Just a quick question regarding radios. Is this something that's sensible to have, and if so any recommendations?

Most of us have them, very useful when in convoy.

Binatones are quite popular - I use the Terrain 750 and Rosso I think the 950....

That's a bit posh, hand free 2-way radio!! Is it voice activated? I have had both door handles replaced so no more sad pitted aluminium showing. Went through MOT no problem but my mechanic says it needs a bit of work when I get back from tour. Radiator support bracket/panel and rear springs getting a bit corroded as is the exhaust. Orkney atmosphere I'm afraid. Considering I've not had to have anything done like that before can't complain. Paul and I have two way radios, really for when we are on the boat but hopefully we can synchs channels. Route cards are a great idea. Over and out!!

Hey Dianne- I sent you a text; have you still got the same number..?

No- it's not voice activated; the term 'hands free' was perhaps a bit imaginative; I've broken out the Push To Talk switch, power input, and speaker output to a connector, so I can mount the radio on the windscreen high up, behind the rear view mirror.

I can then plug it 'into' the car and mount a P.T.T. switch on the steering column (or something like that) so I can offer advice when we are in carparks without taking my hands completely off the wheel...

We will catch you at the FRB. I pass it on to Bill & Rubina. What time are we thinking to set off from there?

Hmmm. 1300 at the Shell station might be a challenge. We have some Italian friends staying who are flying back to Italy on the 27th at 1100 from Aberdeen. Might have to drop them off at the airport a bit earlier than planned.

Les don't worry as it's likely we'll be lunching at the Fluke

Ok folks normally I'd post a photo of our detailed itinerary on here but with the problem of photobucket hosting I'm proposing to email everyone with it attached so you can print it off.

Is everyone ok with me displaying each other's email addresses?

Also I'd like to include a contact phone number allied to each car registration - again, has anyone any objection?

I’m sure this news is coming too late for you, but if your routes take you near Glasgow on the morning of Sunday 30th, you could stop by the SECC for Tartan Tarmac’s breakfast meet. It’s a pre-Ignition Festival special, hence the venue. We usually get 300+ cars, even on a quieter month.

Thanks for the heads-up - it might have been a go-er but leaving Spean Bridge in the morning could be pushing it!
