Re: Kelmscott Bushfire Various

Wouldnt it be better they are not on the fire ground ? I mean the fewer people in danger, the better. Sure what ch10 are doing is misleading but it is safer. I was "closer" to the fire and we are still several km's from the actual fireground or the control point. It's terribly misleading. So is eve...

Re: Police & St John Ambulance

Police was a bit of a loss, they had a great network around metro perth for analouge comms and alot of info was (untill towards the end) said over the radio. SJA on the otherhand did everything via MDT so you never got any information anyway. Iv also heard rumours that FESA are going to follow and g...

Re: Laptop mount for VE Commodore

The WAPOL ones are supplied by motorola, as part of the screen and PC. So id imagine theyd be hard to get and expensive to purchase a single one.

Re: Digital transmissions on the WAERN

the Tait 2020's are the older radio that have been taken out and the Tait TM8260's (dual radio system with 1 head, green = VHF Mid & VHF Hi, Yellow = VHF Hi & UHF) have taken their place. I dont believe these are capable of digital & encrypted communications. so either they are being replaced or the...

Re: Poor juliet charlie 102

Now you mention it, Iv heard of a few turbo-timers that have this feture, wired to the handbreak the engine can run for a timed or untimed period and if the handbreak is taken off (without the keys in the ignition) the engine turns off.
