Hi,
   It does seem a waste of a resource that could be of more benefit to more people than a metal recycler.
Maybe the visual trauma to potential hoons as a deterrent effect is the aim?
Cheers

Gentelmans agreement, and if they want they can look up what type of license you have. Its a really good format not like the old UHF 40 channel where language and crap goes on.

All good at the moment, lucky to have a very low noise floor and the elevated postion gives me great recieve and transmit. Might have to buy an amplifier when funds permit

Yeah, Hope you all have a great day.
And a shout out to those that no longer have their Dad in their lives or unable to see their children, we are thinking of you Dad's as well.
Take care.

I met Malcolm Douglas' brother at Chevs the other day.... funny bloke...

Oh he has a nice car too ordered 2yrs ago, and cost over $200k
A mid engine Corvette.. lives on a dirt road too LOL!


.


He knew nothing about it - had it a month lol
Not what engine, how many gears, where the spare is lolol.... But did manage to get the roof off and worked out how to store it. We workd out its 8speed

Swears a lot, nothing like Mal appeared on tele...


Interesting story on its evolution.. started as a Commodore ute!

FFS, a typical September day, warm, light winds, clouds, vapour trails,
And the Chemtrail nut jobs post on every fb group about how "They" are spraying us.

Yeah, noticed a few up there yesterday.

Which is a bit strange, as an old pilot mate reckons that if vapor trails hang around, it's supposed to mean rain withign 24-48 hours, but BoM reckons nothing for the next week ???

My knee was also whinging last night which usually also means the same, so I guess we'll see ???

Yep, my knees started arching Wednesday morning.
Thursday before last, 16 Black Cockatoo's flew north over home.
Yet the Sallywattle isn't  flowering & the ants aren't climbing.
A bag of mixed signals.
Hmm

Somebody at my wife’s (women only) gym spotted this and shared it. It made me chuckle.  :D

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Sweet story....

After an epic revival effort in his shed, Glenn Torrens takes his farm-find Project Bombodore - a 1979 Holden Commodore Sport - on a big road trip.
He has a mission: to take the car back to where it was sold 43 years ago and find the original owner. Join us to see how it all pans out...
