    Hello everyone.

    My name is Miguel, I live in Cuba and I love the world of electronics. I hope I can learn and help about this subject in this Forum. Being myself a Spanish speaker, I apologise on my future spelling or grammar errors. I'll be reading the forum in order to look for some interesting circuit or idea.

    Best regards

    Miguel

    Hello Miguel.

    Your English seems fine. What are your areas of interest?

    Hi Miguel.

    I'll echo GonzoEngineer's comment. Your English sounds (reads) fine. (Perhaps it's a little formal, but certainly easily understood)

    Considering I speak 2 words of Spanish, about 5 of French, and about 10 of Mandarin, I appreciate anyone who can learn a different language.

    I will admit to knowing little about Cuba other than folk-law, what I see in the media, and its geographical location.

    How easy is it for you to obtain electronic components? I can imagine (maybe incorrectly) that export restrictions from one of your close neighbours may have an impact in this area?

    Thanks to all of you for your welcome.

    Well, I found this forum looking in the web for a constant output amplier in the AF band. I've seen some threads of interest and I'm reading them. Maybe I find something to solve my problem.

    Very difficult indeed. Almost every single component I get, It's retrieved from old equipment. There are no shops countrywide dedicated to sell electronics component except some very specialized and oriented to sell to state enterprises, not to common people. And yes, the problems with our northern neighbour do not help in any way.

    No doubt on that, they are the best in the world. By the way, I do not smoke. :D

    Best regards

    Miguel

    I am a "Neighbor to the North", and let me say that I am not happy with our situation.

    I don't agree with my Government's actions toward Cuba.....If I was President I would open all trade and relationship possible with Cuba.

    (BTW.....I will trade you some electronics components for soma Havana Cigars!):D

    Let me guess, their buses have moved into Florida?

    I note that one candidate is also promising moonbases.

    Lets see if they echo it in the next state...
