Default Hi from Kansas

I tried posting in other forums & then realized there's an intro forum. I see my posts have to be looked over by a mod 1st. How long before that's not necessary? I read the TOS but I didn't see it anywhere.

Well, I've always been a fan of electronics & audio since I was a young kid. I started tearing loudspeakers apart & rebuilding them when I was 10 or 11. I had a basic understanding of electricity when I was really young, long before that. I've been around electronics geeks all my life. My best friend is a family friend that's 64 years old (I'm only 37) & he repaired electronic equipment for the defense contractor I work for now, before he retired. I've picked up a lot from him & we have flown RC airplanes together for the last few years.

I learned to solder at a very young age & have done it most of my life. I got training for Mil-Spec soldering where I work & have soldered on batteries that have gone into several military missles.

During my years of speaker rebuilding I've toyed with starting a repair shop but didn't follow through. I have designed several speakers that I've never gotten to build & have drawings for a subwoofer motor that I was going to patent but I could never afford to do it. So I guess I've done a lot without doing anything

I'm recently getting back into car audio after many years away & have picked up repairing amplifiers from the golden years when they were made in USA. That's a learning process for sure.

Umm I like long walks on the beach, heavy metal music, some country music, no rap... Oh sorry I thought there for a minute I was filling out a profile on another type of forum

Oh yeah, I'm a wise *** & long winded. I love to make people laugh.

Welcome

If you can behave you are let out of moderation after 5 posts and this won't be so hard for most people.

Welcome to diyA....

New users get moderated primarily so that we can keep spammers under control. I believe you are out now.

Thanks guys. I just happened upon this site in a search for something & got totally sidetracked reading. It's a pretty cool forum if you ask me.
