    MrRonFL joined the forum in June 2000. He's been an electronics technician for over 40 years of combined Navy and civilian experience, with the last 20 years primarily focused on life-safety and security electronics technologies. He is a level II NICET-certified fire alarms technician, and a senior technician for a large regional fire protection company.

    Heís lived and worked in North Central FL for the last 30 years, but has worked in a variety of technical and construction industries across a chunk of the southeast. Over the years his technical skills have been used to service power generation systems, HVAC controls, access control systems, CCTV, and audio systems.

    He is active in an international medieval historical society, and enjoys researching the arts and technologies of bygone ages, as much as puzzling out the quirks of modern technology.

    Heís spent much of his life learning the skill sets to be a self-reliant homeowner, and enjoys the challenge of helping others learn their own skills. He has an extensive accumulated technical library, and a practiced set of research skills.

    His favorite DIY project is the historical charcoal-fired metal casting setup that he uses for demonstrations and teaching. Several times a year, he spends several weekends casting dozens of small parts for further use in his historical projects, while teaching the public about a craft thatís become seldom seen on a day-to-day basis.

    The most useful revelation heís ever found has been the understanding that knowing the right question to ask is often as valuable as having an instant answer.
