Tinsel on Taxi antanna's...DOH

Post by daxi on Fri Dec 25, 2009 7:44 am

I meant to post this a few days ago.
We have been driving around having a good laugh at the idiot Taxi drivers with tinsel decorating their PMR antennas.
I bet their SWR is something to write home about, I mean lets face it, I bet their PMR signal means a letter will be more efective.

I always meant to put some on the VHF antenna for the car stereo on the works van but never got round to doing it. Get into the Christmas Spirit and all in work and as I never listen to the FM radio it wouldn't affect the loss of signal from the transmitter. Maybe next year :-) though I have noticed a decline in tinsel on cars this year, must be down to the global recession :-)...
