He has many achivements to his credit; From converting a Thomas Saf-T-Liner, a flat-nosed diesel school bus into a family camper To a DIY Op-Amp Hot Tub Temperature Controller.
Look at Mr. Jake von Slatt, How he done things. This is what we learn from him …

Jump into the problem and solve it, See the way a Creative DIY Enthusiast solves an automation problem at home. The Job gets done this way, such seasoned people are rare. Now the idea is …
Think – Deliberate – Draw – Build – Test – Install
We all get stuck at the ‘Deliberate’ step, If its team work, a few should leave the desk and the conference rooms and start Prototyping and Simulating. This helps understanding a tough problem. Better still find a fast and simple solution.
Then there is that Sensational Site That Jake Built – The Steampunk Workshop. This is where it all Happens.
Besides classical functions and dB conversions, RadioCalc includes a converter of Power to field strength commonly used for EMC/EMS test-set-up. Also impedance can be represented as a function of reflection coefficient (somehow like an electronic Smith-chart). This and many other functions are obtained by clicking into the arrow of the “Conversion off” window.
Radiocalc – Convertisseur Radio Universel
Thanks to RadioCalc the different dB charts are obsolete by computing the ratios of Power (W) or Voltages (V) according to dB = 10*log(P2/P1) ou dB = 20*log(V2/V1).
Just for a trial : type 100/10 (or just 10) and push the dB button as the ‘W’ mode is chosen, the result will be 10 dB, then choose the ‘V’ mode by clicking in the V button (in the Quick dB window) push again dB, the result is now 20 dB.
