overdrive also gets attention. From classic to heavy metal - bring it on..
Passionate about birds of prey, from eagles to owls. An eager apprentice falconer at heart, with special interest in wild life preservation.
A passion for American muscle cars as well as hybrid automobile power systems. If it has four wheels and drives, I like it.
Both digital and analogue electronics fascinate me. Interfacing to the real world via AD/DA and DIO. Building RF preamplifiers, notch filters and more, even moving into heavy light current ECO-Energy projects using the sun and the wind.
In particular the micro computers like the Raspberry PI. Using small footprint low power computers to interface to the real world. For ultra small specific purpose computing, custom design circuits using pics are made.
Radio receivers and transmitters with special interest going out to digital signal processing, software defined radio and antenna designs. From 1/4 dipoles to beer can antennas. From DC to 2.4 GHz and above.
Fascination, interest and respect for wildlife, eco systems, natural resources and their preservation. (music by: Jonny Clegg & Savuka - Great Heart)
