If you came here after reading the previous pages, you already know most, but not all, of my hobbies because I left some out.
I enjoy watching a good movie, listen to a large variety of music, loved fishing ( which became impossible being a single handed person ), still love travelling ( still allowed to drive a car ), love photography, good food ( especially Italian, Chinese, Indonesian and Thai ), computers, HAM gear, cars, space travelling, flying and a warm, not hot, climate.

MRE stands for Mercury Radio Electronics, the name I used for my self made pcb's for gear like stereocoders, FM broadcast transmitters, Limitter-compressors, Soundcontrol-units etc.
In the days I ran a FM pirate-station, I used the name "Mercury Radio"...it all started around 1972 - 1973..nostalgia.....
