|He's Not Your Ordinary Handyman|
My Technical Background in Computers & Electronics
Hi, my name is Pete Federico and I am the High Tech Handyman. For about 21 years, I was employed in the electronics and aerospace field by companies such as Blonder Tongue Labs, RCA, GE, MartinMarietta, and LockheedMartin. My training and experience is mainly as an electronic technician in the engineering department for development of radio frequency amplifiers and microwave transmitters used in communications satellites.

I've been operating, building and programming computers since about 1982, resulting in over 20 years experience.
