Well, these days I spend most of my time doing photography. Look here for example. I guess I am increasingly into web design, like here or here or here.

Still, I’ve been an electrical engineer since 1980 or so; and my history in radio communications goes back to 1969 when I worked putting in community radio stations in remote sites. That was called Radio Kenomadiwin. Google that if you want some history in how communities of interest were formed before facebook.

Along the way, I was audio-visual technician & computer engineer (working for Control Data back in the day in their IBM plug-compatible group). I picked up diplomas in electronics, and degrees (BSc Physics, MSc in electrical engineering, and an MBA). I got licensed as a P.Eng. back in Canada, where I’m from, and in the US as a PE. Now I’m retired. During the journey, I figured out I had the creds to join Mensa, but I never applied. Maybe I’ll get around to that some day. I did become a Senior Member of IEEE a while back.

So now I get to sit down and write every once in a while. I have other sites where I write about other things, like photography. Here, I’ll write about paging systems and physics.

It’s a pity about paging falling on hard times; I know I’m in a minority in saying this; but it’s true. There is relatively little serious material in the literature about paging, or more specifically, about real simulcast systems.

Maybe I can change that here. Better yet, and I know you’re all out there; the folks still working on paging, or who’ve worked on it in the past, can contribute here too.

Then perhaps the world will “face paging”.
