New Member - feeling out of my depth

Postby dhp1975 » Mon Aug 14, 2017 3:07 am

Hi

New member and proud owner of TS-251A. Proud but also realising the depth of my ignorance. I'd be incredibly grateful if you could read and address my questions. I'm not scared of reading through the manuals, but I've found that it is hard going since each page sends me off on a web search to try to understand the terminology. As such my questions may simply require someone to prompt me to read a targeted link or two which is absolutely fine by me - I don't want to put people out explaining every last basic premise to me!

Thank you and in hope!
