I'd like to join in welcoming all the new people, and also encourage any of you that haven't joined up yet to please do so!!

Another thing, it would be great for you guys that haven't done so to send the Webmaster or one of us moderators your picture, so we can put it up in the "What Do You Look Like?" thread with the rest of our handsome and beautiful members.

Patrick here. I live in the southern part of West Virginia. I've been signed up here for a few months now. So far just reading posts and trying to pick up on a few things.

I'm new to the profession. I just passed my apprentice test a couple of months ago. (Anotherone getting a late start in this field, 39.) Im now working on my Journeyman license. I didn't realize it at the time, but the 2 year program I went thru in vocational school for Electronic Technology qualified me to take the Journeyman test in WV.

Anyway, I think this is a great site and I'm glad I found it!
