yeah when the inversion or ducting is on they do travel long ways.

mine is a commercial uhf radio so its actually 25w so a lic is needed!

25w makes it good to squash the knobs that frequent the air waves.

where are you lukas?

Yep Busso

Yeah in busso street.
I thought you might have had a licence to do that. 25w certainly makes a big diff over the 5w. Do you receive the repeaters very well? What's the go with getting a licence?

Sherbert the 3200 is a good one. They survive pretty well in most fourbies. Tough little buggers.

The manpack!

Fri, 2007-03-23 07:24

Get your self a manpack if you can find one!
A mate had one and instead of the handheld one it is a normal one but with a gel pack of batteries. Lasts for days without recharging and has the benefits of an external antenna and more power.

Know a bit. Used to be right into it and have mates in perth that are all two way nerds. A couple are coms techs and can program radio's. They have channel 50 in their radios so no one can hear them when they are cruising.

You got selcall street?
