I used to work as an electronics engineer for amongst others the BBC, and for a short time the IBA, where I gained experience with satellite installation (from the days of ECS, then via Marco Polo, right up to Astra). Retired early I am now looking for other opportunities.

Having just returned from a short trip to Spain, I covered my expenses by delivering a boot load of electronic items that were too valuable and fragile to be entrusted to "a man in a white van", and where I also collected payment and advised on aspects of installation at the same time.

It occurred to me that there may be a business (or at least a hobby) repeating the trip! I drive a large car alone or with a single passenger, so have good luggage space with the back seats down! Also a private car is not a commercial vehicle with the inevitable limitations, customs, and other restrictions that these usually have when being driven abroad!

With 38 years experience driving all over Europe from Eindhoven to Iberia and Bornholm to Brussels I am in the fortunate position that I can drop everything at a moments notice. Being located in Sussex and a Channel Tunnel regular I can be driving in France within three hours, and well into Spain, Portugal, or Germany the next day. If it's urgent or unusual then I'm your man!

Anyone need my help or know someone who does? ;-)

Please email reply to behappytv -at- btinternet dot com



A rather unusual man is seeking employment in the electronics or IT sector - probably on an ad-hoc, job by job basis.

60 years old with an inherited disability (which doesn’t show on the surface ;-).  Presently bored stiff at home. 

Educated to Ph.D. level, where my speciality was SHF radar, I was previously employed as an engineer by BBC television where I designed and later repaired sophisticated equipment to component level. I can obviously read and draw circuit diagrams, and love driving so distance is of little object. My ideal job would be helping to design and test a new electronic or computer related product, or perhaps travelling to service electronic equipment. 

In the recent past I have been running a small computer and networking installation business where I specialised in the extension and wireless adaptation of existing computer networks, together with manufacturing and modifying specialised computers for broadcasting.

I am able to work alone where I am known to be my own worst critic, delivering work that is of above average quality and reliability - it is not unknown for me to work for 36 hours without a break when a job has to be finished. On the other hand, when needed, I can set up temporary equipment using the best of British “bodging” to save time and money (remembering health and safety requirements, of course)!

If you have a job (possibly temporary, probably unusual) that needs a motivated, articulate, but quality conscious manager, organiser, or designer, or even well paid dogsbody, please get in touch by email at "box123 at horstedkeynes. com" .

I am quite prepared to work informally for a time to allow us an opportunity to get to know each other.
