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 and I am currently playing with the Ten-Tec Rebel 506 Open Source tranceiver based on the chipKIT UNO32 Arduino clone. 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.
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.
