Default Greetings!

I just found this site, and thought I would introduce myself.

I am a 64 year old Engineer, and I design Plasma Generators for Magnetron Sputtering.

I recently got interested in tubes, something I haven't worked with since I was a kid.

Interesting to see that there are still applications, and I had forgotten how much fun it was to build tube stuff.

I also think it is an area that will keep me occupied in my retirement, and keep me out of trouble. (Like that is possible.)

Hi Skysoldier - and Welcome to diyAudio!!!!

Once upon a time in another life I resided in the Republic of Massachusetts living near Springfield. My brother still lives there and works down in Hartford.

I'm not here because I like it, I'm really a Migrant Worker from Albuquerque!

Interesting site though, been reading a lot of cool stuff on the tube forums!

Been working most of my life generating megawatt pulses, so 300V is really low voltage for me.

Thanks for the welcomes....

Default Hello

I have been visiting the site since I found Common Sense Audio and got the bug to build my own speakers. A recent lay-off has given me more time to dedicate to audio pursuits that have been fallow for 20+ years.
