What is trending in Electronics Today?

Welcome to my Web Site. I have outlined my electronics experience below, and although it appears to be quite extensive, there are many areas in both domestic and industrial fields that I am still learning and I’m sure this Blog will test me further. If you have a question, I will attempt to get the correct answer for you as soon as I can.


Please Note ****

I have recently retired from my full-time business: Dontronics.com and started up this page as a retirement project on the 7th of February 2017 at the age of 74.

Please don’t be mislead. The main reason for creating this page is to generate a small retirement income.

Dontronics is a small family owned business run by Don McKenzie and operated from Tullamarine Australia.

Dontronics.com was first registered as a business name in 1995 however, we have been selling Electronics on the internet since 1993. I started my first business in 1964 as an electrical contractor in Rainbow Vic. Australia, trading as McKenzie Woodhall, & Chapple.

Currently, I  am providing product support, and my youngest daughter Penny is handling all on-line sales. We basically operate 365 days a year and answer all emails usually within a few hours (more often within minutes) between the two of us. I am an early riser and start around 05:00 (local time), and Penny may still be still working at 23:00 at night.

Cheers Don…
