  I am a retired EE. I worked at RCA Laboratories until GE bought it and closed it. I have always combined electrical and mechanical projects. I spent the last several years there as an in-house consultant on instrumentation and control, and as part of a team that designed and built specialty equipment not commercially available. My particular specialty was digital electronics, which I learned before integrated circuits were available. I built the first digitally-controlled machine at the Labs, and that pegged me as the digital expert. My ability to make an RS-232 connection work led me into the consultancy. I had no more formal training in DSP than I did in digital circuits. (In college, we studied the phantastron and bootstrap sweep generator, with tubes, of course.) My last employer was Siemens Corporate Research.
When I retired, I bought a DSK as a toy, and came to comp.dsp to learn how to use it and to better understand what DSP is all about. I found that although I has much to learn, there was also much that I could teach those just starting out. I like the people there and became a regular.
