Netjies, Alex!

Dieselfde kan nie van die Ridders van die Skadubome oppad soontoe gese word nie. Hulle sit altyd en geld kollekteer vir belaglike oortredings op die mees belaglike plekke, so wees maar wakker.
Ons moet maar wakker slaap en die 2-rigting radios gebruik om mekaar te waarsku...

Nope - weg gegee :imsorry:

Ek glo nie die ontvanger daarvan het dit gebruik nie - sal uitvind of hy dit dalk wil teruggee...

Re: Forum 10 year birthday - Gauteng 27 April 2019

Is there still a spot open for me? I've forgotten how to operate that short stick next to the gear lever :rolleyes:

PS: Just for the day, and I understand I will have to carry my own costs. We'll be two adults and a kid...

Re: Led Hoof ligte

Hypothetically speaking now... Does the car body play a role in the quality of radio frequency reception. In other words the teeth that bite into the body, does that form part of the "circuit" to get the best radio reception. Yes, that creates the ground plane for the monopole antenna. The wire goi...

Re: Vehicle mobile comms, what do you use?

Oelie, as a radio ham you should know that UHF is for talking to planes and 29 MHz is only for people who miss their CB radios! :rolling:

PS: A handheld VHF radio costs the same as a Bosvark, and the annual license fees are negligible via 4x4 Community Forum or ORRA...

Re: Led Hoof ligte

Cedric, pop into a decent car audio installer and they'll sort you out quickly. If you really, really want to muck around by yourself there are some things you can try. My guess is that the earth for the headlights is not up to scratch. The radio/amp did not complain before, so that suggests that th...

But I suppose low absorbence = low soiling? :think:
