My name is Ami, I am thirteen, a student, and will soon be starting studies in electronics at school, I would eventually like to work as an electronic technician, or designer like my late Dad who tragically passed away this year.

I used to help Dad with his hobby projects, and I learned some of the basics about the way components work, and more importantly, how to be safe with electricity.

I did a few projects, including a metronome and a photographic exposure timer, but would really like to get into radio construction, (like Dad), as well as learning how to build good audio amplifiers from discreet components, (valves as well as transistorized), as I would like to understand the design process and not just assemble a board with a chip amp.

My late dad's legacy on this is that I probably won't ever want for any test equipment or parts as I probably have all I will ever need already.

I would like to start with something like improving the little radio that I built last year that worked well with only one transistor in a regenerative design, that drove a set of homemade earphones. I would like to learn to make it into a simple portable loudspeaker set so that it could be used to listen to my favorite station in comfort, that only transmits on AM bcb in this area.

With this in mind, I joined a few forums to get myself into something a little more interactive than just reading up on this stuff in books and on the "how to" type websites.

And that boys, (and girls?) is why I'm here!

Hi Ami, Welcome to the forums. Lots of friendly and helpful folks here. Sorry to hear about your father, but you have a great advantage having test equipment. Good luck with your future projects. I blew up my first transistor at about your age. They were rather costly back then (nearly 60 years ago).

Good listening
