Robert here. I'm restarting my electronics hobby after a long hiatus. I've been learning from many of the posts and hope to learn even more.

Hi All,
I'm a recently retired datacomms engineer. I can't imagine not tinkering with electronics, it's in my blood. After 43 years in the job, I'm going back to my roots and relearning the thermionic valve theory I soaked up at college and promptly forgot as silicon took over. Latest builds are a 6V6 SET amp with DET20 front end and a valve audio buffer using CV4079 valves that sounds great. It's up to the mk3 version, but I'm stymied by supply chain issues for the CCS. Best build is a modified Philips CD player with valve stage and modded dac. In my last ten years working ended up as a card changer rather than electronics engineer, so it's a steep learning curve getting the knowledge back.

Hi Everyone,
I'm Glenn Turner. I'm a retired EE with 40 years in the semiconductor/computer industry. I want to get back into tube electronics after many years because I love the sound that tubes provide. I'm currently trying to pull together the gear to work on them. My end goal is to learn and remain active in electronics. I look forward to participating in the forum. For any other car enthusiast in the forum I am also a street rodder.

Hello fellow enthusiasts.
My Name is Luther and I live in South Alabama. I have been in the industrial electronics industry servicing scales and scale systems for 38 years. Got my associate's degree in electronics training way back in 1984. Mark's videos, among others, piqued my interest in tube radio and amplifier restoration and repair. Since by the time I got into electronics, tubes were mostly a thing of the past I thought it would be something interesting to learn about. Now I can't get enough. Literally; I need help here! ;)

Hi all, other than a few high school classes I have no formal training in electronics. Back in the 70's I built the Dynaco ST120, PAT4 and FM5. This was my dream system thru college. Flash forward 50 years with the kids on their own I dusted off the old stuff and started dabbling again. Rebuilt the amp and preamp with help from Dan at update my Dynaco.com and now want to learn how to test as well as build a tube amp. Found Marks videos on oscilloscopes and was hooked. ;)

Hi,
My name is Doug and I am in the St. Louis MO area. My electronics training was in industrial automation but I have been starting to dabble in audio lately. I was just gifted with the amp from a console record player and I'm hoping to get it going without too much damage along the way.

Hi,
My name is Rob and I am a retired industrial electrician living on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. This new hobby started when I refurbished a couple of 70s Dual turntables, which led to three old console stereos and a couple of Tubelab amp builds. I just recently found Blueglow on YouTube and I’m enjoying the videos a lot. Thanks Mark the videos are great!
