About Me

If you’re looking for the best way to learn about electronics, you’ve come to the right place! My name is Cam, born in 1969 in Australia, and I’ve built this website with the sole purpose to help beginners learn about electronics.

I’ve been building electronic projects since I was 10. I started with my Dad’s help (he was an electrician, so you can say it’s in the family) and my first major kit – the Science Fair Globe Patrol Shortwave & AM Radio kit which came out in 1977 – was put together with his help.

So I built electronic kits, then moved on to projects from magazines (etching the circuit boards and buying the parts), then at age 15 I taught myself digital electronics – logic gates, flip flops, binary counters etc – which allowed me to design and build a few digital projects. This set the foundation for me to quickly progress on to building a Z80 Microcomputer, at age 16.

I then went to college to obtain an electronics technician certificate, then I focused on assembly programming for a while, mainly in games, and these days I work on various projects as a contract electronics technician.

I still remember how happy I was when I built my first kit. How much I loved it – both the learning and building. I made something with my own hands! And it worked! A whole new world opened before my eyes. I have created this website to share that world with as many people as possible. No matter how old or young you are, electronics are both fun and useful to learn, and I’m here to show you how.

Please feel free to browse around the site, and if you have any questions I haven’t answered already, or if there’s something you want me to explain, don’t hesitate to contact me. You want to learn about electronics, and I’d love to tell you all about it.
