    Hello! I wanted to introduce myself.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to do it. But anyhow I have lurked on here for quite a long time, and I love this site! You guys are great! I have played around in the industrial electronics field for some several decades now, and I love it.

    I am both a Navy and Army Veteran, experience with Terrier and Hawk missile systems.

    I am trying to get back into the field professionally. I have enrolled in CIE’s AAS degree program, this month, as I have taken a course from them in the past and was happy with it.

    More recently, with my new employer, I have been assigned the task of re-constructing several old PCB’s from the 1980’s. I am clearly not an engineer, or even have much recent experience with modern electronics. Most of what I know is dated to the 1980’s but they felt that made me perfect for the job of reverse engineering these systems and building new ones.

    As I make my way through these things, I will undoubtedly have tons of questions, mostly on identification of old “house marked” components.

    From what I have read thus far, you guys seem to be the best around for making something out of nothing.

    Congrats on a great site, and I am very happy to make your acquaintance.
