So why am I so skittish?

Posted: 10 Apr 2018 05:45 AM PDT il

I've been an Amateur Radio operator for 40 years this year.

1) In that time I have built enough Heathkits to qualify for their Master
Builder status.
2) I have built an OHR 20/40 Classic, a PFR-3A and many other non-Heathkits
as well. Probably so many kits that I can't remember them all In all that
time, I have never built a kit that didn't work; or that I was not able to
get to function.
3) I have built a K1, K2, KX3 and K3.
4) I worked for 22 years for Sinar Bron, Inc. performing component level
repairs on multi thousand dollar professional studio strobes. I worked on
equipment that was powered both by 120V and 220V AC and that stored up to
6400 Joules of flash energy. I started out as a bench tech and worked my
way up to Service Manager after graduating from DeVry with a degree in
Digital Electronics.

So why does the thought of opening up and replacing the battery in my
daughter's iPhone 6 make my hands sweat? I think mainly, the thought of
screwing something up and disappointing a person that I would give up my
life for.

Ahhhh, the joys of Fatherhood.
