They have perfectly good kit. Infact they have a rebro det which currently has two vhf sets wired together in serial using a gutted pressell box (don10 is so last year), as the IBRU (bulit out of spare parts and random bits of metal the techs found) wasn't rebroadcasting manpack transmissions.

Then we get onto 'Flood' the Switch.

Perfectly good kit.

No idea what the original comment said prior to editing but I won't be coming to Hull the w/e as my wife has refused to sign my leave pass.. (something about finishing some DIY projects that I have been dodging for the last two years...but i'm not under the thumb (honest)!

Polar69 - have you heard anything about what we are meant to be doing for our Trade ex yet? It's all gone quiet in Leeds!

Digital kit? Oh you mean all those buttons, keypads etc yeah we must throw them into the back of the nearest FFR and leave it there, don't want to mess with that sort of thing.

Truth be told we all know that the more wires, lights, dials, bits 'n pieces the cooler the kit is, and you can get plenty of that sort of thing inside a Rover. Well you probably have plenty of space in your trousers for all that kit if the rumours are true...

If you have a look down inglemire/englemire (spelling?) lane I think you will find the 4 legged friends.

Jolly good. Expansion can never be a bad thing, especially with the historical yeomanry links in hull.
What kit will they have? Polar69 do you think this will badly effect your recruitment?
