About me


About me...

What can I say I love electronic engineering. I'm very enthusiastic about projects and build stuff for work and home. I always love to solve technical problems, I think it's the best way to learn. N1IR is my amateur radio call sign but everyone calls me Mr J. I have a wonderful job teaching electronics engineering in a vocational school, a lot of the projects I do design are targeted for the student. I do occasional accept contract work, but I really prefer just working down in my basement lab on some of my projects. I'm also an avid do it yourself'er. I fix my own cars, remodeling kitchens, pluming, electrical, carpentry. Some of my hobbies included but not limited to amateur radio, flying (student private pilot) and camping.
