25+ years real-time software development and support on a variety of Mini-computers, microprocessors and microcontrollers. It all began with Univac 1108 Fortran IV, Data General Nova and Eclipse assembler, punch cards and paper tape with detours through DEC PDP and VAX, Honeywell DDP-516, Lockheed LEC-16, HP 1000, Intel, Motorola, TI, Zilog, and now Microchip assembler, C, and C++ on the Digilent chipKIT UNO Arduino clone.
I hold an Amateur Radio Extra class license - KE4MIQ. I recently began experimenting with Software Defined Radio(SDR) based on a DVB-T USB dongle using gqrx, fldigi, and websdr. I used wxPerl to develop a scanner front end to gqrx and a raw audio display function(sample snapshot shown above). My new toys include the ZZRX-40 direct conversion receiver and the BITX40 40 meter transceiver kits.
My degree is in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech.
I am now retired and learning linux, chipKIT UNO32, Perl and wxPerl and enjoying the Perl Monks community.
