I have been fascinated by the electron for as long as I can remember , this knowledge of how the
electron acts is vital in designing or repairing any electronic device.
I have built transmitters , receivers and amplifiers starting with huge tubes like the 5u4 and 6L6. I
was around when transistors were developed from a quarts crystal and two elements glued to it .
and I was in college when the first microchips were developed , at that time I did not see the chips
as valid , was I wrong , at the same time light emitting diodes and liquid crystals were developed,
. at that time in 1975 I envisioned a tv that could be hung on a wall , what I envisioned was more
like a screen that could roll up.
I have been to 3 electronic courses at R.E.T.S. electronic school on west grand blvd. Detroit ,
Devry institute of electronics . Chicago Ill. a mail order course which included building a 25 inch
color tv ( the largest at the time) and then a course at Mid Michigan community college in Harrison
I have worked in a shop that made transformers and an electric car which drove to Washington
DC. , plugged it in overnight and drove home , congress would not allow production of this car in
the late 1960’s. this shop also made a device that could ram paint into metal which would make
metal that could not rust. I worked in a shop repairing tv’s and the owner was experimenting with
radar guided automobile. in 1978.
I have built my own computers since the 8086 chip was developed. I had my son Jacob make his
own computer from components.
I am good at house and auto wiring and have wired a factory with 440 v, a bus had a fire in the
engine compartment the wire harness was replaced by 144 +/- wires. the bus would start but not
run, it was looked at by the bus , engine and transmission manufacturers for 3 weeks but they
could not find the problem, for Tower bus I had repaired all of the in bus tv’s so they asked me to
look at it ,. I had been working all day and when I went to the garage to look at it I asked for the
books , I asked the mechanic to please go and get a coffee , the closest coffee was 4 miles away. I
applied my knowledge of signals to the problem and by the time coffee arrived I had it running .
I have been fascinated by the quanta light emission from energy input into an electron and the
rise and collapse of energy shells.
