well not far of now 2 weeks, i will be there from when they open the gates till 11:30 a  group of us go and have a BBQ by the lake till 1/2pm then go home, we been doing this for a few years, its great to talk about the day and show off what bargin you got, and allow all the traffic pass by.

if you leave befoe 12 and try and drive home the motorway becomes a carpark half way home so thats what we wait till 1 or 2pm to leave as it isnt so bad then.

Might be a good time to get lunch before the drive home. Shal find something in Wyong. Fish and Chip shop there is awesome...

wow thats great mic will be good to see you again

This time I am going to try not to buy any cheap antenna's! the dual band mobile I bought at Wyong for $40 has finally expired just short of 12months old!

It was a a bad sign when on the drive home down the freeway it folded it self over, then about a month later the fold over snapped when I hit a tree, I welded the thing back to together, then the rod got rusty, I cleaned it, now the loading coil inside the base has rusted & won't make good contact inside the unit  :'(

That will teach me to buy cheap copy's of antenna,s next time I will buy the top shelf products  ;)
