In all my time in amateur radio I have never once experimented with microprocessor programming and I have done very little “digital” design. This seems to be a gap in my knowledge, although I am still not really interested, preferring RF design, especially QRP. I must say I remain very impressed with Wolf’s (W5OLF) tiny WSPR-AXE-CW beacon: this goes to show just how much can be achieved with so little physically. Maybe this is a whole area I should embrace? The trouble is it is impossible to be an expert at lots of things, unless you are very bright. Certainly I do not consider myself a polymath!
One can not do it all. You have to choose somewhere in a hobby with so many aspects. You made a great choose ! QRP is fun indeed.
And…you’re never too old to learn. 🙂
Have a great day,
