  1. A mate of mine moved from WA to QLD and took his entire collection with him. He checked it out before leaving here and found he had 3 months to change his licence over once he moved into a house. It took them 3 or 4 months to even find a house. Once they did, he did the paperwork and it was all sorted pretty easy and quick.
  2. Apparently there is a 6 year phase in period, so we can keep using the old 40 channel units for 6 more years.
  3. Here you go mate: http://www.dealextreme.com/p/ultrafire-wf-008-recoil-thrower-cree-q5-wc-230-lumen-led-flashlight-1-18650-2-cr123a-22934 I'm not sure about the one you posted the link to. Looks interesting though.
  4. I'd forgotten about this thread. I converted my SL170 some weeks ago now and it is WAY better than it used to be. And that is saying something, because it was an excellent light before. It was definitely worth the conversion. :D :D
  5. Yeah. BB I well remember the days when I could "Skip talk" to people in Newcastle or Sydney from Perth and on a good night I could talk to Kiwis too. And it would be as clear as if they were one street away. Before my Uniden XL520PRO I had a Pierce-Simpson Cub. That was a great little radio.
  6. Very true. Sometimes I hit the scan button or manually go through all the channels and it is a rare thing for there to be anything on more than about 2 channels. Generally the road channel (CH40) has chatter and maybe another one and that's it. I mostly just leave mine on channel 40 anyway.
  7. Remember when the old AM CB's went from 18 channels to 40? The first 18 channels of the 40 channel units were the same, so people slowly changed over during the following 5 to 10 years. I have a perfectly good 40CH Uniden AM unit sitting in its box somewhere here. Barely used too.
  8. I hadn't heard about this. So will it be possible to upgrade older model CB's? My Uniden is about 5 or 6 years old, so an upgrade of it would be preferable to replacing it.
  9. GME mate. I have a little 3dB (60cm) and a 9dB (about 1.2m) for long road trips. When swapping between them I really notice the extra range of the taller one. But the little one is fine for daily use. It is good enough for a range of about 5km. The bigger one is good for nearly 15km.
  10. I have a P4-250. Good torch too, except the sliding focus doesn't stay set. It would be much better with a twist focus.
  11. I have one of these and can happily recommend it.
  12. Pics never do them justice do they? You should have noticed a marked increase in light output. Did you?
  13. Sounds like a plan Brendan. Especially since you didn't make it to the last one. :lol: Sneaky suggested the gun club as a possible venue a while ago.
  14. Really? I was in there last week, but never thought to ask about filters. I have to take my Ruger in for Doug to work on, so might ask then.
