Remember the post where i mentioned about creating your own blog using the free Here, one of my ERG members Humphrey Kimathi from Kenya had taken the action and successfully built a repair blog. This is the email that i got from him:

Hi Jestine,

I am a keen follower of your blog and may I say that you have really made me razor sharp in electronics troubleshooting.  THANK YOU BROTHER. As if that in not enough your tips how to handle day to day life issues are also very real, remember new year resolution article you send us every beginning of the year? And also articles on self improvement are really very encouraging. Last but not the least you introduced to us on how one can start his own blog and I have just started one and is now up and running.

I have published a few articles and the latest one which I would like to share with my fellow members of your blog is making a homemade fly back tester using readily available strip board and its working for me very well. You are most welcome to visit my young blog born August2010 and feel free to give your comments and advice according.”


Kind regards

Humphrey Kimathi

    HI Muhammad,

    Many of our analog meters have a reverse output from the probes. You can use another digital voltmeter to confirm the polarity.
