Hello and Welcome to my Web Site. My name is David K. Smith and I live and work in the North of Wales, part of the United Kingdom. I was born in 1974 and from a very early age I have had a deep interest in physics and the world in which we live. These interests have mainly centred around Astronomy, Engineering, Computer Systems, Electronics and Mechatronic Systems.
I have been a Radio Amateur since 1992 (GW7MQE) and an active Electronics and Astronomy hobbyist since primary school.
After attending Deeside College and Liverpool John Moores University I attained the qualifications of ONC, HNC, BSc(HON) and an MSc in the fields of Engineering, Applied Electronics, Microelectronics and Information Systems.
Following this I have worked professionally as a test engineer, an electronics design engineer, an embedded systems developer and for five years I lectured in the fields of engineering, electronics and computer science.
At present I am employed as a Telemetry, Automation and Control Engineer for a large utility company.
If you have a question about any of the projects drop me a line:
