Purchases for the new season....

Marked as dispatched within about 15 minutes of ordering - not bad service! 

...and with little chance that I'm going to break the back of my electrical installation this winter (or even start it!) I was looking for a way of quickly and simply boosting the range of my hand held VHF...  first step is one of these...  this screws onto the stub aerial socket of the hand held and presents as a standard BNC/coax type socket..  all I need now is a standard VHF aerial, which can either go up the mast (ready for the proper VHF), or more likely, mounted on the push-pit board for the time being...


  1. Hehe, that's made me smile... arn't Hawk just over the bridge from Sparrow? It'll of done a 200mile round trip by the time it gets to you :) :) :)

    1. Blimey - you're right - that's the place we went to when you needed a replacement for the piece on your aerial...? So Hayling -> Kent -> Back to me... :o))
