Well where do I start, got rid of the old boat, decided it was going to be to much work, and too heavy. So I got myself a small tidy 9ft aluminum tinny. It still needs some work, but this one needs a hell of alot less. I’ve already sourced an outboard, I’ve got a Mercury 4Hp.
Here is the boat I bought, it’s a
71 pongrass yabby, it’s 11ft and fiberglass. It needs a bit of work, but the price was right
I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since my last post, opps must of forgotten about posting more often. Anyways, Lets see what’s new…. Well first of all, we had Jade’s birthday party last week, it was a big hit, we even had a jumping castle. Still working as a cleaner. I’ve got the TX antenna up, with obligatory flag. Also been tiding up the house and yard. Got my brother to come in and give the front garden an overhaul, and he has done a fantastic job. but I’ll have to put some pics up later, as it’s starting to go dark here. Oh, I almost forgot, I bought a boat, but more on that later.
Another day gone, and back to work tomorrow, big week this week, working mon-fri. At least we are going to the gold coast next weekend, so hopefully we’ll have some fun in the sun 😛 Other than that, nothing interesting to report, just life as normal. Still need to finish installing tx antenna, and need to get a hold of some UHF antennas. Anyway that’s about it for now, ciao
Haven’t posted in a while, my bad. Life has a habit of getting in the way, well where should I start, I’ve gotten a new job since I last posted, working as a cleaner, so that’s been keeping me busy. Lets see what else, I passed my license back in May. I also built myself a new computer, and I’m in the process of setting up a new TX antenna for rocket radio.
Anyways, can’t think of anything else for the time being, but I’ll try and post more often.
I also started up a new forum, it’s a general off topic forum, where anyone is welcome, feel free to check it out at http://forum.rocket-radio.net/
I’ve been doing work on getting my scanner online, It scans everything from QAS, QFRS, Air, Rail, Bus, but mainly QPS. Anyways check out the site.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, life tends to get in the way, as well as having problems reaching my own blog 😛 anyways, I have access back, and I’ve been busy with a few things. More to come
Ok, where to start.
We’ve had a few small offline donations, and that has been able to get use some parts, we have got 1 set of headphones, and later this week a new hard drive for the main broadcast system, this means that Rocket Radio should be returning to air in a basic form, no luxuries yet, so we won’t have a talkback line up, nor will we have a video stream/Rocket Tv. I’m hoping to get in some test broadcasts soon, and hoping to be back on regularly just after Christmas. Also it looks like we will have a new cohost, Chris aka “River”, if you want to know more about him, visit his bio here.
Before I start don’t feel obliged, you don’t have to take part if you don’t want or can’t afford too, I’m only asking for what you can AFFORD to give. Ok, I’ll start off by saying that we accepting donations, of either money or your old unused parts.
Ok, here is our target, $280 (roughly)
or you can choice to donate you old parts, here is a list of what we are in need of.
- Motherboard and matching cpu (must be p4 ht 2.8 or above)
- 3 webcams (can’t be logitechs, as they play up with our broadcast software)
- 1 Headphones (we are after a decent pair, as it will be used for monitoring)
- 2 computer mouses/mice or whatever you call them.
I know the hard drive wasn’t on that list, but I’d much prefer to use a new drive not a second hand one.
If you have parts donations just leave a comment, and I’ll email you with address to send parts to.
We thank you all in advance for any contribution you can make, especially at this time of year, with christmas on our doorstep.
