Just an FYI, the new IOS 5 for iPhones now allows you to create custom vibrating ring tones.  You can create different ones and assign individual ones to different contacts on your phone.

For instance, I created one that vibrates in CW my wife's initials, and one that spells "dad" for when my father calls me.

I'm starting to put in my friend's callsigns as custom vibrating ringers, and assigning them.

Since I usually leave my iPhone on silent when I'm at work, I'm starting to be able to tell who's calling me without even looking at the screen, or bothering co-workers.

73's!

   Heard they were coming up with an app that allows one to listen in on ham frequencies?  Might be a great way to promote the hobby!

Heh, or not.
