Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)

Looks like a SWR meter for CBs.

Yes I also have one Andy but it's many years since I used it. Kept it with the portable Sat Dish I carried in the van but van now gone and I'm wondering why I'm keeping the Sat.

My home-cobbled-together-cheap-as-chips portable satellite system for the caravan is the only reason I have one. The old meter had defo seen (much) better days so at less than a fiver it was silly not to get one.

Might be worth advertising your old set up on here? A few Euroís in your pocket is better than clutter in your garage/workshop/glory-hole

You off to Portugal over the winter again??

I threw out a complete Camos Dome dish Mk1 (originally about £1400) the other day, Its on Barnard Castle Tip.

I once saw a bloke mess on for about two hours with one of those portable dishes in France only for him in the end to lose his rag and hoof the thing.

I have only ever had a cobbled together set up (except when I bought a MH with a crank up sat dish already fitted)

TV is not, in my view (geddit?) a vital thing to have whilst away, and itís certainly not worth spending the daft sums of money that auto systems are. What is it about TV that some seem incapable of surviving a couple of weeks without?

It must have taken me all off two minutes to lock onto the Sky sat Baz. Just long enough for hid to make my cuppa.
Only trouble trying to sell from here Andy is collection or postage. It will probably get buried with me.

Im not sure I would bother fitting another one on a new van. Live TV is crap and the footprint much reduced. Ours was fitted in 2008 when there wasnt much other option. Winter trips away or long trips, it was nice to have something to watch and I got fed up of arriving at places only to find there was no TV coverage. Now I just tend to carry a library of TV Series pre downloaded and we watch them when the mood suits.

Bahhhhh, kids and their recordings. Live TV is the only way to go for us oldies who need to know whats going on in the world before we peg it.
New (old) series of Line of Duty was great last night on live TV.
