25 years of radio electronics, starting with CB, then onto C&G in amateur Radio, then onto Spectrum analysis, then onto computers, basically everything that I didn't need for Electrical, but that's life.

Sounds an interesting career, why the change? Why not study the digital technology instead. I've always wondered about getting into the electronics side.
 
Welcome Dave, I'm in the same boat as you dude but quite a bit younger, just started as an electrician not long ago , Hopefully we can help each other out. Thanks for signing up

regards Luke (admin)

good luck gentlemen. Ive got a lot of respect for older people retraining, as it must get harder, the longer your school days are behind you. just think, at 56yuo have still got minimum 9 years work before retirement. all the best
