Re: Any experience with these radios

It would be handy to have a radio guy on the forum, but I think most people just don't have the time to be the guy. I've confirmed from Dirk on the 4x4 Community forum that the CTCSS tones used on the three frequencies are not prescribed by ICASA, merely suggested, so we could always pick one of the...

Re: Any experience with these radios

Compared to the more expensive Zarteks (larger with bigger antennas) the com8 doesn't have the greatest range, but it talks to my dual band VHF / UHF handheld radio.

Re: Vehicle mobile comms, what do you use?

I have VHF and UHF handheld with magnet mount on the Patrol. And a spare hand held for anyone travelling with me. Never considered the 10m band as it seems there are too few people using it.

I also have my ham radio license, but I have never had use for it for convoy / 4x4 comms.

Re: Off road replacement bumpers and rock sliders.

Looks great Paul, it looks like the rear tyre is on a swing bracket now? What do these cost? Ernest, I got a great deal from David Marais for his bumper second hand. I have the swing arm for the tyre and another one in the store room for the left hand side that holds 60l of fuel. It has space for a...

Off road replacement bumpers and rock sliders.

I've been busy doing some upgrades the last few weeks and thought I'd do a little subtle brag. The rear bumper off road replacement bumper was installed a few weeks ago. 20190407 Nissan Patrol BZT rear bumper IMG_20190407_151450.jpg Thank you David Marais for all the hard work on a Sunday. I would l...

It took a while but finally the rear sway bar is quiet. Thanks for the replacements rubbers.

Re: Seat Covers

I've had the Escape gear seat covers for about a year now. Very happy with them. They seem to keep the spills from leaking through but still breathe enough for my sweaty back to stay comfortable.
