Though I've been on this forum since getting my iPad2 on release day, I never stopped to enter a formal hello to the moderators and users. I'm relatively new to Apple products, though my computer experience goes back to the mid-70s, when anything smaller than a desk was a "microcomputer." My screen name, thehamguy1, acknowledges both my ham radio hobby (since 1957) and that someone already took "thehamguy" back when I was deciding what to be called on various fora. I've too many hobbies, actually, but riding my motorcycle and camping vie for equal time with computer play. I live in Iowa, slightly east of the center of the U.S. Hello world!
