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.):D

Hi Skysoldier - and Welcome to diyAudio!!!! :D:D:D

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!:D

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

Thanks for the welcomes....

I have spy's everywhere - Grandpa and Grandma lived in Albuquerque, two Aunt's graduated from the University there and one of them was a music Prof. before she retired a while back...

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.
