Does your electronics hobby help prepare you for a disaster?
As an electronics enthusiast (and possibly a licensed ham), you have a skill set that lends itself to recovering or assisting during any number of disasters, but you have to plan ahead and practice those skills so that you can bring them to bear when they're needed. Have you ever been involved in a situation where your electronics skills came into play during a disaster? Are you part of an organization where those skills may be called upon to assist?  

And, of course, we don't want to pass on an opportunity to thank our sponsors! Be sure to check 'em out!

That's It. Enjoy!

Calculating Current Limiting Resistor Values for LED Circuits

The key to maximizing LED life is limiting the current that runs through it. This is frequently done with a simple resistor whose value is calculated using Ohm's Law. This article reviews how to apply Ohm's Law to single and clustered LED circuits. I have also provided an Excel spreadsheet to simplify - and speed up - the process.
