You learn and apply skills to the following and much more... feel free to add to the list.

Fabrication

Electronics and Electricity - stretching the boundaries of pushing current through that skinny little wire.
FM transmitting - more power Scotty, they need to hear me in the next town.
Audio editor - mix master DJ in the house

Totally agree Nodent. I'm enjoying my new hobby as well. I find I'm learning something new every day. But that's only because of the community here that are happy to share their knowledge, tips and secrets. .. :)
