Doug from Philly

Post by dlucy67 on Wed Jun 12, 2013 6:35 pm

Hello there,

I'm a longtime technical geek form Virginia who has moved to Pennsylvania and finally found the spare time to dabble. I like listening to music, I prefer older more stylish equipment, and that means I've got to learn how to troubleshoot and then maintain the HH Scott tuner and the Heathkit Daystrom preamp....

My dad was an electronics technician so I got plenty of hands-on experience DOING stuff as a kid (soldering, drilling PCBs, swapping tubes, etc.) but no real experience understanding WHY I was told to do this or that. So, I've got some old practical skills, but I've got most everything to learn ahead of me.

I'm looking forward to getting some guidance and help as I build up some test gear and then use it to return these 50's and 60's pieces to warm, useful life.

Cheers,
Doug

I grew up in Tidewater, kinda on the border between Virginia Beach and Chesapeake. I moved to Northern Virginia for a few years before splitting the difference and settling in Richmond, right in the middle of the state... until I got married and my new wife got accepted to the dual grad program at Widener University, just outside Philly.
