I don't want to sound like I'm not interested, but I am the Works Forman of a sucessful Engineering company.
This is my paid job, I stand many hours a day welding and organising a full workshop.
Whilst many follow M0OGY Radio and Antenna Reviews (a massive thankyou for all your support and kind words :D ) it is not a business, it is my hobby and my passion.
I am also the Chairman of an Amateur Radio club and am also involved in managing an area for the oldest 11 Meter DX Group there is.
So I'm sure you appreciate I don't sit watching Emmerdale all night :lol:

Plus more importanly I have a lovely YL who is the most tolerant person in the world, but comes before everything. :D

I don't enjoy putting Teasers on line, I will have it active on the air over the weekend and it will be on the 10 meter Amateur bands (for legal reasons) :o
I've just E-mailed one of the guys on the Grant II video who has an Amateur licence to give the Lincoln II some Air Time.

I'm sorry for keeping every one hanging on, but I knew for months a Lincoln II would come here before launch.
It's aways a mad rush to have the videos up ASAP.
TBH I thought it would of been another week coming.
Anyway thanks for the massive interest and keep tuned in!

I hope this goes some way to explaining the situation.

You don't need to explain anything Dave . CB is a hobby , not a life threatening illness . Although for some people on here you wouldn't know it . Keep up the good work !

I'll echo those sentiments - I'm sure those asking were doing so in jest. and yes we don't want you ending up sounding like the other CB Youtube reviewer who seems to have forgotten to take joy from what he does.

No don't worry I always enjoy showing the products and since the Garant II ASC video the amount from the EU who have subscribed to me has gone mad.
I have a back log of products to show over the coming months.
Thanks :D

Dave,

Keep up the good work. I am a follower on the tube too.

Family must be first and foremost. If people bought it themselves then they could do their own review just like I will when my L2 comes just like I did with my G1 and G2.

Spend the money people and make up your own mind.

There is no such thing as a Fidelity 1000 which is too good to scrap.
