Yeah, but instead of biting your face it'll blow up your windows and nick your girlfriend.

Curse you, Hereford!

A fecking DMU, what's the point? The current highest bidder seems to have a sas and landrover fixation. It's about as restricted as a 353 and the rest of them, can probably be bought on the open market.. ? It would be interesting to see if this guy could get hold of a brick for it.

Half the manuals flying around on there have got to be restricted at least. Oh well, it gives the monkies something to do on quiet days.

I know i might be going back in to the "old days" here, but is that not the type of kit we were meant to destroy along with buring the code books/ cei / batco and so on in the not so cool event the bad guys were about to capture us etc?

"Old days"? In the "old days," the CEI was called "DFC_RANTS" :D

Just typed 'Bowman' into Ebay and got this. :eek:

Well, you tell me.


Edited to add:

A PRR!! A bloody PRR! How in the name of hell do they expect to get away with this?!

Both the clansman items are available on the surplus market, they're not exactly two-a-penny but aren't as rare as your man is letting on either.
The distinctive sound of 353 talking to 353 in the green is now fairly common on 6M.

PRRs have been available to purchace since before anyone in green ever got to play with one. Straight out the backdoor of the factory and, I suspect, probably individual items or batches which have failed QC.

If these muppets want to try and sell this sh1t on ebay, they'll be getting a one way sweaty briefing from the men in suits who aren't really there. They'll outbid anyone on ebay for any equipment thats likely to aid terrorists in getting our comsec. This guy obviously doesn't value freedom and the ability to walk

You'll probably find some of the stuff available from this mob a giggle.
Combat Radio

All quite legal and above board, well selling it is anyway.. Using some of it now.....

Edit. Or, for further larks try Army Radio where, amongst the other odds and sods you'll find a few more '319 EMU's some of which are still attatched to the 319. And you'll get a fivers change from a grand too....

As I said in a previous thread regarding E-bay. They have selective hearing and dont listen to serious concerns about what people sell.

Not really as far as I can remember, things would be broken in order of importance - starting with things which you won't see photographs of anywhere, or shouldn't. The DMU is useless on it's own in terms of comsec. If you had time, once everything else was gone, then carry on and kill the sets along with the rover and deny the enemy any kit at all, but they'd probably have just bought one off the back of a lorry, or indeed made one themselves.

TA Sig is right, even if you were geeky enough to have a 353 and the DMU along with all the cabling required to connect them, theyd still be two heavy paperweights when it comes to actually using them.

And as for actually getting a brick, well what good would that do him?
 
#19
As I mentioned a bit further up... If you listen to the 6M amateur band on a weekend morning, you'll discover that quite a few people are geeky enough to have all the bits and bobs they need to get this kit operating.

Not so much what you would call "walts" more your cardigan wearing, biscuit eating, tropo forecast watching antenna heads.

Well then they could put on all their SAS kit mit invis cloak, sneak into a sigs loc and steal a fill for it.. Then they can listen to bored squaddies talking on the vhf net. Maybe. The main concern about them getting a brick is that it would mean that somebody, somewhere had cocked up badly. Think if one turned up on ebay there would be MP's looking for it..

One thing this does demonstrate though is that there are people who are actively interested in this kit, and may well be monitoring the rad net for whatever they can find - probably out of interest/boredom. So while the red mennace etc are all 'theoretical' at least you can see that people closer to home are also interested. So mind your comsec.

Sometimes it's entertaining to scan through various HF freqs when we're not planned for it and see what can be found - should be able to get the world cup on ex this summer, but I'd rather be getting a brew on. What was that rumour of BT experiment set up to access phone network via HF? Not running anymore mind from what I heard.
