I am a 52 year old guy who has been doing home wiring (only my own and for my brother) since I was about 14 years old.
I learned all that I know from reading books (I used to read the Electrician's Handbook when I was first able to get an adult library card, probably around age 12), and from watching others and asking lots of questions.
I surely didn't get any of my ability from my dad, as he is completely inept at DIY.
As my "handle" may suggest, I am an amateur radio operator (advanced class).
My other interests are Running, Trains, Photography, and computers just to name a few.
I am also an experienced skier, but haven't been for 2 years.
I look forward to answering questions, and posting my own for other experienced members.
